Find the young person in the office

Content? 100%. Sound quality? Unlistenable. Please, put $20 into your production and record some clear audio. Go find the young person who knows something about the internet and have them handle the record and editing. Sounds like it was recorded by accident.

Conference call about latest aviation news

Great content. Good way to keep up with the latest aviation industry developments.Sound quality?....I guess I’ve been on worse conference calls. This one seems professional, sounds like they are in proper offices...There hasn’t been background sounds of toilets flushing, or kids screaming, or car turning signals. Also no snoring, dropped calls, or issues sharing their desktop, or apologies when someone realizes they’ve been talking on mute.

Great content but audio quality is lacking

I love to hear about the new projects and what is happening in aviation, but the audio quality is lacking. It sounds like they are recording with a potato. In all honesty they are probably recording in conference room and background sounds can be distracting. Also call in guest volume varies and can be difficult to hear

Horrible sound quality, but good info

If you can get a past the horrible sound quality and the self indulgence of the narrators, it’s ok.

Good Info, Poor Production

Content is good, but the recordings can be difficult to hear. They need to put some resources into their productions

It’s good not great

Some interesting conversations but I can’t stand that someone coughed in the episode and it was ear splitting in my car. Seriously ruined this show for me

Fantastic topics, worst podcast audio

I am genuinely surprised aviation week does not see the potential in their own podcast.

Please Fix the Audio

I want to like this podcast because they talk about very interesting stuff, but the audio quality makes it very hard. Audio quality must be your top priority, as this is your only form of communication in a podcast.

Terrible production

Interesting information, but basically not worth it because the audio production is somewhere between terrible and nonexistent. Levels of different speakers are all over the place, recordings are incredibly noisy, hosts sound like they are speaking through a dial up Skype call

Audio quality has been terrible for years

Content is up to date, but you can’t even hear them talking. I have my car audio at max and the German guy is 0% understandable. Please fix the audio.

Please Mix this Better

Content is adequate. The sound quality is some of the worst imaginable.

Why am I bothering...

I don’t know why I’m writing this - no other request to improve audio quality for Check Six podcast has been listened to. The request to improve audio quality go back more than a year. Really?? Obviously no one from Aviation Week reads comments or listens to the show. If they did they would be applauded at the production quality. I’m listening to an episode now and one of the commentators can’t even be heard on full volume. I think she is in another room whispering from behind a closed door. This show has interesting content, great stories and knowledgeable reporters. Sad that they can’t get it right. Oh audio just got better for 3 minutes now gone to whispers again. Please work on this...

Please get an audio engineer! :(

This program is so interesting! But in the three years that I have been listening to it, it has the worst audio modulation of any podcast I subscribe to. The volume goes up… The volume goes down! I like to listen to it when I’m in the shower… I turn it way up, and eventually the noise just fades out and then all the sudden the noise is back!Come on guys! It’s a great program! But please fix the sound problems!!

Please get Ms. Hudson a vocal coach

I greatly enjoy the variety, depth, and detail of all things Aerospace covered by Check 6. However, Pentagon Editor Lee Hudson speaks with such severe up-talking and vocal fry it makes my teeth hurt. I suspect she is unaware of how grating her voice is, and it could be corrected with a little effort. I am very interested in what she has to say, but the way she says it feels like a fork on a chalkboard. I have read that up-talk is a means of softening tone and seeming inclusive, but when conveying technical information, it make the speaker seem unsure, and so what they say becomes unreliable, which is counter-productive for a journalist.

Great content, terrible audio

Great content but need to purchase appropriate equipment to improve audio quality. Low level podcasts have good audio, shouldn’t be that hard for a major publication

Please get real Microphones!!!

Great content. Completely unlistenable due to audio quality. The only podcast I have listened to that has this problem. Poor effort from such an amazing magazine.

Check 6 by Aviation Week has always been a great podcast for content about aviation and space. HOWEVER, the sound quality is terrible, sometimes it borders on being unlistenable. I'd rate this podcast higher if they took the time to get some good microphones. Given all the quality in podcasting now, the sound quality is really not acceptable. Update November 2018: they have the same issues, nothing has been improved. Sorry, but I’m deleting this podcast. Last week’s episode was not understandable.

Terrible audio quality

Do you people never listen to your audio before posting it? Buy some decent microphones and get out of the wind when you talk.
