LISTEN TO EPISODE 26 OF PERFCAST:
Yes, I agree. But that is the case with what seems like every podcast I have produced or have been a part of. There is some sort of mindset of relaxing or not knowing you’re being recorded that just makes people open up. Not sure how to convert that kind of stuff to the recorded part of the show lol.
It was great to be able to join you guys, even just in the chatroom. I must say the post-episode talks were probably where the meat of the discussion was, if you know what I mean.
