Great content, ad audio levels need work

I have been a devout early AM WSJ consumer for 20+ years starting with print, then web, now mostly iPhone app. However, I am now commuting and loving the WSJ podcasts. HOWEVER, if you are going to hit the play button, be warned: you will have to quickly ride the volume down whenever an ad plays at the beginning (or sometimes middle) of a podcast. And then quickly bring the volume back up quite a bit for the content. These are basic fundamentals of broadcast that are being overlooked - i.e. ad producers think if you make ads really loud, they will get more attention - which is like yelling at someone when they don’t understand English. And particularly difficult (and uncomfortable to deal with) if you don’t have quick access to an old school analog volume knob...

Obfuscates Anonymous

One reporter asks another reporter and no clear answer to a simple question.
Very poor journalism. It would be refreshing if Ann Marie Vertoli could interview a reporter without that reporter constantly “taking up” and the reporter have the gumption to make a declarative statement. Good music though
