Reverb/Echo when recording streaming audio with Blackhole

I recorded some music and audiobooks from a streaming service on the web on my MacBook M1 Pro with Ventura OS using Audacity 3.4.2 and Blackhole. I get an awful reverb whether I record in mono or stereo. I tried playing back in audacity and exporting to mp3 and listening through headphones and the reverb is in the recorded file. What am I doing wrong? Under audio setup for recording device, I selected BlackHole 2ch, same setting under input sound. Under transport options I set it to Enable audible input monitoring. Any help I’d appreciate. Thanks.

I’m a Windows guy and I don’t know about Blackhole, but…

Disable that!

You are listening to what you’re recording and recording what you’re listening to, creating an internal feedback loop.
