I'm sorry, but you can never understand what it is like not being a native English speaker.
I understand what Amon_Ra is saying, I also have had to stop watching or listening something at some point after the tenth time of rewinding and still not understanding, and it wasn't because I was in a poor room, or had shitty speakers, it's just has to do with understanding. When you introduce artifaction to the voice, a non-native speaker will have a harder time figuring the language out. This varies with your understanding of English, of course.
So his point is very valid.

I have to say I haven't heard all their podcasts because I'm not really that interested in the matters talked about, but those podcasts I heard sounded pretty good.
