A recent post in the Bloggernacle inspired me to put up a page of comments from my listeners.

I definitely feel like a novice in the radio/interview arena…and it pains me to hear my own voice….so I totally understand the comments (though I do wish they would send me feedback on how to improve).

All that said, I do feel like we need:

1) More knowledge
2) More open forums for discussion, and
3) Less pain in the church

…..and as long as this void exists, I’m gonna do my best to fill it.

Of course, as soon as others come along that are better at doing this than me…..I’ll be more than happy to hang my hat. :)

Until then, you’ll just all have to bear with me a bit (or not, as it were). :)

    Keep going, John. In my book you have just the right amount of inquisitive yet non-overbearing approach to your interviews. When I listen there is no question in my mind who and what the interview is about…which means your topics an guests are getting the spotlight they deserve.

    And since the one critical comment you link to cannot quantify his objection to your inteview style, I’d say this is not relevant to you.

    Keep up the good work, John. I look forward to every podcast you release. I check the RSS every day to see if anything’s new. As far as I’m concerned you could be charging $$ for this :)

    Your work with these podcasts and what you’re doing for Sunstone is most excellent, invaluable, timely and well-needed.

    Personally, I’ve enjoyed downloading the podcasts, burning them onto a cd, and then listen to them while I drive.

    Keep it up – I hope you can sustain the energy you have for this great project!

    Whew! I just barelyy started posting here, and already it’s sucked me in. As you can all see, I have a hard time keeping my prose short and sweet, and its bringing me down. I’ve spent far more time reading and writing responses online here than my professional or family life can sustain for the time being, so I will have to back off considerably. Sorry for all the long-windedness, and don’t be surprised if I ease back and don’t post for a little while here.
