Excellent work for the first episode! Maybe a little long, but you already know that. I will be keen to listen to the next cast once it is uploaded.

Thanks for all the feed back people. We are always going to be working on getting better, and I have no doubt that in the coming weeks you'll see a big increase in the quality of the show!

Keep telling us what you want to see! :D

I don't think its uncoordinated, as you guys have a list of the discussion and I think nothing could be worst then a rehearsed podcast.

I think the problem is people trying to chime in at the same time, try giving cues to who you want to speak, ie. highlander, what do you think about X. Just so you don't have those pauses when two people try to speak at the same time.

You could try using each others names a bit more as its a little hard to track who is speaking

This. Most podcasts I listen to that involve more than two people do this kind of thing. One person essentially acts as the moderator and directs the flow between the other people that are involved.

Other than that, I liked it :D

Yep. This definitely is a recognized issue. And something we are working on. Thanks for the feedback guys :). I'm glad most of you are enjoying it :)

Also, you can't watch you YouTube if you prefer. Find us here: www.youtube.com/diabloherald

Awesome work guys! I especially liked the extra audio at the start trying to figure out how to proceed with the whole names issue, nice touch.

I don't know why people dislike long podcasts, I mean yeah sometimes they can drag on a bit but if it is filled with decent, interesting content then I say more the merrier. Personally I have a 20min drive to work, half hour lunch (which I spend in my car cos cbf with co-workers), then a 20min drive home. This worked out great in terms of timing more or less.

I do agree that a pit of spit and polish needs to be applied to make this podcast really shine but for the most part i loved the topics, tactics and general banter between you guys.

One thing that would have been good was to hear your opinions on lag/server issues, perhaps the computer builds you guys are running (roughly I suppose, that stuff can get a little dry for some, myself included if discussed for too long).

All in all great first ep guys and can't wait for more!

Awesome! I look forward to the next one :) You should set up a chat room or vent channel, it would be awesome to talk to you guys. Your views are so different from American podcasters.
You have a regular subscriber :)

We hang around on the D3downunder.com forums a lot and we have a thread for suggestions for future episodes. A chat room is a good idea!

Glad you enjoy it Lexx. :)

Yeah it was pretty good - you started off nervous but it eventually sounded like it was under control. I did find the fact the first 2 minutes of the podcast sounded like it was meant to be "off air" :)

Good effort though - keep it up!
