Hard to listen to (literally)
I want to like this pod, I do. I love Indiewire's Very Good TV pod. This one is a hard listen, a lot of that to do with very poor sound quality (and mixing) particularly of any of the show's interviews. The extended clips of upcoming shows are unnecessary and difficult to listen to (we're talking TV after all, a pretty visual medium), they should be a few seconds at most, but some seem to go on forever. I do like the week's overview (bar those clips) but them I'm out, but it doesn't matter, you can't here much more anyway.
I really want to like this podcast, but I find the audio to not be up to par (compared to the other IndieWire podcasts). I’m still trying to listen when new ones are posted.
