Customer Reviews

Fix the audio quality.

The podcast information is great. But the audio must be recorded on an iPhone in someone's pocket. You can't hear everyone and somebody keeps pounding on the table. Maybe they can use two cans and a string to get better sound quality. Please spend $25 on a cheap microphone. It has to be better than what you are using.

Hard to Listen to Excellent Content

Check 6 has very knowlegeable hosts talking about everything happening in Aerospace. The content is always interesting and well presented. The hosts generally do a good job of explaining the content. If you're in the aerospace world, it's a great show.

Unfortunately it's also incredibly painful to listen to. Production value is very low. The main issue is audio quality - often hosts are clearly calling in over a telephone, or worse, speakerphone. Volume levels are all over the place, making it sometimes literally painful to listen to. Beeps and Boops from cell phones and laptops in the background are fairly common, as is banging away at a keyboard. For a show that attempts to have a serious discussion, the production quality makes it hard to maintain that level of professionalism.

Additionally, the main host changes every week. As a result, none of them ever seem to get better at it. It's always a bit awkward. Having one constant host with rotating co-hosts lets the experienced host guide the show and lead any new co-hosts or guests.

1) Buy good Microphones for all your regulars.
2) Silence your cellphones and laptops when you record.
3) Pick a main host.

The content of the show is great, but I'm sure the production is turning away listeners. It usually backs up in my queue before I slog through them.

Please get an audio engineer! :(

This program is so interesting! But in the three years that I have been listening to it, it has the worst audio modulation of any podcast I subscribe to. The volume goes up… The volume goes down! I like to listen to it when I’m in the shower… I turn it way up, and eventually the noise just fades out and then all the sudden the noise is back!
Come on guys! It’s a great program! But please fix the sound problems!!
