“I found this series from a sister podcast, "New Books in History." I heard one podcast from each, and find them to be pretty good insofar as the quality of discussion.
But, after listening to the episode "Compass of Pleasure" do have a few complaints.
One is the quality of the interviewers microphone. It was worse than the author she was interviewing and I found it to be pretty distracting. The second was a little more baffling. She either didn't seem that interested, or didn't know how to continue the conversation in a very fluid way. As a result it felt a little bit more like a one-sided lecture than an actual discussion.
I'll continue to listen to the podcast for the titles which interest me, but I hope it gets better by just being easier to listen to.”
