As always a great show, however the audio is terrible.
None of the separate microphones have been balanced. This makes for uneven volume and sounds awful!!

Rather than "terrible", I'd say the audio is just unbalanced enough to be uncomfortable, turning up the sound to hear the moderator, then having the sidekicks blast through my eardrums with random outbursts that I can't anticipate. Some dynamic range compression or post-production leveling would be appreciated... :)

I fully agree with the both of you, and want to let everyone know im working on it. The root of my issues stem from having 3 (in this case 4) different people coming across one input on the mixer, since skype is running on all on the same computer. Due to this, I have to level them with each skype call's levels, which isnt the greatest. This combined with the fact that I have to monitor the show at the board level, and cant listen to the ultimate stream output (a few different volume sliders later in the chain) has brought me some difficulties.


However, I AM working on this, and I hope to have it a better, soon.

Hey Ryan,

One thing I really like about your podcast is how you direct the questions to certain individuals. This is great as there isn't a lot of people trying to talk over one another. In the latest podcast you had someone else on from your staff in addition to the normal cast. This was awesome. I'd encourage you to keep brining other people on. Most podcasts (TWIT) have an issue with more than 3 people but yours benefits from it.

If I had any critiques I would just like it to be a little longer.

Keep up the good work!

A lot of that comes from Ryan knowing his staff very well -- particularly with knowing which co-host suits the topic best.

Thanks for the response Ken. Perhaps a bit of pre-show tuning?
Regardless the show is great and you are doing a great job.
