“Voice podcasts need to be louder than for listening to music. You need to comfortably discriminate every word to understand and make sense of the content. If you are in a gym, on a walk, or anywhere in public you generally have to turn the sound up.
With Mac Power Users you get blasted with a jarring, obnoxious, and TOO LOUD sound to announce each commercial. To make matters worse, they blast the sound again at the end of the commercial.
A VU meter may show that jarring sound to be within normal range, but just like TV commercials from years ago, it is too loud to match the voice content.
I listen to the podcast for the great content, but get angry each and every time I am blasted by that sudden, jarring, obnoxious, and TOO LOUD riff of sound.”
