Customer Reviews

Excellent content, lacking in production quality

This is a superb podcast, and it is great to hear Horace discuss his insights into the car industry for a full hour or more rather than having it sit in as one of a range of topics in The Critical Path. The insights from Jim are welcome, as he obviously has a wide ranging knowledge on topics of transportation and knows how to draw the best out of Horace. At present there is no website or anything for the podcast to link to, and I would love if Horace is able to link to this somewhere (twitter/facebook or on your site) to give us access to comments and enable a discussion. There is a lot of really good stuff in the first episode (especially the discussion about Tesla) which I think would contribute to the discussion about the future of transportation. I'm looking forward to hearing more.

The key complaints that I have is the quality of the production. Frequently I can hear typing on a keyboard in the background and a rustling of fabric (is someone wearing a Goretex jacket and moving around? - thats what it sounds like). Further, Jim's voice sounds canned and distant. Given the quality of the discussion it is a pity its let down on these things, and I'd encourage you to invest in better production if this is going to be an ongoing series. Also, I've had multiple errors in trying to download this. Managed to succeed on about the 5th try, and then it was only to my iPhone and not my Mac. Not sure if that is Apple's fault or yours, but it might be worth trying to fix. Otherwise, excellent! Keep it up!

great stuff

Great stuff - I'm interested in the thinking that Horace does. Production values aren't fantastic, but that is irrelevant.
