I've been listening to the Giant Robots Smashing into other Giant Robots Podcast for a while now. Sadly I today moved the podcast out of my active feed list due to their recent content changes. Last night, I sent this email in to the firstname.lastname@example.org contact address:
Greetings, I am not impressed by the new content/format of the Giant Robots podcast. The episodes before now were nearly always grand slam, awesome insightful, recommend to all your friends, TED-like experiences. I'm two episodes into the new format. They are of no value to me as a developer not pimping a product. Maybe it's because I'm on the east coast, but I don't know anyone that would benefit from this new content. I've not unsubscribed yet, because I've enjoyed so many good episodes up to now, but it's likely to happen soon. I'm sorry, this has made me sad. Andrew Thompson
This afternoon I received a friendly reply from Ben Orenstein indicating the new format was here to stay.
I respect their freedom to produce the content they choose, but I will miss it.
