A 2 minute podcast...really?
Why not just make the podcast available as a whole instead of each individual clip? Or at least separate it by hours like The Men's Room podcast from KISW. It's a 4 hour radio show and separated into only 4 pieces daily. I would end my subscription with them if they listed each 2-7 minute clip of each and every topic. I hope you consider that.
bring back normal podcast episodes please
picking and choosing through 3 min segments is not user friendly.
I loved listening to Weekday and was looking forward to subscribing to the Record. But when I saw that I had to download so many 2 or 3- minute podcasts, I decided against it. Please issue just one or two podcasts for each program.
