  1. I wonder why you spend so much time in every episode to say in which cons you are going to. Why can’t you just refer to a list online? How many of your listeners can attend those cons? Especially when you repeat the same information on many episodes. It would be different if this was radio, where you just leave the station on in the background. However, in a podcast you shouldn’t just be reading throught a list.

    Perhaps I’m wrong, and people consider this podcast a premium news source for Shadowrun events. I am not from the US after all. Just something to think about.

    One option would be to move the con section to the end of the podcast.

    Anyway, thanks for the interesting podcast! Keep up the good work. I just wanted to say something constructive as well 🙂
