Good idea, sub average execution
I am a big fan of podcasts, and I have been receiving my news in this format for some time, so when I found this podcast about the local politics and news that impact my daily life, I was excited. Unfortunately, the sound quality is far from adequate, and there could be a wider variety of guests. With that being said, I applaud The Hartford Courant for making moves into the world of podcasting. I will certainly continue to listen to this podcast and I look forward to any improvements that are made moving forward. Keep up the good work.
