Podcast Suggestion - Listener Feedback

Jack over at TSP does weekly (sometimes twice a week shows) where he addresses listener questions/comments that come by e-mail or phone.  They seem to be pretty popular shows and contain a lot of Jack's thoughts and broad subjects that are of interest to his listeners.

Hearing you, Paul, note that you get prodded by folks a lot for free or relatively free brain picking sessions, you might look at Jack's model.  You could select the questions/comments you address based on their relevance and broad appeal and have at it... (only making these types of podcasts when you feel you have enough solid questions to address).  You did one of this style earlier on shortly after you started podcasting I believe and I remember thinking it being good.

What say you?

At the moment, I am trying to focus on getting the new forum software up an running.  I've decided to not work on videos or podcasts until it done. 

At the same time, Suzy Bean is uploading podcasts I recorded before crisis mode was activated.  And, I did manage to record a couple more that she doesn't have yet. 

I have a file I am maintaining of stuff I want to express that isn't exactly a whole topic.  And some of it is in response to comments here and there.  Plus, there is a thread for questions for me, and those have been getting processed. 

One hitch in the giddyup is that I don't like talking to myself.  So I need to schedule with somebody to do the podcast. 

I think I have addressed a lot of listener stuff in the past.  Have I not?

I'm going to hazard a guess that the OP might have been thinking of an actual call in type show; I had a similar thought when listening to Jack's show the other day.  I think you can do a voicemail type thing via Skype from memory - Phil Chandler (from the Natural Beekeeping podcast) used it for a while.

You have - but sort of here and there in informal fashion (with the expection of the one big Q&A tinkering podcast you did early on).  Without knowing how many questions you get via e-mail I have no idea if there's room to do formalized Q&A shows more often. 

Even a once a month Q&A show where you cherry picked 5-10 elements of listener feedback you wanted to address (you're chomping at the bit to answer or you see the question 40 times a week) would be neat.  Keep in mind I'm only suggesting this in response to hearing you mention (more than once) that you receive a fair amount of questions from people that you have to ignore due to time constraints or the simple fact that they expect a bunch of your time - essentially free - to help them and only them.

If you'd rather just keep doing it the way you are... I suppose I can accept that..

I know that there is a thread around here somewhere that is the source of podcast questions.  And I've instructed Jocelyn to ignore questions from folks that don't meet my forum naming preference.

Subtle.. very subtle.  There - done. 

In any case, while I have no doubt I could come up with thousands of questions for you, I'm not suggesting a Q&A podcast so that I can get something answered.  I just like (most of) Jack's Q&A shows and suspect yours would be at least equally enjoyable.

Hi Paul,

I think Cynthia Thayer of Darthia Farm might make an interesting podcast interview and give your listeners some the Downeast perspective on sustainable living.

Cynthia's home page: http://cynthiaunderwoodthayer.com/

"Cynthia Underwood Thayer writes literary novels with authority, based on firsthand knowledge of the art and culture of time and place. A modern renaissance woman who can birth a lamb, dye with indigo from her garden, spin fiber into yarn, cook a seven course French or Italian dinner made mostly from food she raises organically, play bagpipes and steel pans, she is available for classes, workshops, talks."

Darthia Farm home page http://www.darthiafarm.com/

"Darthia Farm is an organic farm on the Downeast coast of Maine. Darthia Farm has been certified organic by Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association for 33 years. We are a family-run farm and each year accept several apprentices who help us with the farm work in exchange for room board, and a quality learning experience."

I'm doing my best to spread the word about permies and richsoil. Thanks for all you do, and good luck deploying the new forum software.

Best regards,
Allison
