  1. Hi, I enjoy your podcast. I have been disappointed lately though because the sound quality is bad. I can not hear the person you are interviewing. I listen on an ipod and download through Itunes. Any ideas on what could be wrong?


    1. Hi Megan! Sorry for the recent issue with sound quality. We have a new podcast editor and worked out the issue, so hopefully it’s resolved on your end. Please let us know if you still have issues. We appreciate you!
