Congratulations TASCAM and Bruce!
I would consider myself an "intermediate" podcaster. As of this review I've released 74 episodes over the course of about 20 months. I was first introduced to TASCAM at PodFest 2017. I'm looking forward to listening to more episodes after having listened to episode one. Great job with this podcast! I am definitely a Fan of Bruce W. and NHTE, and now a TASCAM fan. I think this forum to interact with podcasters is fantastic!
Very Helpful and Interesting
Just listened to the episode called There Will be Mistakes, and loved it! I am new to podcasting and this info is very helpful, plus Bruce presents it in an interesting way. I first saw the TASCAM at Podfest 2017 and was really impressed with it. Will be getting one for myself soon, and will be listening to this podcast for more tips.
