Customer Reviews

poor sound

I find it very disconcerting that the whole class laughs when he said his predecessor was hit by a car and killed…. poor sound quality

Could have been great

I regret having to give this podcast a low rating. The few parts I could make out indicate a informative content but the poor sound quality spoil the experience.


I generally listen to audiobooks and lectures during my commute to work. I would have loved to hear this one. Unfortunately the poor quality of the recordings made that impossible. I'm not sure why this is even on itunes.
