||Rebooting the News #92||Dave calls this “the best RBTN we’ve ever done.” Why? “All the others were punditry.

||Rebooting the News #86||Jay was on a plane flying back from the SXSW conference, so I did something new I’ve been wanting to do for a while, a call-in show. The first caller was my old podcast partner Adam Curry, so we spent quite some time talking about blogging, podcasting and catching up. Must do this again sometime […]||3/15/11||Free||View In iTunes|
Good Discussions, Poor Sound Quality
Dave and Jay have some great insight into how the news media (and media in general) is changing and their discussions are very interesting. However, the quality of the recordings is very poor, to the point that it's sometimes difficult to follow the conversation. You would think that someone who's credited with being one of the fathers of podcasting (that would be Dave) could figure out how to make a decent audio recording. I'm not asking for fancy edits, just clear sound.
Love the podcast!
I love the content of the podcast and feel the hosts have very important things to say, but alas, like the other reviewer, I feel the quality is low. But there is a chance they just can't afford fancy mics?
