I love the podcast but FIX YOUR AUDIO

By Aspiring Actuary - Aug 12 2018
Read more
Great content, but interviewer sounds like he’s not even listening and is just going through questions. Still I love the people that get interviewed, and wish that the interviews could go longer (40+ minutes, maybe in a separate episode?). I’ve learned so much from this podcast. Sound quality is HORRIBLE. Please fix this.

Nice overviews

While I’m personally interested in the research podcasts, each provides a short overview that introduces the highlights of a topic that I might then look into more deeply. I encourage all the sections to look into this.
