Plea to the Geek army!

Happy 2010!! Before I turn on the recording light today I have a few things to bring you up to speed on for the podcast and the website and I am asking for your comments and your help! It’s all part of my new years resolution!

Firstly, should my show stay weekly? Do you like the weekly routine? Is bi weekly a better option? If I went bi weekly I would probably have to go shorter in length.
Would you like shorter shows overall? I have been sticking to a 20 to 30 minute fixed show length recently. Is that good? Longer? shorter? Chime in!

What do you think of the new format? I have been transcribing my show for the show notes. It’s a pain but thought it might help. Thoughts?

Would you like the show to have interviews?
If went video would you still watch/listen? My momma always said I had a face for radio. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Please chime in below in the comments! Or contact me @geektechlive on Twitter!

Thanks everyone!

Chris, Host of Geek Tech Live!

P.S. I am working on a new design fo the site. Should be a lot prettier and Geekier!
