What’s working…

Both Michael and Roger are getting right into the topic in virtually every segment now.  It sounds great and is more welcoming to new listeners.

There is less music for the sake of music, which makes the show easier to follow.  There is still a lot of sound and good production values.

Roger is stronger than before.  He moves forward better and has more confidence when setting up topics.

This is probably mentioned in every one of these, but Michael’s insight is excellent.

What needs some attention…

Michael makes very insightful points but they still often come very late in the segment. It would make a big difference if they were right up front as he and Roger start a topic.

Even as they start topics almost immediately, there is still some meandering in the topic lead, which can sound confusing.  The first example below illustrates this.

Michael can sound distracted, which makes him sound unprepared.

Audio Examples…

Star Trek or Star Wars.  Can’t quite tell what the topic is or where it is going…

WIBW 03 meander confusing star wars or trek

 

Great insightful point from Michael, on a very controversial and relevant topic.  But it’s almost 4.30 into the segment by the time he gets here…

WIBW 02 great point

 

Roger with a strong, confident lead and very little reading.  Michael with excellent reaction…

WIBW 04 good roger and michael
