    Rob, I appreciate what your doing, I’ve listened to every episode, and I think the topic of this episode was good. Having said that, I don’t think it should have aired. The voice quality of your guest was so bad (presumably due to connectivity issues) that I had a very hard time understanding what he said. I still don’t understand what he said about striker fired pistols, and I’ve re-listened several times. I know it would be frustrating to redo or not air and episode that you’ve put a lot of work into, but I think in the long run running episodes with poor sound quality hurts your reputation and overall goal. I mean this only as constructive criticism, and hope you take it that way.

      Chad, thanks for the feedback and I’m sorry that the sound quality wasn’t up to your expectation. My goal has always been to produce a quality prodcast and will work on making sure future episodes have better sound quality.

    Chad – I’d tried to clean up the episode as best I can and hopefully you’ll be able to understand what you couldn’t in the first version of the episode. The episode isn’t perfect but I think you can hear everything now.

    Thanks Rob. I look forward to more great episodes in the future.
