Rudo Radio Episode 49: Previewing NXT Takeover: The End

Where we discuss RAW's babysteps toward a brand split as well as preview NXT Takeover: The End

Welcome to the latest episode of Rudo Radio, featuring your new-ish co-host, Nick Bond, as well as me, Marc Normandin, the person writing this post letting you know the newest episode is out.

We're back on Wednesday as promised, and ready to both review Monday Night RAW and preview NXT Takeover: The End, which will air on the WWE Network on Wednesday night at 8 pm eastern.

I have good news and less good news to share, too. The crackling that dominated my audio in last week's episode is no longer dominating the audio. It is present, though, in a more crinkly, less-loud form, and we're still working on figuring out just what the problem is. We tested and tested again (and replaced a cable and changed USB ports and...) before recording and still couldn't eliminate it entirely. If one of you is a secret audio genius, please let us know what we're missing. In the meantime, we'll try to figure it out so you can enjoy us sans-crinkle.
