    your podcast is a little painful to listen to with the dead air, people cutting one another off, et. i wish you would invest in some better sound equipment and perhaps work out the long distance skype thing (or whatever you do it). you are one the best/only english la liga podcasts out there, but if you were able to work that stuff out you’d be great to listen to.

      Hi Devin, Thanks for your constructive criticism. I did notice a lot of weird keyboard or clicking sounds, so our apologies for that. Unfortunately this is all unsponsored and we don’t make a lot of money, but we will try and makes sure this doesn’t happen again. Some of this especially the dead air, can be fixed with editing, but we rushed to get it out too quickly. Skype is unreliable but it is all we have as we are in different locations and have guests from around the world. We’ve tried other vehicles but haven’t found anything as good or better as of yet. Our podcast is tertulia style or round table style and very similar to Spain late night sports talk radio shows. Sometimes we get too excited and talk over each other, (especially me) we do try and minimize it, but it’s tough with two to three type A personalities:P. Thanks once again for your great comments and we will take it under advisement.
