Customer Reviews

Please prepare more

The latest show, on Windows RT devices, is absolutely painful to listen to. Peter stammers and sputters and takes huge pauses to get his words out and it sounds like he's just completely unprepared to talk. The whole thing sounds off the cuff in a bad way. A little more preparation and production would go a long way.

Poor production

I enjoy Ars Technica and the content they provide. In general, Ars provides insightful reporting on all things technology. In my opinion, this podcast has not met these standards of excellence.

Specific complaints:
1. Many words, very little tech content. This probably results from poor planning. These people may be wonderful Ars editors, but they aren't equipped to fluidly produce a high-quality podcast on the fly.
2. Narrow focus. The show reveals very little breadth of opinion related to a given topic. Very likely, this also relates to a lack of proper planning.
3. Unclear structure. When you listen, there's not a clear sense of "where are we going and why?” Again, proper planning.

I support this endeavor. But, coming from Ars, I have high expectations. Keep improving.

equalize volumes

Please equalize the volumes of the speakers in the future. Some people are too difficult to understand. Jacqui has the right volume.
