Tech panel podcasts: experience counts

I’m listening to the Gillmor Gang podcast for the first time.

These people write great blogs. It doesn’t translate all that well to audio. I’m not talking about production quality. Too much mumbling. Too many awkward pauses. Way too long. Although I have to give a nod to anyone who uses “mainstreamosphere” in a casual conversation.

If you compare this podcast to This Week in Tech which is another tech “panel” show, you can hear the difference. All the TWIT panelists have television/radio experience. It shows.
