AutismSpeaks and Zampy were kind enough to stop by and talk Ranked Battle Meta and more, despite wedding anniversaries. Check it out.

I listened to episode 8 today. Excellent job and good guests. I especially like how you guys take a bit of time to go beyond the obvious. When I listen to podcasts I'm not in a hurry. Make em 10 hours long for all I care as long as they're interesting and delve into the subject a bit.

 

I would just warn against regurgitating everything written on the forums and actually think and develop an opinion or insight on the subject. Not that you guys were.. Just saying.

The most recent episode is a must for any CV player, new or experienced. Talked with a couple of the best around.

Just a suggestion, the audio quality feels like it could be much better. For one, a much higher master volume would be nice. When in my car, I have to have everything cranked to max and can still barely hear it, especially if I want to crack the window. Professional podcasts are much louder. Maybe set the volume so if you're streaming over your phone to a radio and switch to a radio station, the volume is roughly equal.

I'm using Bluetooth and I know that wireless things, especially FM transmitters can expect some signal loss but yeah, pro podcasts are much louder.

 

 

That brings me to another point which is the overall quality of the audio. It's pretty obvious you guys are using teamspeak or something to do your interviews. Now I know that you can't fly people around to do it in person but there are still some things that could be done.

For starters, explore other options like conference phone calls or maybe skype has better quality.

Teamspeak and some other programs/mics make things very quiet until someone raises their voice in excitement or to strengthen a point and then it's really really loud! Also things like blowing in the mic come out much louder than the speech itself.Use of push-to-talk might help and heavy editing to get out the "PUHs" and stuff would result in a better sound too.

 

One last suggestion, speak much slower than you normally would.

Us listeners aren't listening nearly as actively as we would be if we were actually in conversation with you. So if something distracts us for a split second and you got off a whole sentence in that time, we're lost. Speaking slower also helps to speak clearer, gives you time to formulate your sentence more carefully, and also is just more pleasant on the ears IMO

 

In spite of my criticism I really think this is a great podcast and I'm anticipating the next one to land on my phone. Thanks for the show :)

@R1CK all good points and will keep working to get the guests on some other, more favorable recording platforms. We will see what we can do over the next few episodes to rectify some of those things.

 

@Zarny, sorry I was in the middle of a big move and some disputes with landlords, threw us off about 10 days, We are putting out another pod tomorrow night, should be published then as well. Thanks for the patience folks and keep the feedback coming.

Enjoying the podcast guys, and keep up the good work! What would be cool is an interview with one of the CC like chase or LWM. that would be interesting.

I think I already mentioned it but the podcast is much much too quiet. It doesn't matter what vehicle I'm in and it doesn't matter if I used Bluetooth or an analog cable, the stereo is cranked and it's barely audible with the windows closed.
