Thanks again for an insightful and entertaining time that I am allowed to share with you.There is always a short idle part of the day I can listen to Ken and Vicki and gather a new piece of information about gardening. Very much appreciated.

Good content marred by poor audio

I'm a fan of Druse's writing, and he has a nice interview style.

However, the poor audio balance and overall very low volume of this podcast makes it very difficult to listen to. I have to boost the volume so high that the next thing on my playlist is shockingly loud. And the sound is very inconsistent within the podcast, too, so "sound check" doesn't solve the problem (if, indeed, it works with podcasts).

Unfortunately, the good content cannot overcome the annoying volume problem -- especially when there are so many other, higher-quality things to listen to.

Great gardening company

I look forward to listening to this informative, intelligent podcast each week as I work in the garden. I've been a fan of Ken Druse's writing and photography for many years, and this venue offers a window on his garden and is a great adjunct to his books, offering a forum for his perspectives and views on subjects ranging from pure horticulture, to artistry in the garden, to current environmental issues. Cohost Vicki Johnson is an accomplished gardener and writer as well, and adds insight as well as occasional counterpoint to ideas expressed by Mr. Druse. I appreciate their providing gardening discourse several levels above that which is available through many call-in gardening shows.
