Just to put it in text once here, I actually like Russell Beattie and like his work. He and I disagreed on one small point in the larger context of enthusiasm for podcasting. I made a few remarks about him that were not called for, for which I’m sorry. He made a few about me that were not quite correct. I’m cool with that. You gots to be able to take what you dish out.
Around the blogosphere I have seen a few things that made me think that some people have been influenced by me to have a negative opinion of him. That’s not my intention. He in general is every bit as excited about podcasting as anyone, and I appreciate that from him. I just want to be clear on that. However, I do want him to turn up the volume on his podcasts so the damn things are audible. Cranked all the way, I can barely hear them.
