Great show! I think the quality is getting better and better. Thanks for the blog plug and kind words. You dont have to feel too bad about about going "off topic" though with the mention of blog. I have been practicing Scrum for quite some time now and like Ed, I have been a certified ScrumMaster since March of last year. I really should post this about this topic on my own blog more: Scrum Alliance Certification.

Dan - Quality of the audio? Quality of the interview? Quality of the hosts getting their act together? Believe me...there's still a LOT of room for improvement, but we thank you for the kind words.

Overall everything is better. The quality of the audio is getting better. Early on there were alot of highs and lows on volumes, but that seems to be better. I think you guys are settling into a format better and seem more "comfortable" in your roles. Interviews are going well too. I dont know if you rehearse much or not (if at all), but it feels very natural and at the same time well thought out.

Haven't heard from Ed in a while! I actually attended the ScrumMaster training in Denver with Ed many years ago...

Rehearse?!?! Ha! It's all about picking up a microphone and going. It makes for some good outtakes. :)
