Congrats on the first episode. I really enjoyed it.

Everyone sounded very comfortable behind the mic and it'll be interesting to hear the on-air chemistry develop as time passes.

The length was a touch short for monthly podcast. I know it's still early and nothing is set in stone yet, but a 45 - 60 minute show is the norm for a weekly podcast. For a monthly podcast, I can imagine a lot more topics to be covered and maybe some extra time devoted to discussion about an event, controversial news story or a developer interview. The ideal length for a podcast is rather subjective. I just like to hear a bunch of guys riff about the latest games and news.

There were some technical issues that will probably be smoothed out later. Sound quality was decent, although a bit tinny. Definitely sounds like everyone was talking over a conference call connection. This was further emphasized by the telltale click of a receiver being picked up or put down at the start and end of the show.

Anyway, I hope you guys keep doing the show. There's a major shortage of gaming podcasts from a Canadian perspective. Shorter, more frequent shows or monthly episodes that have more depth.

cheers,
Clinton

Thanks for the feedback Clinton! You went into a lot of details, that's great. We will definitely review all your comments and look for ways to improve the podcast. Hopefully at some point down the road we'll get better equipment and work out some of the technical quirks like the tinny sound and clicking. Overall though, I was fairly happy with the sound quality. I definitely agree that we need to stick with our Canadian focus, there are so few podcasts that are truly Canadian-centric. We are very excited to fill this niche!
