Podcast: TeXtra – Revisited

I have finally gotten a chance to watch this podcast. I don’t like it. There is something very off putting about the way the show is shot. It is too glam, the set and the makeup and that shiny lip balm are distracting. Natali Del Conte, the host, never quite looks at the camera and the angles that are shot are strange. It looks like she is having a conversation with someone off camera and I find it weird. I keep wondering, who is she talking to?

I gave this show a shot. I downloaded all the 18 current episodes and watched them. I am not going to subscribe to this show any longer. I just can’t get into it and I did my time.

Has anyone else watched this podcast? Do you agree or disagree. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Should I give it another shot?

Podcast: TeXtra

GeekBrief.tv has introduced me to a new PodShow Podcast called TeXtra. When I get home I’ll be subscribing to this podcast with my iPod. Here is some information about the show.

TeXtra is about real technology and how it affects real culture and real people. So what that a new social networking site launches? What’s it got to do with you? TeXtra has the news as it happens, and has an opinion about it.

TeXtra is not a chick-reads-tech-news show. It’s not a gadget show. And it’s not a gossip show. Host Natali Del Conte is an accomplished technology journalist, having written for PC Magazine , Variety Magazine , MarketWatch, TechCrunch, The San Francisco Examiner , The Oakland Tribune , and more. She follows consumer and small business technology closely and is there to report it for you. TeXtra films several times a week because tech news waits for no one. Be sure to check in regularly.

This show is fairly new, there are only 13 episodes so you can get caught up very quickly. I will write more once I get a chance to watch the archives and comment more.
