To Many Ads
Just listened to my very first podcast from this series. Don't waste your time. Two Minutes and thirty-three seconds were spent on ads for Barron's Magizine. Don't waste that much of our time with that ads! Get to the stories and move on!
Decent. Sound effects are really distracting
This is a good, serviceable podcast, but the Tinkerbell sound effects between each segment are inexcusably annoying and bring down the overall quality.
Good program - poor audio
I like the program content a lot, but the breaking glass sound effect between each story is eardrum shattering if you're wearing ear phones (especially if you're using good sound isolating ear phones like you need here in NYC to drown out traffic noise). There is no warning or break so you can quickly hit the volume button or fast forward. Listen to this program only on your laptop speakers to save your ears....
