More content, less editing
It seems like you’re trying to sound like NPR. But NPR shows are goofy and somewhat annoying. We just want to hear financial commentary. I suggest turning down the background music (or turning it off) and just do serious, mostly unedited interviews.
excellent informative business podcast
excellent informative business oriented podcast: intelligent: interesting: well produced A Eule also has a fine radio voice
Watch out for personal opinion.
Extremely interesting! However I find the speakers as personally opinionated as they can be when they get the chance, This would be no problem if they would just let the listener know that it’s their opinion, especially if they get the chance to demean President Trump. Please stop making me translate out your personal opinion of what you think other people are saying. Today’s podcast is a great example of what I mean.
