    Another great installment. I'd been traveling for 5 weeks and listened to it on a long flight back to the US – had not tuned in to CA while I was on the road. It was a good way to get back.

    The discussion about the mechanics of blogging fascinated me and answered a lot of questions I'd had about what it takes to put good content out on a regular basis. I want to listen to that part again.

    I've said before that your interviewing style is good and when you raised the issue of Ronald Matters promoting a stereotype and did not let the question drop after his first (good) evasive reply, I thought you handled the questioning well. You kept looking for a more direct answer but in a non-hostile way. You didn't get the response you wanted but you also kept the whole discussion going. I liked that.

    Keep the good stuff coming our way.

    You asked for ideas about people for future episodes and Rod McCollum seems to me that he might be someone to talk with. I found Discreet City through his blog. He's no longer blogging but is still active on Twitter and FB. I think it would be interested to get his perpective.

    I enjoyed this podcast. Not sure why u were on the fence about how we'd receive it. I really enjoyed his candor and not feeling a need to 'butch it up' for the CA crowd. He was himself, unfiltered, and that's always dope.
