Ideal podcast length?

Tuesday, April 12th, 2005
I'm making slow but steady progress on the plans for the eProductivity.NET blog site and podcasts. I plan to keep the specifics under wraps a little while longer until I'm ready to launch. (For those who have already clicked the link on the site, no need to click again. When I'm ready, I'll send you an announcement and a link to a special podcast and the RSS feed).

I'm working on the outline for the eProductivity.NET podcast show format.  I'm curious to know what your ideal podcast length is and why.

Fifteen minutes? 5 minutes? 20 Minutes?

What works for you?

5-10 minutes is a good length

5-10 minutes is a good length, in my opinion. It's not too long ... it can be listened to in one go, and it provides a quick snapshot of a topic.

I like 20-30 minutes ...

I like 20-30 minutes because that means I can listen to it in two junks. One on the way to work, the other on the way back (short commute times here in Perth :). Having said that I struggle keeping mine under 30, mainly because to explore a topic properly I think you need 30-40 minutes, at least. Anything under that, and you're only skimming a topic.

I prefer 5-15 minute podcasts. However, if the subject matter is interesting I would listen to whatever you say Eric :-)

Ideal podcast length?

I like 30 minutes. It is perfect for the trip to work and for a workout. I wish I could
