  1. Your nerdy giggly rambling awkward intros are killing this podcast for me bro.

    • Rambling? Yes. Nerdy? I dont even begin to fall in that category. Sorry they aren’t working for you. That’s just me being real and honest. Such is the price to pay for free!

  2. I love the story. It packs a punch and really grabs this listener by the balls (or it would if I had any HAHA).

    But I am going to pull out those imaginary balls and give my take on MPC’s comment (Please don’t hurt me! *cowers in a corner*).

    When I listen to the podcasts, I tend to tune out the intro after a couple minutes until I hear you jump into the story. Only then do I focus entirely on the episode. I really try to listen to ALL of it, because I know you put a lot of effort into the networking and prepping for the promos and such, so when I tune out, it nags my conscience, partly because I know how it feels to put that kind of work into a project.

    Oftentimes during your intros and wrap-ups, I feel that you make light of your abilities, and that is what really bothers me. You have strong writing skills and a knack for story telling and narration that keeps me coming back (which takes a lot because I’m just not the fangirl kind of person, in fact, very few things keep me interested this long).

    I am by no means a professional, far from it, and can only say what works for me when it comes to intros and promos as a consumer. Just like I eat a hamburger mostly for the meat and cheese, I listen to your podcasts mostly for the story. I don’t want a bit of burger with a lot of bun, or the flavor of the whole things becomes obscured. I think that is all MPC was trying to say. Give your promos and intros as much punch as you give your story, make them shorter, perhaps more drabble styled intros and promos, throwing in the added benefit of a bit of your personality, and you’ll have yourself one helluva podcast burger: Juicy, meaty, and full of flavor.

    If you network with others who pack as much punch as the meat of your efforts, I’d definitely be interested in checking them out. But because I don’t feel that same kick in your promos as I do with your story, I tend to not feel the same pull to invest the time needed from my busy schedule to explore them.

    I hope you know I mean absolutely no offense with this comment. And should you be available next year (I’m booked solid through 2010) to be the victim of a Heather interview on my blog, I’d love to have you as my guest!

    *Clicks play* Now the time has come for me to start my marathon listen for this week. HOO RAH!

    • *sob* *sob* *sniff*
      I can.. I can take it… You hate me, you all hate me!

      No, I get it, I do. I plan on focusing my intros more, but right now I’m lucky to get anything recorded and out there. So, for right now, everyone is going to have to bear with me.

      I will say this: I’m not a professional podcaster. I’m just a guy fumbling through trying to figure it all out as I go. And until I do figure it out, it’s going to be what it is.

      I take zero offense and know everyone is just trying to help, but you have to understand that you get what you pay for. If I have to double my time to write out an intro, record and edit that intro so it sounds professional then my approach to the entire project is going to change. I don’t want that. I want my fans to hear who I am, warts and all.

      Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate any and all feedback. I encourage people to be honest with me just as I plan on being honest with everyone listening. I will be working on better intro structure in the future, I promise. Until then, feel free to zip past until the story starts. No one is obligated to listen to the intros.

      Unfortunately, I don’t see this issue ever being resolved. When I tighten up the intros I’m sure I’ll get complaints about it sounding too “polished”. Can’t please everyone, but I’ll try!

      Thanks Heather and thanks everyone! Keep those comments coming! I can take it!


  3. 😀 I definitely understand.

    As for me, I could never do what you do. So it’s all cheesecake!

You got two cents? Then put them here! (That means feel free to comment)
