Dear MacBreak Weekly podcast,

You’re frequently interesting and you have great guests.

But why must you be so long? Most of your episodes are over 90 minutes. And as great as your guests are, those 90 minutes aren’t all interesting. I’d love to hear what you and they have to say, but I have a life and a job and a lot of other media I’d like to enjoy.

Normally I don’t recommend committing to a duration in a podcast, but you’re clearly powerless to rambling and you can’t help yourself alone. Your show would be a lot better with a bit more preparation and someone to move it along when the discussion enters a bottomless pit of dull rambling.

Prepare a basic discussion outline beforehand with duration guidelines for each topic, then commit to a 45-minute show.

Thanks, Marco
