Interesting but tends to typical b-school pontificating

These podcasts are well done and informative and take the form of a typical B-school case study type discussion. The "experts" sometimes are not so expert at doing their fact checking though like in the DRM one where the comment is made that Rhapsody is not available on the Mac. Bzz. Wrong. Their choice of topics is more interesting than the Harvard podcast which has many episodes focusing on CEO/Org changes in companies such as Dell.

Love podcast...can’t stand that heavy breathing into the mic

MOVE AWAY FROM THE MIC!

Great content but OMG the breathing?!?

I loved this podcast so much - great content, great guests, very insightful commentary. I would listen to it on my daily commute.

But I had to subscribe recently because of Dan Loney’s whistley-breathing noises.

I tried to ignore it. I really did. For months. I thought, surely the editor knows this is unreasonable? Surely Dan knows he needs to switch off his mic when someone else is speaking? Surely other people find this unacceptable too - they must have gotten comments?

But alas it seems none of those things are true. So, regrettably, I have had to unsubscribe. I will happily resubscribe when either the editor fixes this issue or Dan switches off his mic.
