They’re fun to listen to but their audio is awful. They constantly have the white noise buzz in the background and when one of them gets too close to the mic, excited or too loud your speakers will pop. There’s a lot of dead air to that after a moment Baxter will respond with “yeah” followed by more dead air. It’s great getting lore but they’re clearly not at a professional level of podcasting

Great stuff
