The Laughing is So Freaking Loud

The laughter is simply too loud, and it genuinely hurts my ears when I try to listen to this podcast. I appreciate the attempt to inject levity and a sense of humor into what some might consider to be a dry subject, but the audio issues are too much for me. The laughter is much louder than the regular speaking, and it becomes annoying and painful to listen to after a while. It bums me out to have to give a low score, because I genuinely enjoy hearing the perspectives that the hosts bring to Roman history. It’s ok to laugh, and to even laugh frequently, but please don’t do it so dang close to the microphone!

I like this a lot but

I enjoy the content in this pod but please stop the laughing and giggling. It sounds like a bunch of teenagers discussing Justin Beiber.

Excellent content - Amateurish delivery

Any podcast on ancient Rome is to be commended and there is interesting material set forth which makes this podcast of value.

Unfortunately, the audio quality is poor at best, and the podcaster's contrived delivery style is amateurish. Both incessantly laugh after virtually every line, which quickly becomes distracting and annoying. Further, the microphone volume is very poor-the podcasters laugh so loud that it is jarring for those using headphones while listening. If only these ladies would relax and speak naturally instead of using their forced and affected styles which simply don't work.
