I love the content of this show, but the recording/sound quality is pretty poor. It sounds like it's a third party person secretly recording the show from his/her shirt pocket. Sometimes you hear heavy breathing or moving their mouth & other times like something is being drug across the mic. Fix the recording of this helpful & informative content!
