Misophonia, that's a new one thanks. Restaurants are fine, but Carl's Junior commercials are not so great. Maybe it's just context? I go to a restaurant I expect to hear eating, but there's also conversation, and I'm typically eating too. Listening to a podcast, is totally different, those earbuds are right in your ear, and the whole concept is that you are listening... You're trying to follow a story, and waiting for some comedic timing to hopefully hit the mark. It's not like dinner, and it's not like listening to a song you've heard dozens of times before. And that's why the quality matters. You want people to hear what you're saying, otherwise you'd just play D&D in your basement. And you want it to be something that you're dick tracing proud of, that's why you do it in a studio with a producer, not on a hissing Radio Shack microphone.
Really, that's the only thing I can find fault with on the show though. I guess I should have given a bit more praise and then the little 'room for improvement' comment.
Sorry to raise your hackles Dan. It wasn't my intention.
