    Guys, enjoyed most of the Nicholas Routzen podcast–except for Mr Routzen’s part. The audio was so bad that his words were barely intelligible. Not sure whether he was mumbling, had a bad cell connection, or what. It was just awful.

    I have noticed this on more than one occasion when you’ve done cell-phone interviews. Understand a land line is not always possible, but gosh!
