Because of your podcast I feel like I know the 411 with Central Florida. I am very informed.
Improve on it!
Keep it as local as possible with relevant topic selection that affects locals. Stay away from big national themes and topics (GOT? Why?)since there are other podcasts for that!
I really enjoyed the 2 perspectives on the school safety podcast. A very interesting listen that has some pratical suggestions on how to keep kids safe.
