Entertaining for some

I heard one episode as a sample. The topic was very well researched and produced. The story was well told. I felt the voice format is based on reiterating over and over the same idea with a seemingly casual conversation, perhaps to make it memorable, but at the end it feels like a 5 minute story was told in 0 minutes. I ain’t got time for that.

Bethenny Inteview

So disappointing. I was excited to listen to the interview with Bethenny Frankel and with it being only 30 mins, the interviewer had a short window to have Bethenny convey to the audience her success in business. Instead, 20 mins of the show was spent on the reality shows she appeared on. I understand touching on that but I wanted to know the nitty gritty of what made her a true success! As a fellow entrepreneur, I wanted to be left inspired and motivated and have a relatable sense with her. Instead, the whole interview was a huge flop... not on Bethenny’s fault but the interviewer and producers.

High School radio

I really want to like this podcast. They get some good guests I really want to hear about. But the interviewer. The questions are like what a high school freshman media class would ask. There’s little back and forth. It’s like you can see him holding up a notecard and moving his finger along the words reading the questions his mom wrote down the night before. It’s awkward.
