Great, Good, and needs to be LOUDER
The content is wonderfully diverse and pertinent with the right level of depth and detail. That’s the GOOD part of the title. The GREAT is the time allocation. The length of each podcast is great. Unfortunately, the sound needs to be louder and leveled. Listening to this podcast is like sitting at a fire side chat and needing to lean in to hear the subtle nuances. This is not ideal for listening to while at the gym or when out on a run.
