    At the risk of sounding, "weird," here it goes:

    a. It's great that you're not reading from a script, but you might want to either go more for a relaxed, conversational feel (something I can listen to for fun and amusement), or a little bit more precise (if you're reporting what you're talking about). I think it'd be a lot better to go a little bit more relaxed, but to make sure you fill the podcast and don't have a lot of dead airtime.

    b. You seem to have a pretty good voice for podcasting.

    c. Don't use "we" when referring to yourself (unless there will be other podcasters podcasting for compareandcontrast, and that's what you were referring to)!

    d. It might be better to get together with a friend and do it together. That'd really help with the feel, and might be more interesting for the listeners.

    e. The end was really weird. Really.

    f. You've got the sound down, definitely. You're not too close to the mic, or too far away, there's no white noise; it's all good.

    g. I'm not sure how other people feel about "explicit" podcasts, but I know I generally shy away from them unless I'm familiar with why the podcast is explicit. Save what you said at the end (and I'm not sure if that even counts), you might as well keep it clean (unless you really want to curse about buying an iMac just shortly before the new revs ;)).

    Overall, I'm subscribing to the podcast to see how it turns out. Good luck!

    thank you for listening and posting an in depth comment. It really helps out a lot.
    The one thing I don't understand is, what is the explicit part you are talking about? I don't really remember saying anything explicit.
    But thanks a lot for the good critique.

    anyone else?

    sound is good, voice is good but it's too slow. Too many ums and errss...I almost stopped right at the beginning with "let me gather my thoughts..." you should have gathered them before you started!! You need a script/ cheat sheet.

    I stopped it before the end.

    heh, ok.
    I think its a good idea to do a cheat sheet too.
    I just sorta hit record and went. The next ones will be better.

    That's the thing—you didn't really say anything explicit at all. Unless you plan to in the future, you might as well just keep it clean and remove the explicit tag. I'm looking forward to what you'll do in the future.
