      this podcast was polluted with low frequency noise - like the hum from old AC/DC transformer

        We'd sorted this out beforehand. Dave was on a Mac laptop, either a Macbook Pro or a Powerbook, and thoe can sometime have 60Hz hum like that. The solution is to keep a hand on it at all times, but during the course of a podcast, it's easy to forget. Stay tuned for the next couple weeks, trying to keep the Podcast exciting and interesting. -Dan

      Agree with the fellow who said worst ever. I gave up it was so irritating. Between the buzzing noise and the non-car orientation of the guest (your boss) I just deleted the file. Normally love the show and make it a scheduled part of my week but this was horrible. You shouldn't even be doing a podcast if you don't know the basics of audio.

      Just getting caught up on my backlog of podcasts. All of my least favorite podcasts seem to be any that have Dave Kiley as a guest. I could go on about it but I hope we don't hear a lot out of him in the future.

      David was podcast death! His rambling, his microphone, his wheezing; I don 't know how you guys kept it together -- Zach barely did, honestly -- but I promise I won't be able to listen to another podcast of which he is a part. Worst. Episode. Ever. Dan: you're doing a great job. Sincerely.

      A Murano may not suck that but that podcast not so much. Please more auto less everything else
