MoshPod is for:
PODNOOBS: If you don’t have time to listen to a lot of pods, and/or you don’t want to spend time looking for good ones, look no further.
PODFIENDS: If you love pods like us, hear what we like and why. You might find your new favourite pod among our selections. If you start listening to the shows we draw from regularly, then enjoy listening out for what we selected as the best, and our thoughts on the subjects.
INTRO/TOPIC SHOWS: These are our first “flavour” shows; we have chosen a topic for each episode and given you a selection of pods loosely related to that topic. Generally we draw pods from our long-time favourite shows for these episodes (see list of Podcasts we use) but there are no rules.
FORTNIGHTLY SHOW (TBA): This will be the ongoing show; we will draw only from Pods released in the last fortnight so you can stay up to date with the best pods all in one place.
How we choose podcasts to include in MoshPod:
Simply, if we got a kick out of listening to it, we try to include it. We don’t have to agree with the ideas or point of view; it just needs to be stimulating or enjoyable. (Also see list of Podcasts we use, below).
MoshPod Episode length:
Approx. 2 hours.
We get that you are going to have to download this and possibly copy it to a device to listen to later, could be a pain, so for the effort we want to give you a couple of hours of listening pleasure.
How we choose what to discuss in MoshPod:
We don’t discuss every pod we include but we’ll usually include a Discussion Section in most episodes where each of us can share our thoughts on relevant themes. (Just how relevant Fat Ass Tony’s thoughts are to any specific topic are yet to be determined and need to be evaluated on a case by case basis, have fun with that).
WE NEED FEEDBACK>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Do you want more of us? Just stick with the Pods guys? After you have listened to our first few shows PLEASE tell us what you like….Should we put more effort into including our discussion each episode, or does our ummm… quality of discussion detract from your enjoyment of listening to the selected pods.
FEEDBACK REQUESTED ON:
- Pods we include, what you like and what you don’t, what you want more of.
- Our discussion, do you want more, less or the same?
- Show length: too short, too long?
- Show topics: Where you informed, enraged, couldn’t believe our ignance?
- We’d love to have a listener mailbag session, so send in that show feedback, send in an audio file, we’ll make you famous.
