Audio not so good....
I had a hard time listening to this podcast without being distracted by the outdoor entertainment in the area James and Steven were recording this podcast. Plus I felt like the guys need to look at the camera more - eyes were darting to other things. Tried hiding the window and just listening but I stopped after about a minute, sorry.... background singer just was louder than the guys voices. Probably had some gems of knowledge but I wasn't captured right away so I didn't stick around.
What is Twitter?
The guys have a good idea--to share what they know--and they chose good topics. Unfortunately they recorded in places where there was a lot of background noise. The sound quality was bad, so it's very hard to hear what they have to say. I'd like to see them redo this series, but record from a much quieter place.
