I wish I could enjoy this podcast
As much as I really value the topics and discussion this podcast facilitates, I guess I'll just have to stick to the blog. The production quality of this podcast is dismally poor. Foreground noise, static, sometimes a weird echoing effect. I realize that Skype and such are needed in order to feature contributors from all over the place, but the sound quality is so distracting, I find I cannot enjoy the content.
Whatever needs to be done, whether its swathing to different software for the communication/recording, better mics (or other hardware), or better editing. I would think it embarrassing to release podcasts of this quality, especially when the topic is often centered on productivity and being better at what we do.
