Great radio show; terrible podcast.
This show is utterly maddening. They have edited all of the life out of the show for the podcast. Instead of live performances of songs, you get a frustrating 30 second snippet, followed by a fadeout. I'm assuming it's for copyright reasons, but for whatever reason, it makes for terrible listening. Skip this podcast and try Morning Becomes Eclectic.
Put Everything On HERE!
I think it's great that NPR has put a World Cafe podcast up. I strongly request that they put put all their shows on here. For example Will Hoge, Thursday, April 13th. It was on the world cafe website, why not put all 23:44 of it on to the podcast site.
I'm shocked at how poorly done this podcast is. Cutting the songs down to 30 second samples is just absurd ... I might as well just listen to iTunes samples from the albums. The interviews are moderately interesting, but not enough to make up for the frustration of cutting off the music.
