Great creative content
Love the content, fun topics, with deep dives while still keeping it short enough to listen to on my commute.
Please stop breathing into the microphone.
It was hard to listen to the speakers over the breathing of the moderator.
I can read a script myself
The topics and guests are relevant and interesting but the format is completely scripted. It sounds like I’m being read to and the interviewer does not ask follow up questions, but rather jumps to the next question as if the interview is timed. I appreciate considerations for my time but that is not what draws people to podcast. I would listen to a podcast that’s double the amount of time if it sounded like a real conversation.
