More of this please
Awesome content, want more length per episode
I’ve listened to Dave and Joe on many other podcasts for a while now. As a musician/iOS-app-engineer myself, I love what these guys are doing here. Getting to hear about forming a band through a podcast. I’d like to hear more content per episode. I really like the Serial/Inquisitive-style production of the show with interviews and background music. I don’t really like the Airplane Mode music itself, so I could do without the full song at the end of the episode, but not a deal breaker and I can open my mind to new music once and a while.
Raising the bar for podcasts
The content alone is great, but the editing and production quality of this podcast is stellar. Podcasts with interest topics, but long, poorly edited episodes are a dime a dozen these days. I’m thrilled to have one more to add to the very short list of interested podcasts that are also extremely well edited and put together. Keep up the good work you guys. Can’t wait to hear more.
