Great content — too long —> limits listeners

I’m a lawyer who now teaches high school history and social science. The content of your podcast is SOOOOO important! Your subscribers clearly think so, too. I submit to you, however, that your listener base will not grow until you find a way to edit your podcast episodes down to 30 minutes or less. An example: for my summer job, I am writing the curriculum for an online Virtual High School called Peacemaking. Today I am writing a lesson on restorative justice. I want to use Episode 19 - What Justice Could Look Like. Lessons have to be self-contained and have to be engaging enough to keep students’ attention and give them lots of fodder for discussion. Unfortunately, a 1-hour podcast is too long, either online or in the classroom. It is rare that an entire class period is an hour long. Moreover, it’s a challenge for teachers to find time to listen to an hour-long podcast and take notes about want to cut and what to keep. That is the value-add that you can offer. Spend a more time cutting stuff, honing your message and editing accordingly. Get the podcast down to 30 minutes or less. Then, teachers will be far more likely to assign them for homework or use them in class. Believe me, most educators want to share your message. It’s just not practicable to edit each episode ourselves.
