Sorry for the double-post. I'd remove it if I could, but Usenet being
what it is, well...
There's no problem double plugging a great podcast!
ps. same poster every 2 months ;-)
From <40 minutes to >1h40, it is not the same stuff. The question is:
why? More news? More text?
The question is: I want to listen to your pocast because it contains
all of the info but I need to find a big period of free time or...
could you divide it into two parts, every 15 days?
Thanks for the feedback! It's true that the episodes have gotten
longer, both because we added a segment (Retroviews) and because Mike
and I are getting more comfortable with the recording process and thus
tend to be more talkative. We feel that 100 minutes to last an entire
month is reasonable; we certainly don't expect anyone to sit down and

I think I've probably talked too fast. It is not that you talk too
much but as 1/ there are so much things to say and as 2/, Mike and
you, are confortable and 3/ I am impatient to listen to an entire
episode in one row, I think I have to find ways to divide my
Using segments is a good thing and I'll do that.

No, don't misunderstand my wording. Don't cut contents, just teach
some listeners (me) how to listen to a podcast :-)

All sections are interesting.
I thank you again for your answer and I believe the right thing to do
is that I sit comfortable in a chair and relax, listening to a segment
of your podcast.
