Great Podcast on UX with worthy people

By masterbluestar - Sep 04 2016

Great overall, but the host should invest in a better microphone. He sounds like he's on a 50s bakelite rotary phone from Siberia! :) So, one could say it's "bad listener UX" ? :)

Really bad sound quality

Great content but painful to listen to because the audio is so terrible.
