Introducing: Feedback Fridays!

March 23rd, 2012 · 12 Comments

So, back here at Podge Cast HQ, the flaws of the show have become a running joke both behind the scenes and around the mics. For the most part, the hosts are analytic, reasonable people (I said for the most part) and so the identification of which specific flaws to focus our efforts on fixing to produce a strong show is the first step we have to take.

So, to that end, we’ve decided to implement Feedback Fridays!, your chance to give direct and honest feedback for us to draw some conclusions from.

So, without further ado:

What was your favorite TPC episode and why?
