Report a podcast (2)

Maybe I should stop complaining about not getting enough feedback on the blog. It is not getting me any more feedback anyway and there is one type of response I get so much of, I cannot handle it and that is the Report a Podcast section.

Podcasts of the most varied kinds are reported to me with a request to review. I used to want to review them all, but I have given up on those that simply do not fit well with the main stream of this blog. However, I loath to see all that effort go wasted and so here is an idea for change:

If you want to submit a podcast for reviewing, accompany it with a small description or review of your own. If I do not come round reviewing the podcast that same month (or even week if the flow will expand some more), I will post what YOU have written at the end of the month (or week). And thus, none of the recommendations have to go lost.

You can communicate your podcast tips by leaving a comment anywhere in the blog or send me a mail, Anne Frid de Vries (in one word) AT yahoo DOT co DOT uk. Less preferable to me, though it can work as well is letting me know through Twitter or Facebook or Stumbleupon.

Before you report, check with the list of reviewed podcasts. There are so many of them, yours may be there already.

To begin, here is one such request that has been lying around:
Hi Anne,
I recently discovered your site on a google alert and have spent more time than I should listening to and enjoying (for the most part) the range of podcasts you've listed. I've been working my podcast for a year or so and would like your input.
Thanks for your consideration and for your hard work at maintaining your site.
