(2023) Keep it coming!!!
I’m so thrilled the Podcast is back (tentatively) in 2023! The two “rehearsal” episodes are both informative & entertaining. The audio quality could use some improvement & links to references in the notes, but otherwise it’s exactly what the community needs to revamp interest & engagement. As a bonus, it includes insight/news items I hadn’t seen in any other publications. I love it - keep it coming!!!!
First Podcast episode was great
I hope it continues
Good podcast but comes out infrequently. Prefer topics that resemble the website.
