Photography Podcast

How long should PhotoNetCast’s episodes be? – Poll results

Posted in Polls on 28-11-2008 | 1 Comment


We understand that the length of the show is also time that you have to invest in listening to it. But it’s a very fine balance: on one hand we want to deliver the information in a clear and relaxed way without being restrained by time (something that from my experience in radio shows, for example, it’s not always possible) and on the other hand we don’t want to "steal" too much of your time.

To help us define the correct length for each show, we asked you about it.

And here are the results…










What do we conclude from these data?

Did I sound too much like the scientist in the headline? 🙂

We are currently aiming for the duration of each show to be between the 45 and the 60 minute mark. It seems that about 70% of you agree with it.

Sometimes, especially when we have guests on the show, it’s hard to cut the interviews, and this should actually be my job, but normally the conversation is flowing so well that we don’t even realize how much time we’re taking, but we’ll make an effort.

In any case, we’d like to thank everyone who participated on the poll. We hope that the show doesn’t feel much like a sluggish block of wasted time on your mp3 player and that you keep looking forward for it every two weeks. We know we do.

As always, if you have comments that could help us improve the show, use the comment section or contact us directly through the contact form. Any feedback is appreciated.

I listen to two photography podcasts and this is one of them. I really like it. If you are concerned about interview lengths you could set a stopwatch on it. I listen to other podcasts where they do have to tell the person that they are “completely out of time.” That tells me that they have a set amount of time they have allocated for the interview to keep the show within a certain time frame.
