Great ideas but too much chatting and audio is bad

By K8L - Jan 01 2019

There’s so many great topics in the Ozarks and I love getting those stories out there, but the audio is hard to listen to. It goes from quiet to loud, with echoes and “far away voices.” I’m constantly adjusting my car’s audio. They also need to have a better plan/outline for the episodes instead of rambling and telling inside jokes for several minutes.... they got a high ranking early and seem to think that they’ve reached perfection. A high rating will just pull in more listeners who realize they have a lot of work to do to be more professional. This should also not be an “explicit” podcast but only is because they can’t control their own language. Who is editing and allows the “c” word to be published? It’s sorta embarrassing.

Subject is great but.....

I’m sad that the audio is so horrible on this. The subject matter is so interesting but it’s pretty much unlistenable. I can’t believe the Stevie Newman would push his name on something that you can’t listen too.
