recent changes to the podcast

I always enjoy listening to the Guardian Books podcast. But for heaven's sakes, get rid of the audio "leaders" that now begin every episode. The recent episode on Latin American poetry, for example, was prefaced by two or three minutes of random sounds that included newsreaders intoning authorial obituaries, decontextualized snippets of prose and poetry, and someone playing an accordion badly. Such additions do nothing for the podcast and indeed may form an obstacle for some listeners. I, for my part, scroll past this material until I reach the point where the show actually begins. In brief, less style and more substance is warranted. Thank you!
