Great insight...

Love listening to this show... however I think we need to have Ruth Allen and Thom Hetherington on more regularly talking about the Food and Drink scene...

Needs work

Okay, I’m only three minutes in to my first taste of this (episode 51) but I’m really struggling with going any further. A few (constructive) pointers:

1) Sound quality. It’s really bad. Terrible mic which you are continually peaking on so it sounds even worse. Have a look at some YouTube videos on how to do it well. You can get great sound out of a cheap mic if you just follow some basic steps.

2) I’m three minutes in and I’ve heard nothing but waffle. No actual content so far and nothing to keep me listening.

3) The main presenter is the chief exec ( in fact he’s been the only person I’ve heard so far). Now, he may be a great podcaster, and he seems pleasant enough, but sticking the chief exec front and centre immediately makes me think, ‘uh oh, here follows some corporate messaging.’

4) Purdah is a word known only to council officials and journalists. It should not be seen in public, let alone heard.

5) It’s about Manchester - which is why I came here in the first place - why record in an office that could be anywhere? Get outside, let me hear the city.

Anyway, best of luck. There’s clearly a lot of time gone into these episodes, I’m just not sure how many people are actually going to listen any further than I have.
