It's me again. Seems no one else wants to give reviews on your podcasts. I have watched several of them and they are not bad. The one about escaping the Taliban kept me glued to my iPhone a whole hour. Two suggestions; presenters use slides that viewers do not see. This is not good enough. Secondly, viewers want to see and hear the contributors from the audience. Why don't your cameras also focus on the audience? Borrow a leaf from Ted Podcasts.
