Thanks for the feedback Toren -- over the past week I've been listening to a bunch of podcasts (including the cephalopodcast -- good stuff there!), and I think I know what I need to do to produce good programs. We've had a few good quality octopodcasts in the past -- it's really a matter of me sitting down and scripting it out a bit more... and then at the end, going back and editing out the "umms" and "you knows". I actually think I'd like to do more of these so I can practice!
I know what you mean about looking forward to them -- I'm finding that now that I've gotten into a bit of a habit of listening to podcasts, I really look forward to hearing new ones.
btw, I definitely would like to have you as a guest sometime soon, to talk about your new album!
