    Why not change these podcasts into a stream on Twitch? Kind of like a Talk show

    dontVanek said:Why not change these podcasts into a stream on Twitch? Kind of like a Talk showI would prefer something like the old concept of Invisible Walls from Gametrailers. http://youtu.be/tDiFuk3Cy1w

    But I guess that would mean a lot of editorial work.

    Nice, looking forward to listening. Enjoyed the last podcast & even played a few of the games because of it that I would not have played otherwise. Thank you!

    Is there a reason that these podcasts arent accessible to windows phone? LOL
    Seriously we have an XBOX one app, XBOX customer support tells people to come to TA for game support but we DONT have Microsoft store permissions for the podcast? WTF?

    I like the podcast and wanted to say good work guys, a couple of requests ... if possible ....
    (I haven't listened to this one yet so apologies if these comments aren't relevant to this podcast in particular)

    Could you shorten the intro music? It's usually about 30 seconds before anyone speaks - I can skip forward on my phone but I just don't see the point in such a long intro ... not an issue of course, just a gripe really

    Secondly, not sure how the audio is set up but can you improve the quality/volume equalisation at all?
    Some people are louder than others, Dave for one is a lot quieter than others usually.
    It sounds like all voices are recorded onto a single audio track and so individuals can't be adjusted for this, recording seperate audio may be something to look at in the future?
    Yours sincerely, TG

    I believe they do separate the audio ("double-ender"), but one thing that Rich does is mix the different speakers across the stereo mix. I find that this makes it appear as if one person is quieter than the others too, particularly in the car, as one person is panned all the way over to the far speaker, while the other two are panned middle or at the speaker right next to me as I sit in the car. Of course, if could be audio levels or compression settings too, but just thought I'd share my experience.

    Fair enough, I'm not an audio guy but from limited experience I guessed it was that.
    I personally listen solely on my iPhone but not usually through headphones which probably doesn't help the situation

    Fair enough, it's definitely noticeable in the car though, with road noise etc.
