    What We Liked About the Show
    Dave enjoyed the Emotion Wheel and felt it was something he would look deeper into that topic when the show was over.
    Your voice over guy did a nice single call to action.
    Solid interview style. Very comfortable.
    The questions set him up to give a ton of useful info.
    I like the big “subscribe” button on the home page.
    The intro tells us exactly who the show is for and what it is about.
    I like the category section - easy to binge listen
    What We Thought Could Be Improved
    I would prefer you tell me why YOU are excited to have this person on instead of reading his bio.
    The show doesn't mention authors, and it would help to tie any strategies back to authors.
    Dave felt you repeating what the guest just said was not helpful.
    Remove Google Play from you website and add Google Podcasts and Spotify. (maybe make a subscribe page with directions)
    While there is an "About" for the podcast, We need a paragraph to answer, “Why should I listen to Susan?”
    The call to action would come across better if it came from you.
    The WordPress theme you are on is from a company that went out of business. Check out Second Line Themes (https://supportthisshow.com/secondline).
    The answers were very technical. Get the guest to tell some stories. Engage. Examples.
    Lots of “schedule appointment” buttons. You ask “Need help with book marketing?” Is that the real pain? or is it “get noticed” “sell more books” “become a best seller”?
    “Contact” is just “schedule an appointment” again. Maybe e-mail or phone.

    Paypod​ The Payments and Fintech Podcast

    Paypod​ The Payments and Fintech Podcast

    Today we look at Paypod the payments and fintech podcast (https://www.soarpay.com/podcast/). Here is their description from Apple podcasts:
    Welcome to PayPod, a show that explores the fast-changing world of payments and fintech. The show features interviews with leaders and entrepreneurs in the payments and fintech industries.
    Each episode, you’ll hear an interview directly with a leader of the payments industry. We talk with fintech entrepreneurs, security experts, mobile developers, eCommerce pros, and more...
    From credit card processing to bitcoin... from retail point of sale systems to cutting edge digital payments software… merchant accounts. mobile checkout, lending marketplaces, and beyond… we cover it all!
    What We Liked About the Show
    Once the interview started Scott seemed very relaxed and enjoyed having a conversation with his guest.
    While there was some "Bitcoin Rah Rah" it wasn't 100% a pep rally for bitcoin.
    Great short introduction that gets right to the point
    It was a good discussion about cryptocurrency itself worldwide. You do a good job balancing the discussion of the app with the discussion of the industry overall.
    The courage to cover contrarian views was great, and you did a great job of setting up the guest and then getting out of his way as his passion came through.
    I liked that you attempted to skip the guest's backstory (even though he admittedly went on some tangents).
    The website was clean and does a great job of having a podcast page without distracting from the business.
    Things That Might Need Improved
    You really need to determine who this show is for and talk specifically to that audience. There may be more than one type of listener, but you really need to embrace one.
    Erik thought a bit more on the benefit of the show for the listener. How am I going to benefit?
    Leave yourself a little room at the beginning of that before the discussion starts to demonstrate your authority in this space and what you do and how you help people.
    Not sure what you could do about this, but an Australian only app cuts out a chunk of the world.
    A walk through of the process of the app, what it does, and why I would use it.
    A fair amount of jargon. Depending on who the audience is, you might need to explain some of the terms.
    The guest had mentioned he had authored a book, and you mentioned you would put a link in the show notes (but didn't).
    You did a great job of having a single call to action, but that one call to action wasn't in alignment with your goals. You had stated you wanted more feedback on the topics that interest the audience. If this is the true goal, you need to specify this as your call to action.
    Add some more obvious subscribe buttons (instead of links) in the episodes (it is all about the subscribers).

    Where are They Now? Adam Kinakin From Tactical Breakdown

    Where are They Now? Adam Kinakin From Tactical Breakdown

    Today Dave and Erik touch base with Adam from Tactical Breakdown to see how his podcast is doing since the last time we reviewed (http://podcastreviewshow.com/tactical-breakdown/) his show.
    Adam niched down to his audience, and really focused on his target audience and realized not everyone is his audience.
    Adam has delegated the production work to a company that allows him to focus more on the courses and live events.
    He started and launched an online training program, and now does his podcast full time.
    Adam had questions about creating an Amazon Flash Briefing (and we explain there is a difference between an Amazon Skill, and an Amazon Flash Briefing).
    Adam also has people in his audience and industry to have Adam consult on running their event, and help with their podcast.
    Adam updated his intro based on our suggestions and fixed the audio issues he had in the past.
    Check out Adam at https://www.thebreakdown.ca/ and check out his monthly roundtable for instructors (https://www.thebreakdown.ca/irt) and SMEs

We will be bringing on experts to share information and resources that you can use yourself, another person, or your organization.
    What We Liked
    Great energy. Great guest
    Glad that reminded me who the guest is and why he's there.
    Good job of explaining CCTM might do that more often.
    Nice job of talking to one person most of the time.
    Nice job of teasing “coming up on the podcast” (maybe get more specific).
    Have a good shift – you really know your listener.
    Nice job of staying out of the guest's way, and letting him state his opinion.
    Nice job asking the guest to clarify.
    Nice focused call to action.
    Great resources and easy contact page. The website is easy to navigate.
    What Might Need a Little Polish
    A lot of history of the guest. Do we need all of his backstories?
    Your volume needs adjusting during the intro.
    Have a first question that gets into the content instead of a generic history question.
    Some low hanging ums, but not enough to worry about.
    No way to share episodes.
    If you're using an iframe, those are horrible for SEO.
    White text on a black background can be taxing on the eyes.
    The occasional use of group speak.
    Your newsletter needs more of an incentive.

    Leadership Jam Session

    Leadership Jam Session

    Rob Fonte is the host of the Leadership Jam Session Podcast (http://www.leadershipjamsession.com/), where every other week you'll get to hear leaders at all levels of management share their practical solutions to the management challenges you face every day. On this podcast, Rob shares leadership experiences with listeners by bringing in leaders from all different levels to “Jam” on a variety of leadership topics. Some of the best insights are captured from just listening and learning from each other as they share their experiences. More importantly, we learn to see things through the lens of a different perspective and how to move forward with a different approach. With that concept in mind, the Leadership Jam Session podcast was born. Be sure to stay up to date at leadershipjamsession.com (http://www.leadershipjamsession.com/).
    What We Liked About it

    * Great short introductions and you got right to the content
    * The intro identifies who the show is for and what to expect.
    * Great stories and insights from your guests
    * Great transitions from speaker to speaker and getting everyone involved
    * I liked the occasional summary of what your guests said.
    * You had a great space for guests to be vulnerable and share insights.

    What Might Need Some Polish

    * Do a quick recap of the question when getting others involved.
    * “almost out of time” is a holdover from the radio.
    * Always talk to one person and avoid group speak
    * Work more of who you are and why people should listen.
    * Maybe work the guest's name in more so we know who is talking.
    * Direct people to the website for calls to action.
    * Add a Google Podcasts to the website and update Captivate to show subscribe buttons
    * Position yourself as the expert and do a summary of “what did we learn” to inject YOU into the content.
    * Determine who your true target audience member is and design the content with them in mind.

Love your show!

What a great show and concept in general. I appreciate the thorough analysis of shows and the obvious expertise that is at play. I would love to hear a review on our podcast, “That’s Strange”. (Conspiracies, Controversies and Everything Strange)

Thank you!

CathyCagle ,

What a fantastic asset to podcast owners and producers!

Dave always contributes insightful and appropriate feedback about the strengths and weaknesses of each show they review - and I learn so much from listening! Fantastic way to develop a more critical ear to production values, to hosting, to content, etc. Absolutely invaluable!
