Agreed.  I emailed Richard with my podcast, and he is supposed to get

I would note that these podcasts take real time to do well!  The
actual taping took about 45 minutes, including fiddling.  The editing
took more than three hours, although part of that time was me
re-learning my way through Audacity.
