Change is in the Air … Is it a good thing?

First and foremost, I really enjoyed Dan Gold leading the IABC podcast. He’s a total pro and knows how to produce amazing audio content. While I enjoyed hearing Bonnie’s perspective — she’s a rockstar — I think the new show misses on a few key areas: (1) Peter seemed too scripted and his questions seemed forced. (2) His is audio was subpar.

Moving forward, I hope these two items can be corrected. When it comes to podcasting, audio is king and it is something that cannot be sacrificed.
