Several writers that I once respected for their deep insight and critical thinking have become mediocre podcast talkers. It's not because I think they were phonies. It's because they traded the ease of recording for the difficulty of writing. Podcasting is fun. Ideas flow unedited and once they are out, they are gone. “Follow up” is not editing.
