As I have broadband, its not that big an issue to jump ahead when you reach a topic I have no interest in.  Nothing forces people to listen to the entire thing, at least that I know of...

For Dial-up users (I guess), maybe keep the length proportional to content, like the others above have mentioned.

I personally prefer the longer Podcasts. It'd be a loss if you couldn't touch as many subjects as you'd like to because of a time constraint. So far, I really appreciate the insight can you give us in the industry. Another valid reason for me: The longer the Podcast, the more I have to listen at work :D

Perhaps you could offer a lower quality or split-up version of the casts. The advantage of the latter is that dial-up users can start listening to the first part while the next part is being downloaded in the meantime.

They're a pretty good length as is, but any longer ones are perfectly welcome. As long as it's got the content.

Exactly.  As long as the content is still good, I'll listen.

My vote would be under 80 minutes if possible, but that is because I burn them to CD and listen to them in the car.

You get wierd looks when you've got PacMan blasting out of a car windows at 80 mph. :)

While a longer podcast is certanly worthwhile, I would opt for a weekly schedule and shorter duration to ensure that the weekly schedule is achieved.

The news becomes far to dated for the gaming aficionado, if podcasts extend to a lesser release frequency.
Whatever I say falls upon deaf ears.
Whatever I write is read by blind eyes.
