This is becoming one of my favorite podcasts. Really enjoy how well thought out they are ahead of time. And they sound great! My only comment was I wish they were a little more in depth, but that’s nitpicking. Highly recommended.
As for a future topic, how about an interview with a tournament director of a large tournament? Surely some good stories there.
Super kind words williams. Great news: Now on iTunes! Please subscribe.
I think we’ll likely see these stretch to 15 minutes, but it is a goal to keep them brief and to the point, and therefore do more of them. There may be special occasions were we go long, but it’s a matter of respecting the time of the person being interviewed (whether being busy, at work, family, pinball, etc). Who knows? Just wrapped up the first month, and I have a few “in the can”.
My main goal is: let them talk, not me. They are much more interesting then I am.
A wise man once told me early in my radio career, make the listener want more. I try to keep these Pinball Profile interviews/podcasts to the point, and not talk for the sake of talking. In each one I’ve done, I could definitely go longer as these are interesting people (to me, and hopefully/likely to the listener). There’s no reason that I wouldn’t have these people on again in the future. But my main rule is: Let the person being interviewed do the majority of the talking. I’d much rather hear them than me.

So great to see a pinball podcast (or any podcast for that matter) that keeps things brief, @PinballProfile. I work as a radio editor too and have a hard time grinding through long podcasts. Which sucks because many of them are interesting but as others have pointed out: There is no need in making everything that long. Keep it up!
