Phenomenal content Delivery can improve
Denver Fredrick asks great questions and steers conversations in a powerful way - his pitch fluctuates and could be metered for a more affective approach. News items often sound like a single sentence without appropriate pauses between items decreasing the import of each piece. The show and Denver could benefit from critique and coaching by radio professionals. Delivery improvement will take this podcast to another level.
Thanks for all the great info.
