Glad to see NCF doing podcast
NCF is one of my favorite ministries, period. It is also a hands-down leader in the world of philanthropy, faith based or otherwise. While I'm glad to see NCF doing a podcast, there are a few tweaks I'd love to see to bring it up to a 5-star review (in my opinion).
- have the couple or individual in question be a guest on the podcast, the way NCF's videos do. Always nicer to hear the giver give their own testimony.
- this feels like it's marketed to a regional audience. The two speakers sound like they are middle-aged, white, men (which I am), from the South (which I am not). The tenor and, oftentimes, even the content of the conversation make this a difficult podcast for me to pass along to givers in my region who would be otherwise unfamiliar with NCF. Bottom line, if this is a podcast to strengthen the NCF base, it's a winner. If it's a marketing tool to broaden NCF's audience outside the South, I think it would do well to shape it like the new givers who are listening. "Go where the donors are" and contextualize.
- make it slightly longer, in the 12 to 15 minute range. I thought the three C's were very astute takeaways and would love to hear those unpacked more by the podcast leaders.
