I had to give up...
Interesting material, but I had to give up after just two episodes, as I can't follow what they're saying (yes, I am a native English speaker, albeit not from the U.S.) Whilst I dislike podcasts that consist of monotone recital from a script, this goes to the opposite extreme. They need to slow it right down, enunciate clearly, and present the story in some sort of coherent order. This style of "listening in" on two friends' excitable chatter doesn't do justice (no pun intended) to the content, which would be good. It may be that they improve with practice, and later episodes are better, but this was too hard work for me to persevere to find out. I think poor sound quality exacerbates the problem, as I thought I just didn't have it loud enough, but turning it up didn't help. It's loud enough, but not clear enough. It has potential, as they're likeable hosts with some interesting and lesser-known stories, but the production values miss the mark.
