    Ken, I am a big fan of you, your approach to the audience and the world in general and of the podcasts. But Dude — I can’t believe you’re this far in and your podcasts still SOUND HORRIBLE. They scream, “I am an amateur and not only do I not know what I’m doing, I don’t know that I don’t know.” All that room echo is hideous, and your midlevels are so high that I have to run your ‘cast through an equalizer in order to understand what is being said. If I heard sound like that at one of your productions, I’d think the producer was too dumb to hire a good sound designer.

    You know a lot of people in the business, including sound people. Get some recommendations on good mikes and perhaps good mixers to use in your podcasts, because the sound is embarrassing, honestly and it does not project the image of professionalism and care that I think you want to. While you’re trying to think of a sound designer friend who will give you free advice, you can check out this article. http://www.tapeshare.com/Zone5/PS149_1906.jpg You don’t have to spend a lot — the Blue Snowball is just fine…but, please, seriously think about it.

    Remember, this is from someone who likes what you’re doing and supports you…
