  1. ITM gents,

    I am relatively new listener and after listening to this episode I wanted to leave a couple of notes.

    While I enjoy some of your discussions, I find that I skip far too often. Given that you still don’t have chapters using podcasting 2.0, it is VERY annoying to try to find the beginning of the next segment.

    I am a podcaster and generate chapters for my episodes using Chapter And Verse application in Windows. Given that you already do post production work on the audio, it should only take a few more minutes of work to add the chapters.

    Why not start with chapters in the audio file and once the podcast 2.0 project matures and the bugs are ironed out add that as well? It would make me more willing to listen to your show.

    Stay safe,
    A douchebag.
