Good content, clear audio, and very informative!
This is a truly enjoyable, information-packed podcast. Time has the right formula that people are looking for in podcasts, long content-filled, free and most importantly, interesting stories. The 45 minute Google podcast was long enough to last the entire commute home and then I finished it while at home on the computer. It even included real interviews with Google employees in their own voices and included reader questions to Google and the company’s responses. The narrator has a very clear voice. Hopefully they keep up the weekly stories and even add daily stories in the future.
Good content..but what's with the reader?
I don't get it... who is this guy? what's the idea with the uber-dramatic inhalations? is he showing his technical speaking prowess via some kind of "just-in-time breathing" technique? It's laughable! And completely detracts from the content.... I just can't get around it and listen to what he's saying, I keep focusing on the weird intonations and air-sucking. I like the Casey Casem comment by another reviewer - pretty much right on. I keep imagining an ultra-nerdy, bow-tie-sporting announcer with 50's glasses, waving his degree in Really Cool Breathing Approaches, hovering wide-eyed near the mic, ready to be really, really, really excited about whatever he's given to read. any way we can replace him and keep the great content?
Good info, not much thrill.
