Will there be an RSS link or a way to get to this via iTunes? Speaking only for myself, that would be a heck of a lot more convenient.
Btw, if anyone wants to be a guest, let us know.
It might be popular with 'undisclosed A' or 'undisclosed B' if we can find a way to change their voices.
I'd give it maybe a 7/10. Good overall, a little bit clumsy in a couple of parts (protip: don't walk around the room while recording your audio :) )
I like the concept because for some topics it easier to discuss vs. writing.

Who did the interview? I didn't catch his name anywhere in the interview. I like the concept and overall was good to listen to.

What mic are you using? And what mic are is your guest using?
I like the idea of the podcast. I agree it would be more convenient if it were in iTunes.

Okay, I listened to it. It was good! I'd subscribe if it was on iTunes.

I liked it. It's good to hear the free flowing conversation. I would listen but don't care about iTunes. Just having a link from a post was good for me. You should interview end users as well as integrators and manufacturers.

Oh and yes last year the nude, I mean painted girls and boys, was strange but this year it was very minimal and seemed more tradition than anything.
Anyone have any opinions on length?
I personally cringe when I see podcasts that are an hour long. I seriously question how many people can be engaging / entertaining for that long of a time period. Yes/no?
Glad to hear Mike with his newly polished shoes. 10 to 15 makes a quick time, you could do 30 in 10 minute segments.

Hi John and Mike, I enjoyed the first IPVM podcast and had been about to request podcasts! I'll still want to read plenty of articles and discussions but podcasts are less dry and more entertaining as they include each person's voice.
In future podcasts, I would like the presenters to be introduced at the start with enough brief detail to know who and what they are. I did not know who "Mike" was. Guests should also be introduced at the start, or as their segment starts, or both. The podcast ended abruptly and it would have been nice to have a brief wrap-up.
The podcast length was very convenient but I wouldn't have a problem with longer ones as they can always be paused and resumed. Knowing the topics in advance is very helpful if wanting to skip over a section and just play the ones of most interest.
In any podcast, I would first like IPVM's take on industry news as well as interviews with manufacturers, integrators and even customers with interesting deployments of cameras and related hardware and software. I'm mainly interested in tech news but the questions about how, what and why manufactuers are doing are also of interest.
I would like IPVM members to be able to submit questions as audio recordings, as well as text for those wishing to remain Undisclosed. These questions should be submitted in advance, rather than live, so there is time for research if necessary.
Mike's voice sounded as though he was on a phone which is strange as Skype's audio quality can be very good. At the very least, iPhone earbuds with an inline mic should help improve audio quality. A noise-cancelling microphone should ideally be used rather than relying upon the built-in mics in the computer. If you're doing interviews over Skype or similar, this is a cheap way of significantly increasing audio quality. I use a USB mic for this reason on my MacBook.
I can't wait for your next podcast about the amazing demand for IPVM lanyards and the trade in counterfeit copies!

Very good John. Would like to see more of these podcast.
I enjoyed it. All the suggestions listed are good. Take from the mist commented articles of the week.
Some good feedback from an email to me:
1. Prior to the podcast- have members send questions to you like a mailbag, and have you respond on the podcast.
2. Use 5 min a podcast to educate on new or old topics/technology. I always learn something new on the articles, having this in verbal form while driving would be excellent.
3. One of the more entertaining portions of your site is when someone wants to start a "conflicting" argument with IPVM. Instead of the a forum which can stretch into 30 comments, having a person on to conduct a constructive debate would be both entertaining, and knowledgeable. This will be tough, but would definitely increase followers of the podcast.
4. Have a integrator or end user on for a quick 5 min interview. Have them discuss their challenges and successes when it comes to the IP Video. This would be valuable to get feedback from the front lines of people who are deploying technology, and those who are using it. This will make our community stronger and more knowledgeable.
John. I like how you ran with my idea. Invite me on sometime.
Will there be a Fall 2015 Trends podcast? I would listen if you do one!
