Good content, inconsitent audio quality
The content is really great for students, developers, and hiring mangers looking for additional perspective on the difficult and controversial topic of hiring software developers. I like the no-nonsense format of the podcast, the consice length, and the thoughtful questions. However, the audio quality has been very inconsitent, and the latest interview with Rumpa Giri was almost unintelligible. I hope they can find a solution for more consistent audio quality, even if that involves screening out interview candidates.
