Great podcast covering some very interesting topics.
Volume is so low. Not sure if is my device.
Great Aussie tech podcast. Refreshing to hear Aussie accents in a sea of American tech podcasts. Only issue is volume, I have to put my car stereo louder. But when you guys have music on there is a sudden surge of sound. It's definitely this podcast. I switch to another podcast and I have to put the volume lower.
