Great Idea, bad production values...

just a few comments... 1) get some better equipment... i had to stop listening to the latest episode because i literally couldn't understand the words you guys were saying... 2) Shorten up the reviews of the book... it gets really boring listening to someone read a book review. Post it on a site somewhere and point us to it... 3) don't be afraid to interrupt your guests and pose some more interesting questions... even stuff that might make them uncomfortable... anyway, i'll keep checking back for new episodes... btw: do you guys have a website?

It just doesn't get any better...

Holy smokes. The Duane Swierczynski interview is legit entertaining, and the Charles Ardai interview is outstanding. In fact, that's an understatement. It's a Masterclass on the hardboiled genre and a wonderful peek behind the Hard Case Crime curtain. You're not going to find another podcast like this anywhere. Keep up the great work guys...

This is a Great Podcast for Crime Fiction Lovers

If you enjoy crime fiction, especially of the hardboiled variety, then this podcast is for you. It provides informative interviews with some of the best writers in the genre. The interviewer is knowledgable and superb, and the introductions to each interview are superbly written. This podcast has introduced me to a lot of new authors. The production values are great, and this is professionally done show all around. Listen and enjoy.
