They're coming! Honest!
I think the solution is not to cut good content short, but to have more small shows interspersed with the big ones. Lately, even my session report shows have gotten long, and that's where I think I need to cut down. Or take a small topic (like my blogroll, or ordering games from Germany), and make a mini show of it, rather than combining topics into a big show. That way, there will be more varied content here. Not everything has to be the CD-busting interview or All About show.
However, that's what's in the queue now. There was the All About La Città show, and now these two biggies I'm currently working on. So for a little while longer it'll feel like BGTG is a long format podcast. And it will be, for particular shows. But I'm going to make an effort to squeeze in those bite-sized shows, too. I'd like your feedback on this plan.
P.S. In a week my family & I are headed to Hawaii for vacation. I'll have the laptop with us, but I'm not sure if I'll record any shows or not. I'd like to--it's fun for me and actually a perfectly fine thing to do on vacation--but we'll see. What I need to do is update the web page. There's some general cleanup I need to do here on the front page (getting rid of the poll, for instance), and I should post a few secondary pages (show archive, a thank-you page for contributors, and a how-to for my Skype setup).
