Brief review

By Mcpmerl - Dec 30 2019
Read more
Love this podcast, but quality of some interviews is so poor I can’t listen. One suggestion is to not interrupt guests for repetitive comments . And I love the interviewer’s enthusiasm.

Was hoping for better

I’ve only tried listening to 2 shows and could not finish either. The first was with Rob Appell and the sound quality was horrible. I could barely hear him and had to turn the volume almost all the way up, then when she spoke, it about blew my eardrums out. The second time was with The Stitch Ladies. The fact the host was eating food/chips(?) while interviewing was just plain rude. Between listening to all the food wrapper crinkling, food crunching, and the host *constantly* talking over the guests, I just gave up. I was really looking forward to this podcast, but I am not a fan and will look for these guests on other podcasts.
