One of my favorite podcasts

Great podcast, with a fact-filled but light and breezy style. The regulars and guests have all been interesting. I wish it came out more often and it would be nice to have an associated web page with links of items being reviewed or discussed on the podcast (like wirecutter). Thanks to The Most Useful Podcast Ever, I now have a subscription to PM.

Feels like college students shooting the breeze at Starbucks

For the detail and depth Popular Mechanics magazine covers, this podcast is a big letdown. The hosts sound more like college students sitting around at Starbucks talking about random topics they know very little about, instead of well-researched, well-prepared hosts of a professional production. In the most recent episode with the Funny-Car driver, the host asked very basic questions before revealing that she was watching you-tube videos about the guest just before the interview to get ready. How about PREPARING for the interview well in advance so that you sound informed and educated about your guests when you interview them? You are the interviewer. I expect your knowledge and familiarity with the guest and material to be above mine (unless you are covering a topic that I do for a living or that’s a strong hobby). But too often the hosts’ comments and questions sound like they are reading Wikipedia on the fly while talking. I love PM magazine, which heavily promotes the podcast. But until the hosts actually do homework and prepare for the show, these hosts aren’t doing PM any favors.

If you are a doer, listen in

This podcast is for anyone who does for him/herself. Each episode is chocked full of great direction and ideas. I encourage you to give it a listen to hear got yourself.

What's a boosted board?

The segment on the Oct 12, 2018 podcast described a long trip taken on a "boosted board" but never actually described what it is. After listening until the end it sounds like it might be battery powered skateboard, or maybe like a hoverboard. For future stories like this, please describe the item you are talking about at the beginning of the story.Otherwise I really like this podcast. The hosts are informative in a fun way.

Vague, or misleading information

This podcast seems thrown together. The sleep podcast gave almost no information about how to improve sleep. The page on the website that supposedly is going to tell you whether you should get a bagged or bagless vaccuum if you have allergies says "Read on." All that follows the command to read on is a podcast player with a podcast about vacuum trains.

Someone needs to write a memo

...saying not to use the word "like" so much. You know like it makes the person like you know sound like an idiot.
