Description

They prefer verbs over nouns, action over words, and ends over means. But every once in a while Mark Twight, Michael Blevins and Ross McGarvey must tie the loose ends together or cut them off to make a new end. The Dissect podcast is where they do that.

Still looking for it's voice.

I've been a Twight disciple since 2007 and I don't quite know what the guys are going for here - mostly because Blevins keeps hijacking conversations just when they get interesting. Let Paul and Mark dig into and expound on their thoughts for more than 30 seconds and it will 10X the quality of this thing.

Should be titled Good Content

Cool to hear Mark and would love to keep listening to peal back the layers but I don’t think that’ll happen with how much Michael talks. The episode with Brian would’ve been 5x better if he would’ve been able to share more but Michael took up most of the podcast with his stories like he does in most of the podcasts. Nothing against him, I don’t know much about him and I like his perspective but it would be nice if he let guys like Paul or even let Mark talk more.

Has potential . .

I’ve been a fan of Twight’s writing for years, so the podcast was of natural interest to me. I’ve listened to around ten episodes so far and found them to be of varying quality. There is certainly great promise as these are all intelligent, worldly, and insightful people. I want to like it more and I think it can and perhaps will get better. One point I garnered from a person in the podcast (perhaps Michael?) was that he would far more like to hear a criticism/what he could do better, than a trite complement. So, in this spirit I’m going to focus on what I hope to be some “constructive” criticism . . .

At the time of this review, the latest podcast (Episode #27) features Boone Speed. As my interest in the podcast is from the climbing perspective, I was very intrigued to listen to what Speed had to say. However, I stopped at precisely 51:53 where Speed was in the middle of making a fairly serious, interesting, and somewhat protracted point. After being talked over by Twight--at 51:45--with sort of a “joke,” Speed was completely cut off, through interruption by the other host, his point left to dangle, incomplete.

I get that these shows are perhaps set up more as casual discussions among friends than formal interviews but in this case at least I found that, due to Speed’s perhaps more “serious” outlook and slower cadence of delivery, he was being lost and even ignored in the social mix. As the show’s “guest,” I think this is an error.

I am of course interested in what Twight, et al, have to say. However, because they are present every episode, the listener is sure to get her fair share of their perspective. I think that the guest should be given more of an opportunity and platform to express their own personalities and standpoints. I wanted to learn more about Boone Speed and after almost an hour in, I felt like it was a struggle to do so. I don’t think this should be the case. Perhaps a tad bit more formality would not hurt this podcast? Questions and responses, and most importantly, creating more of a space for the guest to respond to said questions. Each new episode, I am mostly interested in what the new guest will have to say. The “banter among friends” aspect of this podcasts is not always one of its stronger aspects, and can grow to be a rather tedious listen at times, especially when it wears on and at the expense of exposure to the guest's views.

Maybe the Episode #27 got better, but I sort of had to stop listening because I felt it was a bit painful to continue. I recognize this is highly subjective, but I just really want this to be better, and it think improvement would be fairly simple.

This type of scenario didn’t seem to play out with other some guests for various reasons, but it was a shame that it did in the case of this one.
