Quality of Interviews not Up to Snuff
I’ve gotten used to the high quality questions and thoughtfulness of hosts on Bloomberg for shows like Oddlots; these hosts just don’t seem as prepared as they could be.

Hosts perpetuate financial “bro” culture
In multiple episodes hosts have had a lack of respect for their guests, treated women differently in their on air remarks, and reflect an air of entitlement or certainty while discussing episode topics without providing reasoning on why they should be seen as ‘experts’.

Audio quality is bad
Good content but you can’t hear the call-in guests.

Needs Better Audio Quality
The content is outstanding - really good insights from people who know better. But the audio levels have GOT to get fixed. I can barely hear the guests, the hosts’ volume varies between segments, and some commercials are twice as loud as the content. It shouldn’t take this much work to listen.

Please fix audio
I love the content, but as other listeners have mentioned the audio quality makes it almost unlistenable. I’ve never run across another Bloomberg podcast with such terrible audio.

Content is Great but Audio Quality is NOT
I’ve been listening to this podcast for a few months now and have been really enjoying the content. However, the audio quality, mixing, and volume changes make this podcast almost unbearable to listen to. Whether the issue is interviewers breathing into their microphones, the gain level turned all the way up on the microphones, poor audio quality from interviewees, volume level of ads being far higher than the interviews, etc. the list of audio issues with this podcast is endless. I find myself getting distracted by an audio issue in nearly every single episode. Seems like an easy fix to hire a sound engineer or to fire your existing one, and Bloomberg should certainly have the resources... it’s too bad because this is otherwise a solid podcast.

Horrible sound quality
Horrible sound quality + constant ads at 2x volume. Not worth it

ads ruin it
The ads (especially the harsh PGIM ones) ruin it. The actual content is good.

Speculative Trash
Anything Bloomberg is toxic corrupt trash.

Great if I could hear the interviews
The thoughts and comments are great but the sound quality of the interviews are terrible!! I am ready to stop following this podcast as it’s a waste of my time to listen to a one sided interview!! Please spend some money and upgrade your sound equipment!!

Ads are 2x the volume
The ads literally blow out my eardrums when I’m wearing earbuds. If I turn down the volume, I can’t hear the regular programming. Awful.

Keyboard noise
Background noise of someone typing on their keyboard is driving every listener crazy.

Used to be a good podcast
It used to be a pleasure to listen to this podcast and the conversations were constructive and relevant. Since sometime early 2021. The new host Matt Miller just made it kind of insufferable. His questions to the guest almost always steer the conversation towards some kind of muscle cars/motorcycles topics, or penetrating false stereotypes of nationalities, regionalities, ethnicities. There’s also misinformation that was passed along in interviews as facts. The overall persona of the new host screams a privileged older white male which really gear towards a much more conservative audience than the previous editions of the show. Really odd since Bloomberg in generally is pushing towards a centrist platform with some progressive vision in terms of racial equality, environment and diversity.

Voice quality isn’t good
The voice quality of the people being interviewed is sometimes terrible. Maybe some software can be used to improve it? On April 12th, it was almost impossible to understand what a person talking about Peloton said.

Typing
Stop typing over guests. Absurd

Finally She is Gone!!!
I used to listen to this show regularly up until a year ago, when I came to the conclusion that life is too short to submit myself to the banality of Vonnie Quinn. The content of the show is excellent, as are the current presenters, and it’s great to be able to enjoy this product again.

Please let the guests speak
The new host is extremely pretentious for someone who has so little knowledge in finance or economics. We get it you live in Europe and drive a 911, but we tune in to hear about the thoughts and comments of your guests, please leave some time for them

Awful New Host
Who is this awful new host (listening on 3/12/21) with stupid arguments with “alternate facts” —-75 million dead in WWII??? And No knowledge of inflation rates or economics. And if I want “alternate facts” (which I don’t ) I would listen to Fox not Bloomberg. Thankfully you had an informed and intelligent guest who diplomatically corrected your ignorant host. Let this new host go work for Trump and please get back to intelligent informed discussions on your show. Thank you.

Poorly hosted; save yourself & listen to a different pod
The audio is terrible quality. You can hear constant mouse-clicking, typing, heavy breathing/sighing, etc. throughout. Paul and vonnie [vonnie is no longer hosting evidently (she disappeared from the pod)] interrupt all the guests to interject with their own uninteresting, unrelated life stories; along with reminding the guest that we’ve “got 5 seconds left”. Blah. Additionally- the content (when actually discussed) is aggregately worthless. I appreciate the effort. But, in my opinion, this podcast is a complete waste of time.

Bring back Vonnie
I miss Vonnie Quinn! This new guy needs to stop talking about himself, he’s not that interesting. And we get it, you live in Berlin!

How many times the will change the host
I really enjoy this podcast, but unfortunately is very difficult to keep listening when the voices keep changing every week or two. I don’t understand why they change host like that, and without telling the audience about. Like we can’t tell the difference. Is fine if you have a lot of rotations hosts, but disclosed please. I look like the production don’t care about who’s listening.

Suspect reporting
I enjoy the podcast but they botched the WSB/GME/Silver story. Blatant lies or lazy journalism.

Better without Quinn
I used to love this podcast, until Quinn joined on it. Always rude to guests and always putting her opinion into loaded questions. Bring Lisa back, because I’m out. ....unsunscribe

Interviewing needs improvement
I enjoy the podcast, however a majority of their interviews end abruptly and feels rude

Can’t stand Bonnie
Love most Bloomberg podcasts as they had god questions and are impartial. Bonnie, the host of this podcast is horrible. If a guest has a different view of the world than her she cuts the off and belittles them. Can Bonnie and I’ll resubcribe.

Bring Back Pimm Fox
This is another example of a privileged white person getting a position in which they are no way qualified for. Vonnie Quinn’s interviewing skills are horrible. I do enjoy the topics being discussed and the expert guests.

Missing podcasts
Enjoy the podcast very much but no episodes available since 8/21/20. Looking further online it appears the shows are happening just not getting uploaded to iTunes for some reason. Let’s get it going again Bloomberg!

No more updates?
I enjoy the podcast but it has not updated since August 21. Why?

The Tape — catchy new podcast title
Pail and Vonnie add context and ask thoughtful questions prompting guests to give deeper expert insights.

Just bad
They awkwardly cut off guests and Vonnie Quinn cannot speak only complete sentences. Rough.

Bloomberg is full of anti-Trump hype and hysteria
If Bloomberg fired all of their anti-trump reporters and writers, they could just post DNC and CCP/PRC press releases, save lots of money and make bigger profits for Michael. And how can you seriously say that New York managed the virus well. I’ve heard that lie twice on your program. New York’s Covid handling was an example of horrible leadership from your governor and mayor. Just look at the statistics of how many people were infected and died in New York, far more deaths than any other state, including states with bigger populations. Job well done Bloomberg. Get a clue. The rest of the country doesn’t believe your NYC liberal lies and fake news.

Sound equalizer
I love almost all Bloomberg podcast. But only I don't like it and sometimes I have to stop to listening is sound level. All contents and host and guest are doing great job. However, sound effect is awfully bad. I really think even high school radio club could do a better job of sound level equalizer. There is big gap of sound level of host and music and commercial are all too loud compare with poorly small sound volume of the guest. Please adjust the sound level.

Editor Emeritus
You are meant to be the news but have an absolutely one sided view with thus interview. Fine if it’s a random joe. But to have someone with this stature is an integrity destroying. You too could be the next MSNBC. Boo

Editing
Love the podcast but the editing is awful. Don’t play random music between every speaker - structure the podcast so we know who is speaking and when, and make sure the volume differentials aren’t so drastic. Have a real start and end to the podcast.

Stop cutting speakers off.
I enjoy this podcast but it really bothers me that they seem to always rush the guest speakers and most of the time they end up cutting them off mid-sentence. I wouldn’t mind if the podcast was extended in time and I’m sure others will still listen if it did.

Back away from the microphone
This is a good podcast but please back up from the microphone! Nobody wants to hear you breathing through your nose the entire podcast

Superb
Great to hear journalistic excellence without quotidian political bias so common in other US media. Superb presentational skills in the lost art of USA audio communication. For me an exemplary service in civic responsibility.

Love the show, Lisa and Paul are awesome. However, sometimes Lisa abruptly interrupts the guests when they are speaking and that can be kind of frustrating as a listener. That would be my only negative feedback.

Ms. Abramowicz makes me not want to listen
Ms. Abramowicz please stop making grunting noises while your guests speak. Also can you make your comments concise. It is very frustrating when you tell you guest they a minute and you go on with your dribble for 2 minutes. Thanks

Biased reporting at best.
Littered with real facts and statistics you’ll find bias on par with Michael Bloomberg’s political leanings. The hosts never do any real reporting, just push political stories of the day and have guests that are never challenged and allowed to spread false information.

Audio volume is too low
It is very hard to listen during driving.

Just stop it.

Pimm Fox is Great, his co-host is too political
Pimm Fox is great, as he's always been. Whether he knows the topic or not, he consistently asks insightful question. Pimm's co-host, Lisa, expresses too many political opinions in me. If it weren't for the fact, Lisa alienates me with her bias, I'd give the podcast 4.5stars.

Great quick take on different market issues and policy topics.

Advice To Bloomberg
Get an editor and bring back Pimm Foxx. The current format is unlistenble and it's a shame. This used to the best podcast for maket insight.
