Customer Reviews

Great content, poor sound quality

I find the content of this podcast fascinating, and have read many of the books referenced after hearing about them on the podcast, but I implore Dr. Bradburn and his staff to please get better recording equipment!! Using multiple microphones, one per speaker, would greatly improve the listening experience. I've had to delete many episodes simply because I couldn't hear the speakers over the ambient noise wherever I was attempting to listen.
