    I'm curious about the preference of the episodes. Please be honest, how do you like your Tempcast (no, it's not dead, we are just sleeping).

    Help us improve! Thanks.

    Although I do not listen to them I think shorter episodes and more frequient is best. Best to have something weekly instead of once every few months or whatever it may be. And a lot of times people do not have 2+ hours to just stick into listening something and would probably have to listen to it in chunks.

    But thats just me.

    30-40 minutes is good.
    Less is fine too.

    Yeah I think it depends on a release schedule. Let's say

    Twice a week: Under 15
    Once a week: Under a hour
    Once a month: Over two hours
    Once a year: Over 24 hours

    i think 30 mins or a lil more is a good length.
    1 or 2 hours might be too much for the people talking and a bit too lengthy for the listeners

    IMO, they could talk about anything all day and as long as they're entertaining, I listen. [​IMG]

    1 hour is a perfect for a podcast.

    You don't want it to bore the listers

    ^damn right.

    the longer, I think stuff will get a bit repetitive while other stuff are "thrown in" to keep it long.

    I'd keep it under 1 hour...And it should depend how often you'll do it..

    If it's once a month, 45 min - 1 hour..If it's twice a month 30 min - 45 min...if it's weekly 15min - 30 min..

    I think it should be about 30 - 45 min. That's enough to get in the news, some good humor, a GAYM segment, and keep the file size reasonable.

    It seems like the poll should have an option for between 30 minutes and 1 hour?

    I'd love episodes of about an hour. A little bit shorter is fine too. It shouldn't be too much longer than one hour; two hours is definately too much.

    I got used to the long ones (more than 1 hour) [​IMG]

    But I think around 45 minutes would be a good length for a monthly episode..
