Pay more attention to production values!

You know, I've been listening to this podcast off and on for years, and here's the problem: you often cannot tell when one story has ended and a new one begins. I find this happening about once every two or three episodes. That's a lot. The production team needs to put some sort of sound cue, if not an actual pause, between stories! I am often still processing the last story for the first one or two paragraphs of a new one before I even realized we have changed topics! It sounds to me as though there was a lot of last-minute editing because the reader doesn't even round out his final sentence with any of the normal vocal cues that a point has been reached and made. if this is so, and edits must be made after the narrator has finished working, then the times definitely needs to develop a chime or a beep, something to let you know that we've moved on to a new story.
