[...] My iPod (20GB hard drive based) did well in the pack. It never skipped. But, my experience today caused me to dislike music in podcasts even more. I start my run through some very busy streets with lots of bus traffic. I have to turn the volume up a bit to hear the talking. But then, when the music started it really hurt. Normally that is not a problem because I run with the iPod in hand and I can adjust the volume while fast forwarding the song. Since I am not a contortionist, I was not able to fast forward the song, nor drop the volume. I had to run with the headphones in my hand. No worries though, the music was so loud that I could easily hear when the song stopped. PODCASTERS, I HATE YOUR MUSIC!! And I especially hate it when the level of the music is so much louder than the speaking part. When I got past all the bus traffic I stopped and dropped the volume in general. [...]

I think you have made some valid points - and ones that I have been wondering about. Podcasting for me is a new endeavor and there is a lot of room for improving and shaping the show. My main goal is to get people to think about how important their lifestyle decisions are in determining their long-term health. The major diseases of modern society are predominantly rooted in how we eat and how little we move. I want to create a podcast that will attract as many listeners as possible to hear this simple message. Thanks again for the insightful feedback. This week's show is a planned interview (if the interviewee comes through for me). I am going to make some changes in the show based on what you've said as well as some additional feedback from other listeners. This is how the show will grow into something that has real value. I'll check back with you to see how I'm doing. Have a great work out, drmonte

Dr. Monte, thanks for stopping by. I am sure there are some who listen to your podcast while exercising. Even when I do, I still fast forward through all the songs. I am not asking you to change the format of your podcast for me. I am just saying that podcasters need to think about what they are trying to do...get information out, or play music. We are no longer tied to the format of radio. Music is not bad in and of itself. I personally have a great love of music. But my musical tastes are not what yours are. I listen to your show because I am interested in the medical and exercise content that you provide, not because I want to hear the latest artists. Let's flip this around. If you were listening to a podcast that highlighted new artists in a certain genre of music, but the host kept interjecting his political, religious or communistic opinions into the show, would that not make you less interested in the show? You may love the music, but the in between stuff is not why you listen to the show. It may cause you to seek a different podcast. You were not listening to the show because of the hosts opinions in these other areas, you were listening for the music he provides. Ultimately it is your podcast to produce the way you want. I put my thoughts out there for people to consider. I respect whatever decision you ultimately make. But, that may mean I don't listen to the show when it is all said and done. Beyond that, I think I have taken something away from each and every episode you have produced so far that has been helpful. I love the research you do and the fact that you boil the information down for the rest of us. Great show! Still currently one of my favorites.

I just found out about technorati and was looking around and found this blog. I am happy to get the feedback about the music. I was wondering how people felt about it. I used music believing people would listen while exercising. I also thought that people would not want to listen to extended monologues from me. Regarding the length - I had some episodes where I violated my plan of keeping the show to less than 30 minutes. I promise to try my best to not do that again. I'm really glad I found your blog, and I will incorporate the information. What if I change the format to be a single song at the end of the show? (not counting the intro?) Thanks for the excellent comments. drmonte
