Good Idea- Bad Execution and horrible audio
As a long time Sports Illustrated the magazine subscriber I wanted to like this Podcast. I tried to like this Podcast. But they didn't make it easy and it's not worth the effort. There doesn't seem to be any direction behind this podcast. It is not on a regular basis and the host and style of the podcast changes from one episode to the next. The worst thing in my opinion is the poor production quality. The audio is just awful. I really wanted to listen to the Andre Agassi interview but it was unbearable to listen to. I give up.
This isn't just for fans if SI the mag. The topics are timely and the guests are established experts in their fields.
Poor audio quality dooms the podcast
Considering Sport Illustrated is a multi-million dollar (at least) corporation, one would epert them to throw a few bucks towards a better quality of podcast. The most recent one I listened to -- an interview with Andre Agassi re: his new book -- was spectacularly poor. At best, the majority of the interviews sound like they're conducted in a bathroom.
