    I listened to the June 24 production, it was pretty good. A little slow, but not such that it was boring. Also I noticed on your website you show Shows #1, #2, and #2.5, but in iTunes only Show #1 exists.

    Thanks for the tip we like all comments good or bad, and we aim to improve it.

    In redards to Itunes, my Itunes shows all 3 episodes. I logged into my work computer and see all 3 in that itunes as well. I will check the feed to make sure

    Hmm interesting. Let me try a few things and see what happens.

    First let me make sure we're thinking of the same thing: In my iTunes I see 3 things:

    Bottom Time Radio Show #1
    Bottom Time Radio Show Disclaimer
    Testing show #1

    itunes is a bit Quirky yet.
    When they launched Podcasts into itunes our feed took a week or so to get in and it was up and down. It seems to be working better each day.

    I hate to admit this, but I'm a talk radio junkie, I just like it for some reason....

    Anyway, one suggestion would be, setup a "post a question" page on your website (you can do this any number of ways), and do a little "call-in" session. Most talk radio shows have a call in segment, so why not do a short section on "comments from our last podcast", or "questions from our internet site". I think it would be a great way to get your follower's involved with the show more.

    I would also like to suggest a subscribe form on your webpage, where I can sign up my email address, and I'll get an email as soon as the next episode of the show is released for download! (Cool, no?)

    Anyway, there are lots and lots of cool things you can do with the show, and I'm glad to have found it!

    Cool. Sounds good so far.

    Suggestion: Can you put a wind muff on the new's guy's mic next time? EDIT: 'Willy'.

    Other than that it's nice.

    thanks
