Excellent concept and decent execution

This show has a brilliant idea: use the iPad in new ways to achieve a task. Ryan and Federico have a great deal of experience, and it shows in the quality of their conversations. There is criticism that Ryan is a little robotic, however I wouldn't pay too much attention to that. Every new host has a learning curve, but Ryan has the makings of a great podcast host. Federico is as great as ever, of course. Anyway, if you are interested in using the iPad for more, listen to this podcast.

Doesn’t have that natural conversation feel...

I really wanted to love this podcast because I love the others on RelayFM, but I’m struggling and I hope you don’t mind some constructive criticism. I was hoping this would feel like 2 friends talking about something they are passionate about (the iPad) but instead it feels very scripted. Especially with Ryan- it sounds like he’s just robotically reading from a sheet of paper. It just doesn’t feel natural to me. I know this is very new, so I’ll check back in later and see how it’s going.
