Review by a Podcast Fanatic

Posted at 23:15 /blog/recognition [link [Bookmark Link]]

Bernadette, from Adelaide, Australia is fanatic about podcasts. That means she listens to a lot of them. She also writes thoughtful reviews, and posts them to her web site,

Last Sunday, Bernadette reviewed The WildeBeat. At the end of her review she concluded:

...As an example of niche or specialist podcasting this is the show others should be measured against. Steve's enthusiasm for his subject is palpable, his knowledge and experience evident and his overall approach is so positive and practical that even a half-fit, nearly-40 urban dweller like myself feels inspired to head off to the wilderness sometime soon.

Thanks, Bernadette!

The WildeBeat Reviewed by Vox Monitor

Posted at 19:28 /blog/recognition [link [Bookmark Link]]

The WildeBeat was the subject of Episode 56 of Vox Monitor, a podcast review podcast. [Warning: Contains adult language]

Eric and Cohry, the hosts, have some fun at our expense. They say that the show is not their cup of tea (or pack of smokes?). But in spite of whatever they're smoking, they generally praised the show overall.
