  1. Conflating Google Plus with Myspace? Well played, Patrick! 😉

    I’m liking the format. One thought, ask the author you are interviewing about his or her “Pick of the week” just like you each have one. Make it something other than his or her work.

    • Cliff – we took your suggestion to heart and including the guest for next week’s show during our ‘picks’ segment. After you hear it, let us know what you think!

    My sister in law shared your site on her FB – had to find out what you guys were about ..so been listening today. Loved the intro song – nice beat and humor. I understand your old format was 45 minutes of one author. I never heard that format. I can tell you I like what I heard today with the pitter patter back and forth. Patrick has a dry humor that think some might miss – I enjoyed it. (By the way – love the hat Patrick!) John seems to verbalize more of the details to inform the audience – good for the new format. Although you guys might want to get on with the Author since you introduced but went off on tangents again ..so then you had to bring the show focus back to author.

    • Thanks Peggy! Great feedback. The new format will evolve the way the old one did so comments like yours really help. For next week’s episode, we brought the guest in sooner to chat about our picks. Goes live next Tuesday – let us know what you think when you hear it!
