Customer Reviews

Lots of fun

They have some great dramatizations. I especially loved groundwork. That was a fun mystery and well done. Nice short stories for when you need some quick entertainment.

Love the Writing, the reading is so-so

I’m loving this podcast; but it doesn’t sound so good.
It’s very hard to figure out who is speaking, when the readers don’t change the inflection of their voice.
I’m hoping they will get some voice actors to really dazzle as listeners.
I mean, come on, this is Ellery Queen, a very highly regarded, well known venue for mystery writing. I believe the reading should step up to the level of the reputation, and the quality of Ellery queen.
But I also am willing to put my money where my mouth is, I will go to the website to see if there is a way to donate a few dollars a month. If there is I will do that, so as to help this podcast get to the level that seems right for such an illustrious magazine.

Glad it exists BUT needs improvement

I was so happy to find this podcast because I've been a long time fan/reader/subscriber of EQMM. However, every time I listen to it I am bothered by what a terrible missed opportunity it feels like. I don't intend any of what follows to sound mean or as a personal attack on anyone. I understand and appreciate the work that goes into it, but it has room for some serious improvement. Luckily, the technology & knowledge needed to improve it is cheap & accessible if the producers want to search it out.
As it is now, the production quality is very poor. It sounds like it's not mastered at all. The levels are sporadic, I alternate between being unable to hear the dialogue & being deafened. Janet's delivery is robotic. Most of the authors/readers don't have radio voices either. This is not a suburban book club, why do the authors have to be the ones to read their stories? This is the podcast representing an amazing, storied brand. It would be so fun to listen to if there could be some solid vocals. Authors, don't you want your words getting the best treatment possible & best chance for success out there in the world? Then it's ok not to read them yourselves. You're brilliant authors, not professional voice actors. Is money an issue? Maybe some aspiring acting students could help you out for the experience/exposure? It could be a win-win for everyone :)
Also, it would be great if the episode descriptions could include more info on the substance of the stories. They currently tend to include only info about the authors, leaving you guessing what the story will be about based on the title alone.
To sum up, podcasts could be a great way to bring new fans to EQMM (that's why most brands bother to have podcasts at all), but this one feels like an afterthought that only diehard fans can tolerate. Please make this podcast worthy of the EQMM name, it will make it accessible to so many more listeners. I'm begging you!
