Most informative podcast on AT

I do like this podcast a lot. Occasionally Robert will re-broadcast an Alexander technique related interview that he didn’t conduct because he found it would benefit the listener.

I do desperately wish for one thing though. The recording equipment used is subpar because compared to other top 50 podcasts I listen to, I hear a buzz from the microphone Robert uses to record in on pretty much every episode.

Also, for the sake of exposing Alexander technique a bit more to a wider audience, getting the word out on others’ AT workshops, whether residential or one day long, would be great. I attended a fantastic one in Malibu in late December. I think this would have been a perfect opportunity for Robert to interview one or many of those teachers.

These podcasts are wonderful! It's SO refreshing to hear intelligent discussions about the Alexander Technique. I think they are must listening for Alexander teachers and students - and they are a great way for others to learn about this amazing method. I can't wait till the next episode - thanks for doing this Robert!
