Good stuff!

Great job guys. I love the content. Keep it up!

Good content, awful audio quality

You might think that these guys would listen to their own podcast but it doesn't seem like it. The audio quality is horrendous. All you have to do is listen to the intro. The audio is all over the place. The tease is loud and the clip is nearly inaudible. Some episodes are so quiet that if you're getting driving directions your speakers might blow out when the voice directions comes on. It sounds like one guy is using a microphone and the other is sitting in a closet using the built in laptop mic.

Show some effort guys. Go to Amazon and buy a $50 microphone and also level your audio.

Decent

Good content, but it sounds like only one of the two hosts has a microphone. It’s like putting my ear near a phone while someone’s having a conversation on it. I miss half of what the other person is saying.
