Customer Reviews

What is this supposed to be?

Not what is advertised. One slow story after the other and none really about podcasts, strangely. Great idea but this doesn't deliver.

Great recommendations and interviews with podcasters

I love listening to podcasts when I can but there are so many out there that I usually go by recommendations rather than just trying out whatever's on iTunes. This show provided some great recommendations and had really interesting interviews with podcast creators.

Great way to be entertained while...

...getting introduced to new podcasts. So much better than having to rely on the iTunes rankings...
