A genuinely honest review...

Host, Fraser Cain, speaks with some of the world's most scholarly journalists to discuss weekly news about space, science, and astronomy. A wonderful concept with the potential to be a great Podcast; however, I'm completely dumbfounded as to why such a well-educated and intelligent group of academics can't seem to figure out how to record a proper Podcast?? Each and every week, the audio quality/engineering is an absolute atrocity!! The guest's completely drop out in the middle of their discussions, often for several minutes at a time, the vocal quality sound as if it's being routed through the International Space Station and sent back to Mr. Cain's iPhone, and both the host and each guest's vocal level varies from barely audible to painfully loud (and always "tinny"). Unfortunately, this Podcast is run by amateurs, which makes it entirely unlistenable. For the love of God, please learn how to record a Podcast (or at the very least, try!) - it could be great. 5 stars for the guests, 0 stars for the audio quality, and 2 stars for Fraser Cain as a host.
