I was excited to find this podcast, but argh!!!! It is soooooo painfully long and drawn out.
He goes on and on and on and on and on and on before he gets to the meat of the topic. The first 5-10 minutes (!!!!) are wasted talking about how busy he is, or summarizing everything he's going to say, or over-introducing the guest speaker (not just "this is Dr. So-and-so from such-and-such-university who has published widely on xyz topic", but even where the guest grew up, current citizenship, what page of what journal article has an interesting quote by the person, what company is publishing their latest book and whether it's a good publishing company, blah blah blah).
The meat of the podcast is slightly better, but again, listeners don't need to hear the names of every author on every paper and specific page numbers of every journal article cited. Put that info at the end or in the notes. It's completely distracting from the topic at hand.
The last 1/4 of the podcast often re-iterates the whole damn podcast (not summarizing, but restating everything). Basically each podcast should be 1/2 as long and cut to the chase.
