Some thoughts on your presentation: it's very strange that the copy of the podcast is here in your blog. I don't have to listen to it now. Shouldn't you be trying to get people to listen? Just wondering.

Also, it would be really interesting to get more in-depth content/interviews with people on the podcast that one can't get in the paper. That would be more interesting to me than just a review of the headlines.

(I really like that you're doing a podcast, but I have some questions about your website, see my blog entry today if you're curious. www.redinked.com)
