John Paul White

The discussion with White, regarding the art and craft of the singer/songwriter, is really fascinating. You won’t hear a songwriter deconstruct their creative process, and then perform an acoustic solo like they’re on your porch, that’s better than this.

Production/presentation subpar - content interesting

I really want to like this podcast. The topics certainly are interesting, and the idea to have a mini audio version of the OA - an excellent magazine that I would subscribe to if I didn’t live in Germany - is a good one.

But the production values are just not up to my expectations- at more than an hour for a non-established show, the program far exceeds the time I have to explore a few topics amid a huge array of other offerings. I am sure that Ms. Lewis is a good writer and editor, and she has a nice and warm-sounding voice, but her presentation style is too wooden. Editing the program down to 30-40 minutes would already improve it... and sharpen the edges. And please try to sell the content - opening the show with what it is going to be about (the annual southern music issue, for instance) and a reference to where one can buy it does not pull the listener in.
Bravo for the effort. A long way to go - I might check back in in six or nine months. Sorry to not provide a better review - it is the first time I have written one.
