Important conversations

Audio is poor. Guests are excellent so far. I’m sick of Black’s are Marxist comments.
How about trying something a little more relevant to today Conservatives?

It’s a start...

The concept of this podcast is a brilliant way of giving voice to issues and concerns of black people and situations. The guests and subject matter thus far have been solid, but the host of the show is a novice with interviewing and holding the listener’s attention. It would possibly help if she spent time prepping by researching her guests, writing a series of questions for each guest, and practicing her delivery. The focus should be on the subject matter and not her rambling through long-winded statements and lead to vague questions.

Music and sound design will also enhance the show to give it a fuller and more professional sound.
