I love Roguelike Radio, I like Darren and the rest of the hosts and guests.  But, I really would like to see Darren let the guests speak more, play more the role of an interviewer and less like a host.

So many episodes are essentially Darren informing another guest, and the audience, of his opinions. I agree with many of these opinions, but the thing is that I know them by now.

I'm more interested in what the guest, the author, the creator or designer has to say. Of course reacting is fine, but I find in 90% of episodes Darren dominates the guest(s).

I think if Darren just backs off a bit, even if it results in a shorter episode, asks some great questions and follow ups, I think it'll make a good podcast great.

Thanks!

Thanks for the advice! I know what you mean, I do tend to dominate some conversations. I find that when we have silence during the recordings I feel the need to fill it. Also I tend to be the one most prepared by far, with a list of topics I'd like to cover in advance. But I'll see in future about cutting  down on my monologues ;-)

Is it because you followed this advice that the LibTCOD episode is taking so long to get online?  :P

Heh, no, just lack of time.  I'll edit it tonight and have it up tomorrow.

Ah, great! Looking forward to it! 7DRL is getting sooo close, and these series of engine focused episodes are coming in at a very appropriate time for that event :-) Getting me hyped at least!

  Hey Darren I'd recommend checking out the interview style of Ariel Helwani.

  He's a fight journalist but he's the best I've ever seen/heard.

Brian has an interesting accent. Is it from some region of USA?

  Sounds deep south too. Somewhere between Mississippi and South Carolina.

I would have guessed Georgia, or somewhere thereabouts.  Definitely a cool accent - probably my favourite of the accents we've had on the show to date (and we've had a *lot* of different accents).
