    I like the shows, especially since you cover productions that other radio shows and podcasts are not covering, often providing performance excerpts.

    But your episodes are TOO LONG and difficult to get through. A lot of the interviews ramble and repeat quite a bit. A bit of editing would snap the podcast up A LOT.

    Keep going!
