Let me know what you think of my latest episode on the enduring legacy of Steve Prefontaine.
I don’t like sports… but I just listened to the entire episode because it was interesting
Terrific job breaking apart that guest’s content and blending it with your episode’s story-arc. Music-bumpers, transitions, voice tracking… it’s all top-shelf.
In the first third (or so) I felt your voice/presense felt flat. Somewhere around the middle, you warmed up or lit up. In the first third I was giving you the benefit of the doubt (“I’ll keep listening…”) but in the middle and onward I was all-in. (Not sure how you turn that into actionable, but there it is.)
You also have a nice nack for cadence and phrasing that kept me listening; I didn’t find I was zoning-out as you were talking.
Your personal emotion came through great in the sober parts (later half). I wish you had laughed a little or been more light-hearted in the first half.
That’s all I got
Craig, truly appreciate the feedback. I will keep the voice tone comments in mind when I listen to the episode again. Good comments re laughing more. I find it much easier to bring that spirit into play during lives interviews. Thanks for the other kinds comments.
Mark, how come you’re not Hoagie anymore?
That’s just how I signed up. But I would love to switch back to ‘Hoagie’ if Craig can share guidance on how to reverse course.
