This week’s Podcast Review is about the Hawaii Diner Podcast.
Description: The Hawaii Diner Podcast is all about food – whether that means eating out, cooking at home or learning something new – and it is most about celebrating the importance of food in our lives. We are blessed with the bounty of the land and the sea and a rich cultural diversity which makes food in Hawaii unique.
Comments: I had two reasons for reviewing this Podcast, one it is a great example of using audio to augment a website’s purpose and two, it does an excellent job of providing insight into dining in Hawaii.
Each Podcast starts with some very cool and mellow music (my definition) and is professional produced with great sound values and excellent interview techniques. You get the chance to learn directly from some of Hawaii most famous chef’s. Here is a sample of some show titles:
– Mi Casa, Burger Project, The Banyan Veranda and Tadashi
– Lesa Griffith’s Views of Food, Food in Hawaii and the Future of Dining in Hawaii
– An Interview with Elizabeth Andoh, Japanese Culinary Scholar
and about 20 more Podcasts are available.
Pluses: Well produced, interesting interviews. nice website integrating the podcasts into the overall site theme. Good show notes and easy subscribe links as well.
Minuses: The content is a little dated, while the whole site seems to be fairly current the Podcasts are a few months dated. I would also like ‘instant play’ to be available on the site.
Recommendation: First check this out for the Hawaiin food information and then review it as a way for a small business to use a Podcast to augment your other website content. Listen to the Hawaii Diner Podcast.
