Shorter Podcasts

This morning, I asked on Twitter:

Am I the only one who thinks most podcasts are far too long? I wish there were more 20-minute, to-the-point shows out there.

Surprisingly, given the amount of replies I received (thanks, everyone!), it appears I am definitely not alone in thinking more tech-oriented podcasts should considering a shorter, “to-the-point” format. I have nothing against longer, more elaborate shows. Like Matt, I just don’t have the time or attention span to dedicate to them.

I collected all the replies in a Storify bundle, and I am going to give these podcasts a listen: Home Work, ZENandTech, Enough, and Planet Money.
