Is it just me, or does anyone else think these hour long podcasts are just way over the top…
I just did my very best to get through the latest TalkCrunch with Arrington, Malik and Scoble but didn’t make it half way through. I don’t think I’ve ever made it through an hour long podcast yet. I have had it on in the background as I’ve been doing other things, but invariably I tune out and realise I’ve missed the last ten minutes and wonder what the point was.
I had to wonder as Az, Om and Scoz compained about suffering from information overload and being time-poor whether at any point they gave thought to editing down their hour of jabbering to a more palatable 30 mins.
There’s a lot of things I can do in an hour. Maybe, I’ve just got a short attention span but listening to an unedited dialogue for sixty minutes is not one of those I’m going to make a habit. When podcasters start respecting my time and edit out the crap to fit it into my 15 to 20 min lunch break, well then I just may start having more respect for their podcasts.
