Customer Reviews

Decent tech podcast

This comes out of the Andreessen Horowitz VC firm and tends to cover timely tech trends. Some of the analysts are excellent and worth following. The episodes appear at random intervals and are usually very short, often under 20 minutes. The podcast has the unfortunate tendency to end cold, leaving the listener wondering what happened, and it gives the podcast a non-professional, ADD feel. It would be nice if they bundled these up into longer weekly shows with a preamble describing the topic and speakers and adding an ending as a UX features. Then publish them at a somewhat regular interval so listeners can fit them into their schedules. Despite that, this is worth checking out if you are following the tech scene.

Great topics, but audio processing makes it unlistenable

This podcast covers a range of topics usually connected with the tech world. Unfortunately, they can't resist processing the life out of the audio by cutting silent gaps and accelerating the audio. It sounds like a Micro Machines commercial. Please release an unprocessed version of the podcast.

Great content, but let us decide the talking speed

The topics explored by the podcast are far-reaching and touch on tough questions facing society today. But for such sophisticated content, it is puzzling and annoying for the creators of the podcast to have the talking speed doubled in all their podcasts. It would seem ethical and correct to allow the listener to decide the speed of the podcast, rather than the other way around.

I understand the hurdle of keeping podcasts short but from what I understand, the hurdle to elongate podcasts is only of time and hubris.

Please allow us to listen to your podcast at regular speed if we choose to. I don’t like deciphering sentences that are being run over one another.
