No value

A few academics patting themselves on the back. No value except the ones in the room. Pathetic self importance. Will go back to Open Yale Courses

American Founders

The introduction of speakers is too long. I know the people are distinguished but it should not take so much time to introduce them. Within the podcasts there are constant referals by the speakers to their respective books without providing the information from the books. I felt like I was listening to an infomercial, not an informative podcast. Only 30% of the podcast was devoted to actual information. The rest was plugging for books and "witty" banter between speakers. I would suggest the speakers and producers listen to Backstory, a podcast from the UVA history department, for an example of a well-produced podcast.

A Different Perspective

I liked the "chat" format, which allowed for personal insights. There was considerable repetition and I started losing interest in the second hour. The speakers are knowledgeable, the voices clear, and the subject worthwhile.
