I was very happy to see you're podcasting with the editors on your magazine.
Since I've been podcasting for a few years there was a couple things you might want to try to make the podcast a better listening experience for your subscribers.
1. You might want to try an application such as the Levelator from Gigavox.com to bring all the voices in your podcast up to the same level. Now there are times I could not hear one or two while others were quite loud.
2. For the moderator, try to edit out your deep, heavy breaths between each sentence. Everyone breathes on the air, but there are times that it just becomes too much to listen to. Simple editing can get rid of them before release.
3. Make certain the participants have notes ready for the questions you're asking them. They seemed lost trying to remember what they wrote in the magazine at times when simple notes would help them keep the conversation flowing.
Thank you and keep up the good work.
