in terms of the GoG podcast, that was just terrible

you might have five minutes to get me interested

but they just spent the first five minutes blabbering on about nothing

I was done right there, but I skipped ahead a bit, and just sounded the same all the way through

I'm not going to listen to you babble on aimlessly for two hours or whatever

you need to get right to the point, what is the point, why would I care ?

and you need a radio voice, you can't be umming & ahing in people's ears on radio

I can't even get to giving you an opinion on the ideas in the podcast

because I didn't know what the idea was in the introduction

and the production was so bad, I didn't stick around to find out

that needs a lot of work, that is not a polished product, I couldn't even stand listening to it

I don't know computers, but I know lectures, interviews & command voice

you need to work on all three

before you go to a ninety minute talk, get your shit together

big rambling topics, you're not ready for that

smaller topics, shorter talks, much more focused, get to the points, and get a command voice

I'm a music guy, I listen to music all day, if I got to stop to listen to you talk, it better be good

if you don't have me interested in the first two minutes, I'm out

meanwhile you spent first few minutes talking about nothing, just blathering

umm, ah, blah blah, umm, ah, blah blah, we're going to talk about something blah blah

you gotta come out of the gate with the most engaging point you have, right away

you need to get peoples attention right away, or we are turning the dial, bro

this is show business, nobody fucking cares unless you make them care

you need a hook, something to state your case in one or two sentences

the greatest empire in history was not founded with grenadiers nor even by a Briton

it was founded by a gay Dutchman with a printing press in a bloodless coup

it was not force of arms but rather liberalization which conquered the world

something like that, something that gets your point across right away

then imeduately do your intro

I'm Master Corporal Smitty (retired ) my guest today is Doctor Martin Hash Esquire

the topic is the Rise & Fall of the British Empire

from the Battle of the Boyne to the the Battle of the Somme

etcetera

now you are in essence giving a lecture, and its on the radio right in people's ears

so you have to get rid of your distracting verbal tics, umms, ahs, and the like

that makes you sound nervous, you don't what you're talking about, you're just blahtering

the trick is to slow down and say less, don't rush and don't fill in gaps with umms & ahs
The song got distorted in the intro that's for sure.

It was a conversation podcast and generally is. I appreciate you didn't enjoy the first 5 minutes.
when it comes through Bose surround sound speakers, it's just jarring

it's like a cacophony, too noisy, like a loud conversation shouted in my ear

my wife came downstairs wondering what the heck that was, it's just off putting

I would recommend slowing & organizing it into something more palatable in the audio paradigm

it's too much chatter, too many verbal tics, you're talking over each other, but not with a radio voice, with a nasally high pitched voice

it's not produced nor directed enough for my tastes

you first need a radio voice, without all the verbal tics, slower, deeper & less nasally

then do a proper structured interview, so you're not both talking at the same time, otherwise it's just a wall of noise : cacophony

if your podcast is annoying to listen to at the production level, don't expect me to hang around for more than five minutes of that

it's like an audiobook, the most important thing is the narration

If I don't like the narration, I don't stick around to find out what happens in the book

Rough critique. Not entirely wrong, but you’re doing something that very few of us would dare to. Keep working at it dude.

Here is my new substack. I will likely have a few podcasts here and there as well. Its a new penname, and I move from the historical to a literary / spiritual focus. Also, I intend on publishing a series of short stories.

I'll cover Milton and Paradise Lost, Dicken's and the Pickwick Papers, Gene Wolfe and his fiction.
