So we're immature. Wanna make somethin' of it?

Hello Dieters
Thank you for bearing with us these last few weeks. We think we have figured out the sound issues and it will just keep improving. This week we have a few crackles, next week will be better as we returned the bad mic for a good one.
We would like to thank Bams husband, the Chief, for all his help with sound quality.
Bams and Coggie are a bit all over the place this episode. We recorded once, and the sound quality was BAD, really BAD! So we popped a hard cider and recorded the second show. Now you can tell them if they should drink... or not during podcasting…

Thank you everyone for your comments on the podcast, we had 30 names in the drawing.
