JLYoung JLYoung writes: Another great episode and I've gone and given the 5 star rating so don't call me out on the next podcast! My only very minor issue with the pocast is that I find that Mike Pekovich is hard to hear sometimes. Can you turn his mike up a bit?

dentalchris dentalchris writes: I agree with Metsch. I love this podcast, but don't use iTunes, and I like to listen while I drive. Ed, I would love it if you could post the podcast itself to update via an RSS feed, which is how I do other podcasts on my android phone on the road.

Littlegrasshopper Littlegrasshopper writes: OK, you have done 14 of these podcasts and you should now have it out of your system. Lets get back to video prodcasts and presentations. If I lived in the 40s it would be fun to sit around and listen to the radio. But I don't and live in the 21st century. Please hurry back and join the rest of us, we miss you!

Metsch Metsch writes: The spontaneity is great, and you still get good info and insight out. I am one of the three people listening, but on a podcast. I am not an Apple head, don't like iTunes, so you'll get no stars from me.
There are more android phones than iPhones, so make it easy for us.

MacGregorWoodWorks MacGregorWoodWorks writes: Great episode guys (#13). Matt, I too purchased the Lie-Nielsen #9 miter plane. At one of their tool events I tried out the #51 and found it a bit large and cumbersome, but the #9 is just the right size and heft. It works great on the shooting board and slices end grain like butta'. Ed, please turn up the volume on Mike's voice. It's as if I am straining to hear words of wisdom from the Dalai Lama and risk missing out on total woodworking consciousness. Keep up the great podcasts!
