Deep phone conference

The podcast is a recording of an academically-oriented conference call series. Format allows an acknowledged expert an introduction to the topic of about 15-20 minutes, and rest is Q&A from academics around the USA. For what it is, it’s really good. However the format limits the overall depth and sometimes leads the discussion astray. I would love to have heard more from the expert on the topic, if only for keeping the flow better organized. IMHO, a shorter Q&A or requirement to pre-submit questions that the expert could choose from would make this an even better experience.
