Made room for some excellent new ones, so win-win. canion 24 juli, 2021 16:09 @MrHenko At @HemisphericViews we work hard to keep things tight at around 45 minutes per episode, and when we go over there’s usually a good reason. Respect the listener’s time! pimoore 24 juli, 2021 16:16 @canion @mrhenko 💯 this, one of so many reasons I love this podcast! canion 24 juli, 2021 16:22 @pimoore @MrHenko Thank you! That is great to hear. It’s rewarding to know that the work is being enjoyed. martinfeld 24 juli, 2021 16:36 @pimoore Excellent feedback! Thank you! jeremycherfas 24 juli, 2021 18:13 @MrHenko Not just you. Lazy presenters wasting everyone’s time. It might take you 15 minutes to cut 5 minutes of fluff, but if you’ve got even 100 listeners you just saved the world 500 minutes! Pilchuck 24 juli, 2021 18:44 @jeremycherfas A terrific perspective. Too many people don’t think about the hours wasted in meetings! JMaxB 24 juli, 2021 19:05 @jeremycherfas ”Each of these Quarterly Meetings were large and sat near eight hours. Here I had occasion to consider that if is a weighty thing to speak much in large meetings for business… In three hundred minutes are five hours, and he that improperly detains three hundred people one minute, besides other evils that attend it, does an injury like that of imprisoning one man five hours without cause.” — The Journal of John Woolman, 1758 jeremycherfas 25 juli, 2021 07:20 @JMaxB not much has changed down the years. Thanks for that. MrHenko 25 juli, 2021 12:55 @pimoore Glad to hear I’m not the only one. Part of the problem is probably that I’m falling out of love with the format of more ”personality driven” podcasts. MrHenko 25 juli, 2021 12:56 @canion That’s a good principle! I haven’t listened to Hemispheric Views (yet?), but I’ll put it on my mental list for when I want to add more podcasts to my queue. MrHenko 25 juli, 2021 12:57 @jeremycherfas That’s a good way to look at it, and Eat This Podcast is a great example of a podcast that gets to the point. 👍🏻 jeremycherfas 25 juli, 2021 14:40 @MrHenko Thank you. Appreciated.
