One thought on “Ep.366: Rebuilding the Red Wings”
Super enjoyed this PDO cast, as I’m a lifelong Redwings fan. First time listening to your show, and would definitely listen again.
Wanted to leave some feedback regarding the sound engineering on this episode. Prashant’s mic was much quieter than yours, so I would turn it up in my car, and then when you would interject or reply the volume was waaaaaay louder causing distortion on the speakers as well as an uncomfortable listening experience.
Hopefully your technical director can find a way to even out the volume going forward…
Otherwise, insightful analysis!
