Dogear Nation

Category: Technology

Dogear Nation podcasts your TAGS. Hosts Michael Rowe, Michael Martine, and Andy Piper offers their opinions on the latest technology and websites that have been “tagged” by listeners. Bookmarking tags are tools that allow users to assign keywords to a web page for future reference and share with others. Participants in the podcast can tag content they would like to be discussed by adding “Dogear-Nation” as a tag. The hosts and guests are knowledgeable and offer insights to the latest in technology and gadgets. Dogear Nation is also consistent in releasing new content. However, the sound production inhibited full enjoyment of the podcast with muddled lows, hisses and other ambient noise. The hosts record in different locations, and this could be the source of the poor sound quality. Dogear Nation offers a unique service and a novel way of connecting with listeners but has a difficult time standing out against the hundreds of podcasts that offer similar content.

The Jane Ellen

Category: TV and Film

The Jane Ellen is hosted by Jane Ellen, her husband Jim Herrin, and occasionally Adam Cravins. Jane is a writer and does voice-over’s so she is familiar with the entertainment industry. The hosts discus the latest in television series and odd news stories with banter sprinkled through each episode. Jane is very opinionated and is not afraid to voice her opinions. The Jane Ellen releases new episodes Monday through Friday and is very consistent with this release schedule: an impressive feat indeed. However, The Jane Ellen falls short by not offering enough entertainment and ways for listeners to participate. These two things are needed for the podcast to stand out in the already crowded TV and Film category. We encourage the podcast to focus on ways to increase listener participation thus adding variety to the content. Ultimately, if listeners are looking for Jane Ellen’s and Jim’s opinions on the latest in show-biz news and gossip, then The Jane Ellen podcast is for you.

Superego Podcast

Category: Comedy

Superego is a comedy podcast that presents a collection of improvised radio-style sketches delivered on the first of every month. The show is hosted by Drs. Jeremy Carter and Matt Gourley. The Superego Podcast is primarily an audio podcast but does include video episodes. Jeff is focused on creating episodes that are rarely longer than twenty five minutes for those listening while commuting. The unique style the Superego Podcast employs to deliver the content is similar to that of Saturday Night Live except in audio form. Each sketch is segmented by the name of the profile being analyzed regarding self-obsession. Superego Podcast offers listeners the choice of choosing which part of the show to which to listen by an enhanced podcast format. Enhanced podcasts are able to present chapter markers in an audio file much like a DVD movie can allow users to jump to predetermined spots in a presentation. The skill of writing and suburb audio production is of the best that Edgy Podcast Reviews have ever heard. The audio is crystal clear and void of distracting artifacts. In addition, the vocal talent and crafty comedic timing is of such quality that Daniel and Jana were all too happy to present Superego Podcast two perfect scores. A feat that has not occurred for a podcast since June 6, 2008 when Buzz Out Loud received a perfect score.
