Transition sound is jarring, obnoxious, and TOO LOUD
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.
