Long time listener but first time forum user here.
I just wanted to share a little feedback on the newest episode of Rewind-A-Raw
for 7/8/19. Usually I enjoy the Post Wrestling podcast despite the [lack of] quality of Raw or SDL or whatever promotion being reviewed.
I appreciate that some nights these shows may not be particularly enthusiastic as well. That being said, I feel like the RAR and RASD shows are getting way long in the tooth before getting to the draw of the podcast.
On this latest episode, I spent almost 40 mins of the podcast listening to John and Wai advertise other things and ramble without much focus.
I don’t mind a little banter, a few quick reminders about upcoming shows, a little news. 40+ mins out of podcast on random things and promoting your other upcoming podcasts (which appear automatically on the feed for what has to be the majority of users/listeners) is a little tiring. Especially when the main draw of these shows is the review and insight on the Raw, Smackdown or the latest PPVs.
The preamble at the start of the podcasts I think shouldn’t be longer than 15 mins on a heavy news day. Most RAR/RASD there isn’t much of merit being commented on in the lead-up to the reviews of Raw/SDL except self promotion of Post-Wrestling episodes- which again, is automatically delivered to most listeners or at the least doesn’t require so much repeating.
I think the actual show reviews are engaging, funny and insightful. Really enjoying the podcast and RAR/RASD recaps and various show reviews. The core of the content is still very good in my opinion.
Please consider trimming down the length of the preamble and promoting at the start of the shows. Or at the least, provide concise and accurate timestamps in the podcast notes so users can get to the actual draw of the podcast without slogging through seven minutes of banter about a giveaway, social anxiety over getting a coffee, et cetera.
I hope this feedback isn’t taken negatively. Though I think the podcast can benefit from “more killer, far less filler”, so to speak.
