    How about finishing eating and drinking BEFORE you start recording? Just a thought...

    The guy talking about not liking beats because of sound quality is EATING directly into the microphone.

    We will make sure to feed Mikey before the mic turns on. And yes, I get people who don't like Beats as high-fidelity audio snobs, but come on.

    This is the worst podcast ever.  I mean seriously WTF is the stuffing your pie hole while you talk.  You know if that's all the respect you give listeners and readers of your stuff then I'm done. It is like you don't give one crap about this. Like it a burden. 

     I listened to one other podcast from you guys and the other guy was breathing into the microphone the whole time.  Horrible.  Seriously. I can't even give you three strikes.  The host is good. It the other guests.  Horrible.

    OMFG - I just could not listen to this past the 15 minute mark. It sounded like one of you guys was eating. It's pretty revolting to listen to someone masticating and talking at the same time. Can you imagine sitting down to watch the news and the newsreader is tucking into his lunch live on air?! Don't you care about your listenership? Seems like you really don't. Unbelievable.

    It's bad enough when podcasters can't even be bothered to mute their phones and tablets - thereby making the listener think any audible notifications are from your own phone. But this just takes the biscuit!

    I don't think I'll be listening any more.

    I tried to listen to this podcast today and could not finish it due to Mikey's constant eating.  Very unprofessional and not respectful of your listeners.

    annnnnnnnndddddddd then his phone rings. I used to really like this podcast. I wish you'd take it more seriously. This was below going through the motions - basically contempt for your listeners. I hope casper got their money back for this one.

    I was going to comment on the phone too.  And yea, if this is the kind of marketing Casper supports I need to call them because I will blow them away with the professionalism I exhibit. I am in marketing and this is (as I thought as I listened to it), wasted money. I'm in marketing and I about choked on my tongue to hear this was sponsored.

    How about burping and farting on the next show? That's gonna definitely attract more listeners... Making those sounds is not just unprofessional, it's freaking irritating!!!

    Months late to the party, but -- are you serious? Why would AI allow such disrespect of your own audience? If you aren't serious enough to record a podcast in a professional fashion, then I'm not serious enough to waste my time listening to it. Fail.
