There is so much content in this series of Podcast it is unbelievable.
Pluses: There is a great website, with instant play, download and RSS subscription options. Excellent show notes with time stamps that enable you to navigate to exactly the show topic detail you want to hear. Of course the depth and volume of content is the real plus with this show.
Minuses: My only comment here is that sometimes the show guest is via phone and occassionally hard to understand because of the phone connection.
Recommendation: If understanding the media and technology industries and their intersection is important to you then you need to listen and subscribe to the On the Record Podcast.
