a shame that it seems like nobody there has never listened to the show
Pollak is a great interviewer and, in any given week, if you're a fan of his guest, it's unlikely you will have heard a better interview.
But for me, the poor sound of the show makes it discouraging unless the guest is a top priority. Even after 100 shows it remains poorly mixed and not limited. You'll find yourself constantly leaping for the volume knob as people laugh, joke and make your speakers crackle, and then become introspective and can't be heard. Sound effects and music are twice as loud as the talk.
It's amazing that a show that looks like a lot of money and effort has been put into the product sounds like nobody there has ever listened to it and bothered to correct big problems.
