The annoying background music made this podcast impossible to enjoy. What is the producer trying to do? I just turned it off after a few minutes. I'm sure I wasn't the only one. Terrible!!

All of the sound effects, audio hiccups and song inserts make this a painful listen. It's too bad we can't just listen to the experts and information that we tuned in to hear.
