I would love to give this podcast 5 stars, but I can’t listen to an episode all the way through because of formatting problems they have. The podcast randomly restarts and won’t let me skip ahead or behind at all. They really need to fix it. (Not being able to skip back is especially frustrating if you missed a title or author name and want to go back to hear it.)

Formatting issues

PW is a large established magazine, but they can’t seem to format a podcast correctly. Someone will be talking and the bumper will be dropped in randomly then the same segment starts over again. I gave up on this episode after hearing the intro discussion for Fire and Fury three times. There’s probably some informative content here, but someone needs to do some podcast editing. I’ve noticed this issue on the 2 or 3 episodes I’ve tried to listen to.
