I'm sad that this podcast is no longer being produced. Since podcasts can be made by just about anyone, there is a lot of dreck out there - this is definitely not one of them. It's a shame this did not get a wider audience - it's a gem. I discovered it late, so I have many to listen to, but still sad. Sound quality is absolutely fine, guy who gave this one star for that reason needs to get his hearing checked.

Great work! Great Podcast!
