    I love your short format! Ofcourse can’t hurt to hear about maybe we can talk a little bit about what will be going on during an August edition :D .

    Alright Declan? David Wilson pimped your show to the BLUG-chat list. As he said, good to have “open source news with a local accent” :-)

    Some suggestions / requests for you, if you’re taking:

    - Please choose a sane filename format, for those times when we can’t sort by ID3 info. Something like CM001_ would be better before the short descriptive title than just 1_.

    - Well formed ID3v1/2 tags would be lovely :-)

    - Fair enough if you only mean to aim at locals, but having been over in England studying of late I reckon you could stand to slow your pace of speech just a little sometimes, for the benefit of everyone who’s not from here!

    Lookin’ forward to hearing more. I agree with Jaime above the bulletin format is nice. Discussions with guests are good too, maybe you’ll mix it up a bit as time goes on. Well done for starting, all the best!

    Short-cast is a good idea, but can you slow down your rate of speech? Even though I’m from Cork I still found it hard to keep up :D

    Cheers for the feedback folks! Mucho apreciĆ³.

    I was wondering how to pace the speech. I did a few trials speaking slowly but it came across a little flat and deflated. Kind of like a cricket commentator on a rainy Sunday!

    I’ll slow it down for the next episode and if it starts to sound like the boring monotonous priest in Father Ted we can get a couple of Cork people on to liven things up :-)
