    Lots of long pauses that were somewhat confusing. There was no real introduction letting me know what to expect. I typically would have bailed after about 10 seconds.

    Opinion
    Number one, the people that support you on Patreon are called patrons. They're not called Patreons.

    I'm going to give you a bonus tip in Apple podcasts your website is linked to your spreaker website.

    Everything we just heard is a great conversation to have before you press record. Get it ready and then go live.  I heard one of the hosts interviewed on another show and they said you like to set a limiter to minus two and then turn the gain up. Picture the limiter as a brick wall.  The more you crank that gain, it's like how hard are you going to hit the brick wall? Eventually that will just destroy whatever hits the brick wall because you send it at the brick wall 100 miles an hour.

    The best thing you can do is to record at a decent level.

    The beginning doesn't have to be a big production thing. You can just say, This show is brought to you by our patrons." Then get rid of

    The female host is way too far away from the microphone. It's literally just mic technique. Point your microphone at the corner of your mouth, get about three fingers away and stay there.

    At the intro of the show instead of the guy who we can't hear,  why not explain what the show is about?

    There are book editors. There are many magazine editors. There are television editors. There are movie editors. There are newspaper editors. You get the idea. Why you feel you are everything out of your mouth is gold is a bit confusing. 95% of the beginning of your show needs to go on the editing floor. It was a good conversation to have before you pressed broadcast. If you're going live you should have a clear idea of what you're going to talk about. You don't want to "wing it" in front of people. The more planning, the less editing. The less planning, then more editing.

    You mention your patrons. If you want people to give you money, you need to deliver value. You need to honor their time.

    If the goal of the show is to have fun with your friends, then you're successful. Enjoy your friends. Enjoy those relationships. Just realize that not every conversation needs to be syndicated to all ends of the earth.

    Opinion
    I love how this starts off explaining who the show is for, rolls into an attention setting fact (1000 books published when your book is launched) and you have a cool shortlist to help you avoid the pitfalls so I know exactly what I'm getting into. You drop some street cred on being the longest-running show and we are right into the content. The bottom line is when I pressed stop, I wanted to keep going. This show also show there was some thought put into this. You're doing a great job of talking to one person, but if you're reading this, it didn't sound like it.

    Description

    Why settle for anything less than the life that you dreamed of? Each week, Minneapolis based Drag Queen, Lala Luzious, delivers a "Snack Size," 10-minute episode packed full of advice on how YOU can live a happy and fulfilled life. If you are not afraid of your own potential, this fabulous podcast is for you!
    Lets keep the conversation going! Send me an email at lala@snacksizepodcast.com


    Website

    Opinion

    I'm a middle-aged white guy living in Ohio, so I don't have a lot of exposure to the drag scene. I liked this show



    The opening lets me know what the show is about 
    You shared a story about your favorite movie, and how it ties in with the theme of the show.
    Your commercial was short, and fit your audience. 
    The space is awesome - no fluff, no weather talk, right to the content. - Love it. 


    Things You Could Improve On

    Your episode titles have the name of the show (not needed) and the phrase "Episode xxx" also not needed, but if you MUST put in episode numbers, put them at the end as you're cutting off the important words. 

    When I went to your website you had no show notes for episode 2. There was no link to the movie your mentioned or your sponsor. 
    The Anchor website is, well, you got what you paid for. Check out Podpage or Podcastpage as these make it super easy to put in your RSS feed, and it spits out a great looking, easy to use website. 
    Think of your target audience. What are they going to type into a search field to find a show about Drag Queens? While Snack Size may have a following in the twin cities, that may not be the case across the world (yet). Instead of Snack Size: the podcast what about "snack size: Short Advice from a Drag Queen" you need your keywords in your title. 
    Thanks for your order.

    Slovak/Welsh youtube family living a dream life in Spain. This podcast is about everything and anything that relates to Spain, travel, and life in general. Let's see where it takes us.

    Opinion
    This is kind of a catch 22. It's about your life, but you're locked in doors (so you life is somewhat boring). I was interested to hear about COVID life in Spain, but also was somewhat "Ugh, more COVID talk." You spent a fair amount of time apologizing for the previous show (just go fix it and replace the audio) and get to the good stuff. I also wonder if you feel like people know you already from YouTube. Speaking of that, your website in Speaker is set to your Spreake website (not you gowilgeese.com). You did start off with "Hey Guys" and that is group speak. talk to one person. So this was a "I don't hate it, but it didn't really reach out and grab me," kind of situation.

    Opinion
    While it's nice you're getting together to hang out with your friend. I'm here to say you don't have to record it and publish it for the world to hear. I found zero value in the first few minutes. Your audio levels are horrible, and the conversation you had was a good conversation to have BEFORE you press record. This is only episode three, and you can only go up from here. Anchor is a horrible platform for making the entry-level so low.

Awesome show

Being a drag queen, I have a thicker skin than most, so I really appreciate the honestly in Dave’s feedback. I also enjoy hearing little samples of podcasts and have found some I want to listen to! This is a 5-star show
