Listener Q&A: Jeff: I listened to your podcast for the first time today. Let me say your interview with Evil Roy was one of the best interviews I have ever heard reguardless of the subject. I could not stop listening! A question I have is your voice mail phone number starts with area code (815) are you anywhere near Rockford, IL? Anyway what a great podcast, I will be listening again and will probably listen to some of your older podcast. Keep up the great work. Just as an FYI the sound quailty was very good, but a couple of spots with Evil Roy lagged. Nothing that would stop me from listening to it again thou because it was such a great interview. Can't wait to hear him on your show again. Great Job, Jeff Richard: I vote for Zake and Jack. You get to decide who is who. Pros: Still keeps the email@example.com Almost any email or review will now name "Jake, Jack, Zack, Zach, Jaques, ..." and be 'correct'. Cons: People will think you have more phantom co-hosts.
BTW, I really liked the Randi Rogers and Evil Roy interviews.
