Had a lot of trouble hearing the host, he is very soft spoken. Had no trouble with the guest, maybe an editing/ mixing issue.

Great idea, but slow

By WhiskeySmack - Mar 16 2018
Read more

Love maker podcasts, but this is really slow. Spends too much time on how people got started, childhood, parental influences, and subjects that are unrelated. Also spends a bit too much time on trying to sound like a radio show and would prefer down to earth, unscripted questions and answers. More depth on making, problems, solutions, and projects.
