While the topic is interesting, the quality of audio is really horrible. The main story is carried by a speaker barely audible, while off-beat comments and laughs are in a blasting volume. If you are putting a podcast together level your audio or at least get good mikes, otherwise it’s not really worth listening to.
I love this podcast 💕
I think that what these two are doing is really great and important. The podcast is very informative and I love the flow of the show. The round table segments are also great because they touch on lgbt issues today, which give food for thought. 🏳️🌈🏳️🌈🏳️🌈🏳️🌈🏳️🌈🏳️🌈🏳️🌈🏳️🌈🏳️🌈🏳️🌈🏳️🌈🏳️🌈
Great info and great presentation
A very informative and well-paced show. The hosts have good chemistry and their dedication to their research topics really shines through. I had been looking for more podcasts to listen to, and had also been meaning to learn more about LGBT history. Very glad to have found this show!
