Love your podcasts Liz.

I drive for a living, so all though I’m only on episode 63, give me about a month and I’ll be caught up.

I listen to several podcasts and you might be my favorite

Good content, poor delivery

Hi Liz - Your show is good but could be great if you changed your style a bit. Please please please STOP reading your questions to the people you are interviewing from a piece of paper and try to engage them in conversation. That is what makes a good interview. For inspiration, check out Melvyn Bragg’s style on his history podcast on the BBC. Just constructive criticism.
