Good content, bad audio

Edit: 8/4/20
The quality was much better this episode!

Previous comment:
He has great content, not the best speaker but not horrible as others mentioned. The audio quality is what gets me, there’s so many decent USB mics for a podcast that sound better than this, it’s as if he’s recording on his phone. Today’s episode really got me, I couldn’t even focus because I could hear people (assuming kids & wife) and birds in the background. I’m all for comfortable WFH situations but if you’re going to be recording such a short podcast, at least hide in the bathroom for 5mins to record (plenty great albums were recorded with bathroom acoustics).

Tooooo Pokitical

Nicholas Thompson needs to leave his heavy handed politics at home and stick to the technology. Seems it was betters few months ago. If this continues to happen I suspect lots will unsubscribe which would be a shame.

Horrible audio

Someone show this guy how to speak into a mic. Sharp Volume difference is really annoying. Love the content tho
