Informative at times; very rookie info other times

What is that terrible screeching sound at the beginning of each podcast?? It started appearing maybe around late December ‘21.

WSJ has a tough task on hand because a lot of young folks are entering the financial world these days, and so WSJ has been releasing some podcasts that offer tips and guidelines for rookies who are learning the ropes of personal finance. That makes some episodes too skippable for those who have been at it financially for years. Sometimes I still listen to those episodes geared towards young folks but I’d prefer each episode to be more deeply informative.

C3 AI

Can we seriously cut down C3 AI adds? or maybe make it more fun, interesting?

Terrible intro noise - what happened

Ok- 5 stars because I love the content and JR is great to listen to. Fantastic content.

With that said, since the start of 2022 there is this glitchy high pitch intro on the sound track that is loud and KILLS your ears. What happened and please fix it

- a concerned and avid WSJ listener
