If there are areas where we can improve please let us know. For example, one attentive listener pointed out that we were not on Stitcher (thank you!), and we were able to follow up and make the connection. Also, we hear that background noise can get a bit distracting in some episodes. We’ll work on our post production skills to improve sound quality, but sometimes, in order to catch an interview, we have to record in conditions that are not ideal for background noise. Feel free to use our survey form although, if you want us to know immediately how badly we pronounced Mourvèdre, your ALL CAPS TWEET will get here sooner! We welcome all of it, especially the fire-Producer-J-and-bring-back-Giulia messages!
