America’s start-crossed bloggers, The Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin and The Daily Caller’s Mickey Kaus return this week to give their pre and post debate analysis, discuss the continuing problems for the administration in Libya, ponder what a Romney administration might do differently in Syria, bat around Obama as a wartime President, discuss the quandary facing Mickey’s neighbors, hash out whether the jobs report was “cooked,” and — not a moment too soon — go on the record with their election predictions.

    At about 34:00 Jennifer suggests that Mubarak’s exit was “inevitable at some point.”

    The man is what – eighty-two? “Inevitable at some point” sounds about right.

    Please, please, please, balance the audio levels on these podcasts. Witty and insightful conversation with Jennifer’s audio continually overdriven and clipped is painful. It has gotten better the past couple of LC/RC podcasts but please (Blue Yeti? whomever) work on getting the levels right. Some episodes I’ve had to just turn off ’cause the audio levels were so bad — turn up to hear Mickey, turn down to hear a distorted Jennifer. Back off the mic, pot it down, whatever.

  3. This has been a continual problem for this particular show for reasons far too boring to go into (trust me). But I’m aware of it, Jennifer is aware of it, and it will be fixed by the time we do the next show. 

    By the way, not to get too far into how the sausage is made, but we have no ability to control the individual audio levels of the participants. It has to be done from their side, which makes it…challenging at times as it requires a certain amount of technical expertise.

    Yeah, the levels are still off, but credit where it’s due:  Despite the (snarky?) comment made during the podcast about people complaining about them interrupting each other, they clearly were making a conscious effort to try to not step all over each other.  Thanks.
