Poor audio quality and poorly explanation of topics

The audio quality generally renders this podcast unlistenable. Additionally, I feel that the topics are difficult to understand as the hosts and guests use a lot of acronyms, which they often assume people are familiar with.

I really only listen to student affairs live, but I haven’t listened in while because the sound quality usually leaves something to be desired. I’m not sure if the hosts give the guests a list of best practices while being interviewed, but something like muting yourself when you’re not talking or how to adjust volume. If the sound quality improves I’ll go back to listening regularly .

But what does “being authentic” actually mean? As marketers and communicators, we need to take a step back and understand the term in the truest sense so we can deliver on it. We owe it to ourselves, and, more importantly, to our constituents. Spoiler alert: There is no silver bullet.
