On the other end, this makes me feel a bit uncomfortable listening to some podcasts. I used to listen to quite a few popular mac/tech podcasts, but the feeling that I knew these folk was somehow quite unpleasant. 1. I don’t & 2. I live in a very different world. They are often over long with a lot of friendly, between presenters, chat. I now keep an eye and dip in occasionally when the topic looks good thank to Castro’s triage.
Tide, I very much enjoyed because I had met irl Doug and virtually Dai. My own broadcasting/podcasting efforts were mostly aimed at folk just like me. I’d guess I knew many of our audience.
