Great stuff, ignore the background noises

By Mr Tuesday - Oct 23 2019

I want to rate this higher, but the background noises really pull away from the quality of the topics. Mic is too close to a bowl of M&Ms (at least that is what it sounds like) and can hear the clacking of coins and dice in a players hands during the live play episodes. But everything else is wonderful. Thanks for putting together your podcast guys. If you could change these few things, your show would get higher ratings for sure!! Keep it up.
