Too short

By EricPrice1 - Dec 26 2010
Read more
I have a criticism of this podcast - which is otherwise brilliant and necessary: the podcasts are far too short. Searching for interesting content from iTunes requires a few minutes. If you are looking for something to listen to on the way to work (or at work), to/at the grocery store, etc., it is too much of a hassle to set another program up every 3-5 minutes. The brevity of these CBPP podcasts makes them useless when driving, to name one example, because a driver can not safely set up a new podcast while in the road. This means the entire iTunes library is useless after just 3-5 minutes of content, unless the driver is willing to take the time to pull over, retype a new search, and wait until it downloads. On the other hand, the information in the podcasts is wonderful, useful and informative. But again, so brief that it would be quicker to pull it up online from a website.
