Interesting approach, I like it. Usually when one reads someone else's words, really isn't much need to distance you yourself from the material, though I found the occasional asides referring to the author a thoughtful touch. Bopping around, looking for specific passages seemed slightly unprepared, but it didn't matter in the slightest (since radio hosts end up doing the same). You seemed to hit all the most interesting points of the article quite fluidly, and that's like 90% right there... and you added a bit of your own perspective to it as well, bonus points.
Compelling read, pacing was thoughtful, the intro into the material could've been tightened up a little, if that. Excellent first podcast of course, has all the hallmarks of a consummate producer at work. How about the effect of sound on organic entities, as a future podcast? Ya know, singing to plants, mating calls, gas... idk
