  1. Hi Aaron,

    It's your anonymous commentator again. I enjoyed your podcast. Glad it was cleaner this time. A couple of suggestions. I know you want to pimp your friends, but you have nearly 10 minutes of plugs in a 49 minute podcast. The first 5 minutes alone is your intro and then several plugs before you get to the actual podcast content. Limit your plugs to no more than two or three spread over the podcast. I would say put them at the end, but if you do that then more than likely few people will listen to them. For me personally, I have mixed feelings over them. I like to find out what else is out there, but on the other hand they start feeling like annoying commercials. So, try to limit it to one per break and limit it to two or three breaks during the show.

    The other thing is your struggle to pronounce unfamiliar words. You are not alone in this area. Shag regularly butchers the English language...but, for the most part...he doesn't linger on a word. He just goes with whatever he thinks it sounds like. One way to deal with this problem is to simply go through the book and give a quick scan of words/names you aren't sure of and either A) look them up online for how to pronounce them or B) just go with however you think it should sound. Option A is of course preferred, but it's time consuming. Option B is still a bit annoying for listeners who can pronounce words that a podcaster butchers, but it's preferable to listening to the person struggling to pronounce the words and mispronouncing them anyway. Either option enables you to decide before the podcast exactly how you will pronounce those troublesome words and let your monologue and train of thought to continue to flow smoothly.

    Keep up the good work.

    1. Thanks for the comments Joe. I appreciate your feedback.

      I hope you continue to enjoy the shows as I continue to improve.
