Needs some help to be good
Great content but sound quality is lacking. To be a very good podcast, the library needs to take advantage of its excellent resources and improve the sound especially. I love listening to this but compared to other podcasts the sound is the main issue that needs addressing.
Low to high sound when laughter is introduced. Can hurt ears since volume already needed to be turned up.
Bad micing for interviews, one is high other low, another strain on ears.
Clean these things up and I’ll rate you a 5 in the futute!
