    Inb4 you came to complain about the audio being messed up but you didn't read the description first.

    I pay top-dollar for this podcast! How dare you! Oh, wait. None of us pay anything for this podcast. Thanks for doing it...I look forward to it each day. Keep up the good work, and don't worry at all about the occasional hiccup.

    Audio issues aside, good show.

    Audio default is not the only thing, and while some might find it funny, I cannot see the funny side. Default Apps always get changed on each build. Lately the default app to read a *.pdf in Outlook is set back to Legacy Edge, despite it being defunct, and no matter what has been set by the user. To me, Microsoft is becoming a sad reflection of its former greatness and is becoming a joke. How Enterprise Customers keep up with it all is beyond me.

      oh no it's awful, i have to check it each time with every update - sometimes the switches are flipped, other times they are not.

    I just assumed it was the cicadas.

    This happens all of the time for me whenever Nvidia sends out a driver update. My default output always gets bonked and sometimes the mic.

    Curious what that extra background noise that kicks in at the 7:18 mark. Lol

    Is it the fan on the system or home heater/ac ? :)

    In the end, these "pros" are just regular folks like the rest of us, and sometimes fall prey to software update problems that boggle the mind. We laugh along with them when things like this happen. This is one of the best podcasts I listen to all week.
