More Energy!

As an avid AT101 member and lover of all things points, I enjoy this podcast. Understanding things take time, the podcast does feel much more “scripted” with Jeff whereas with Richard, felt much more natural and had a great flow. Hopefully the more natural feeling comes back in the coming weeks!

What happened

This used to be one of the top travel podcasts. The content now is minimal. It feels like it is slowly dying. Something interesting needs to happen.

There use to be some real value in this podcast with Richard. Besides the impression of reading from a script, the podcasts are just not that interesting. There clearly has been a pivot in content direction under new host. Make the podcast about travel and awards, not managing a FB group. Don’t read from a script. Don’t make this miles and pints. You have a captive audience from FB but need to add value here.
