Episode #151 features a look at the latest Star Wars video game announcements and updates, some headscratching re: no Mandalorian season two trailer yet, Ryan’s highlights from the recent Force Fest, and more.

That being said, it sounds ok and shouldn’t be a big deal unless pro audio is important to your podcast listening.
