The audio is variable and sound quality is awful. It’s such a pity because I think you have great content (if I could hear it all). Adjusting volume is no good because it seems in panel discussions not everyone is equally miked. So one speaker blasts out and another is barely audible. I’m tending to listen to the intro and the first few minutes and then deleting when I realise how difficult listening will be.
