The music distracts me too.
(I can't help but notice that most all of the classical CM's podcasts' music are similar and very distracting.) Please don't attribute bad will, but these are my honest thoughts. First and foremost the episodes are too long. I'm sorry, but my habit of attention can only handle so long. Maybe consider shortening? Also, I don't agree with a lot of the interpretations of Mason's words. This is especially the case whenever I hear Karen Glass speak too. I completely see Art Middlekauff's point about interpretation through the lens of our biases. I know the majority of your audience wouldn't agree with me, and that's ok. I just can't help but fell sad (because I personally am affected by this) for all the confusion that exist in the CM community over so many people's interpretations of Mason's words. New moms to the Method, like me, drown under all the the conflicting CM views/implementations out there. I know Aftercasts and all the Classical CM crowd mean well, but boy is it confusing. I just find the substance of the "other 2 CM podcasts" so much more informative. Although I must say that I enjoyed the episode with Art Middlekauff very much.
