Good content, beyond abysmal sound quality.

Two stars for content. Loved hearing the thoughts and stories about woman writers. But the sound quality is SO terrible, found it unbearable. Could not understand much of what was said and the sound is tinny and echo-y, very unpleasant. Improve the sound and would return to listen, again.
