Really like what's going on in this podcast. Greg and Shelly are great together, and the podcast really shine when they invite writers and designers to 'tell their story' (Ed Greenwood's interview was REALLY good).
One thing I would try to 'fix' is the audio levels. Sometimes the interview is 'whispered', as if the speaker is afraid to talk out loud, and I need to increase my volume and then lower it quickly when someone decides to 'speak up' again. It's a podcat! Speak loud! we want to hear and understand clearly! (also, I assume many listeners are not native english speakers, so it's even more important to be heard clearly).
Lore of the Realms section is very interesting, would love a 'News of the Realms' section, a quick summary of what happened this week in the realms...maybe presented by Ed...he is VERY good at delivering through this medium :-)
Thumbs up and keep up the good job!
