Great content, appalling sound quality

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The episodes are encoded at 64Kbits, making the audio quality unbelievably bad. The previews on Amazon's page are pristene, so why deliver such lo-fi copies for the actual downloads?

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Irritation at a great series being treated so poorly.

Karl's views

Karl Pilkington is the funniest man on earth. His view of our world and his insect fetish make me laugh so much I should listen to this in the loo.
