Podcast Series 2, Episode 4

EDIT: oops scrap the question, the answer was in the podcast. O and the Two A's need a new 3Gs iphone with a compass
Much improved, i wonder if its possible to have some sort of music as you cut to each segment for a second or two, and maybe even some very very low music playing in the back ground, to sort of take a way from the emptiness of the podcast?

Thanks for the thoughts. I totally agree re emptiness, especially when there's only one voice, which is why we try to keep these parts pretty short. There is music under these solo pieces and my introductions - as usual - but I've pulled it back a bit after listener feedback that it was a bit loud. I usually let Beer o'Clock run under it's own steam - the same with the extended discussions/interviews.
Do you think we should have a soundbed under those too? I thought it might get a bit annoying after a few minutes.

And you can choose your own music ;-)

I like the old podcast format. I would listen to it while I did the dishes, in the car, whilst walking the dog and it always felt the same - like I was listening to a conversation about mac stuff. The podcasters weren't always clear or concise but it felt like a conversation with passionate mac people.
The current format feels sterile. I don't find it informative or enjoyable to listen to. I have listened to the first 4 episodes of series 2 and nothing has happened to change my mind.
Maybe I am in the minority.
Maybe Matthew's voice had grown on me and I miss it -
I am not sure.
But I do miss the old style of podcast.
