A Great Listen

I’ve recently started listening and I love the variety of information this podcast provides. Lately, I’ve been dealing with the stress of applying for college and reaching for a career in the literary world. The information I’ve learned from 88 Cups of Tea has given me hope that I could make it so for that I’m extremely grateful.

I actually listen to this while researching potential internships near my college choices.

Lovely guests but

I truly love the guests on this podcast, and I appreciate Yin’s hard work, but sometimes this podcast feels too frenetic for me. There are two other writing podcasts that are a little more calm and soothing, and I prefer those.

It's Not You... It's Me

I want to love 88 Cups of Tea. Yin has connected with so many incredible people in publishing, but I often feel like this podcast is more about her than the individuals that are interviewed.

Although the blurb for each episode always sounds amazing, the content is buried beneath 6-7 minutes of advertisements. While this information may be a necessity, I never bother to listen. I wonder if interspersing the 'program notes' throughout the interviews or placing it at the end might be more effective. This is probably personal preference.

In addition, the promised discussions are very brief and often overshadowed by Yin's constant interjections/interruptions. I must admit that I am much more interested in what her guests have to say than her personal experiences. Although the anecdotal exchange may be important to make guests feel comfortable, I think it could be severely edited and even eliminated if it is a story that listeners have heard (many times) before. Again, there seem to be many listeners that enjoy these exchanges. I suppose I just prefer a style of interview where the guest is the primary speaker, allowing them to talk at length and in depth. This, unfortunately, misses the mark for me.
