Varies in quality
I got an email announcing this podcast and was very excited. Then I listened to a few. Most are just articles read out loud. This treatment of a topic makes for a boring podcast. But a couple like (Investing the Gulf's Oil Profits Windfall) are what I expected to hear, thoughtful discussions. I hope that they publish more of these, rather than just read articles.
Suggestion for Improvement
I would suggest listening to a couple of HBR IdeaCasts as a model. HBR has adopted a moderated format whereby the moderator interviews the author on the content of the article. In cases where the author is not available, they have a standin (usually a HBS professor) who "interprets" the article.
Great insight from McKinsey insiders
Exactly the kind of podcast I've been looking for - fantastic insight on an interesting (and important) issue, directly from leaders who work with companies every day. Really valuable to hear from senior McKinsey people - can't wait for more!
