Has Potential

As a railway industry insider even I walk away enlightened from some of the news and information I pick up on this podcast. It had the potential to be something really good.

There are a few major issue though. First of all the shows need to be edited. On the last episode in Topeka there where periods of dead silence several times, one lasting about three or four minutes after a dropped call. Also the wind was drowning out the already hard to hear voices, for most of the episode. That and due to missed guests the must have spent a good 1 hour plus, filling in with small talk that went around in circles. I also think the need to realize that at perhaps nearly 2 hours an episode is a bit too long, and they just don't have that content to fill it.

So show hosts, please edit and make the shows shorter!!!'
