Just kind of blah...
I was hoping for more... Definitely a need for this type of show, but the host is rather dull, the pace is slow, and there's not a lot of substance. I am sticking around for awhile to see if it improves.
I listen to about 15 podcasts about podcasting and none do a straightforward report about podcasting news like this one.
I like the hosts bc they sound like regular people and don't sound like hucksters constantly boasting about their 80 years of podcasting experience (a common problem with other podcasts).
One big suggestion: please stick to the podcasting news rather than the history of your twitter handles, stories about your mothers, and other tangents. Listeners will commit to you if you commit to your premise.
Stay focused on the podcasting news and I will stay focused on your great podcast.
Thanks for doing this podcast!
