Would really have liked to have more of an introduction about who the hosts were (other than their names) and what they would be bringing to the podcast. I have been on TMC forever but don't really know a lot of other users except by their usernames. There are tons of knowledgeable folks on here...so why these three hosts? I don't mean to say they are in anyway wrong just no information was given. Finally how will this podcast be different from all the others (it might take some time to find its unique voice). I do love that there is a new podcast and will be listening.

Thanks for the feedback. We will provide an introduction in the next recording (which will be podcast #3, as we are about to release #2).

We have some ideas as to how to make it unique, so that is definitely being taken into consideration.
