Would you skip the interview or repeat it a few times more? Do you still believe that skipping the interview has to do with a lack of interest in the content?

Saying that someone has a dumb opinion for pointing out something that could be improved for an international audience is a bit narrow minded don't you think?
If I listened to a Dutch podcast I would make sure I was fluent in Dutch. I am not so I do not...

I watch German TV sometimes. My German is not great but I don't complain to the German broadcasters that I cannot understand the accent or if their live news broadcasts from the field are not always great quality.

We're all entitled to our opinions I guess.

Dan has also explained how he is dependent on the interviewee's recording equipment.
