Would be nice to have an RSS feed so I can use iTunes to subscribe to the Meet the Staff podcast. I hate having to download and manually add media to my library, especially since this will be an ongoing series.

Thanks alot guys, sorry about the crappy mic. I hope I did justic to Warwagon's epic idea.

If anyone has any follow up comments or suggestions please email me

I say we have a contest to see which staff member uses the most 'erm' or 'er' fillers.

My favourite line: "Running Neowin is like running a small city". Hmmm.... I have to agree with the above comments regarding quality of sound. It sounded as thought his mic was in another room. Full credit to the interviewer though, his voice was much more up to the job!

I think warwagon has the perfect voice for this sort of thing A perfect radio voice as well :P

Thank you Warwagon for producing such a cool series. I really look forward to "meeting" the rest of the staff members. Also thank you Daniel for being brave and going first! Nice to meet you! :P

So you think it is a good idea to do podcasts which will cause deaf people or people with difficulity to understand to miss out. Deaf guy here

This podcast is not a core service offering from Neowin but an augmented bonus. As such, it's unfortunate that we don't have the resources at present to produce transcripts for the episodes, but we've taken your feedback on board. On a side note however, your point would be better received had you simply requested that a transcript be considered rather than complaining about the podcast as a whole.

I can hardly hear the voice in the beginning because the music is too loud. I stopped listening because I couldn't understand Daniel. Awful mic or compression quality--either way

Yep I feel your pain. Starting with episode 2 all of that will be much better.

Glad everyone is enjoying the podcast. Starting with Episode 2 the editing was done and will continue to be done in audacity. With that will come much better audio levels. Episode 2's guest also had a much better mic, so tune in next week.

His first computer was positively SUPERB! POWER MONSTER! My first PC was an Amstrad 1512 !

I suspect he's younger than me but hey.

Its a podcast, doesn't need pics. If this was a webpage with staff bios, then yeah, but I'm sure his picture is somewhere on the net, if you search hard for it :P

Pics wouldn't be a bad idea, I have no idea what Dan looks like either.

I agree that pictures would be a good idea, I just don't think it is "useless" without pictures

You can hear them...? Why do you need a video? When it comes to "meeting" people, what difference is their between a seeing them in a video and hearing them in a podcast?

Hehe. We're all fleshborn, but Daniel is Fleshbourne.

Haha, "fleshborn"... I never thought of it like that

Definitely agree with this!

I always have a hard time understanding people from the UK, but he did a good job at speaking, never the less even if he had a crappy mic :P

Episode 2's guest has a much better mic You'll hear that next week

I don't know if it's the mic or if he just has a lousy chat client. It sounds like he'd talking through a small cardboard tube.
