A Modelerslife

A Modelerslife

Today Dave and Erik review the podcast “A Modelerslife.” All modelers have a life but what do we know of it. This podcast is as much about the people in model railroading has it is about the hobby itself. I've met so many interesting people in the hobby over the years I decided it would be fun to share their back stories with everyone else. So come along with me, Lionel Strang my trusty sidekick, Jim Rindt and Bruce the mail boy as we discover just how many fascinating folks there are in this great hobby.

Things We Liked

Good chemistry with the crew

The audio quality was good for having such a large crew

Good follow up questions

A lot of in-depth analysis and tips on being a model railroader

Erik loved the story of how the father got his son into trains at an early age (because that's how most people get into trains)

Things that Could Be Better

As new listeners, there was no introduction to the show (Welcome to the ___ where we ____). This doesn't have to be long, but tell people what the show is about and tell them what is coming up on the show, if you're not sure, this can always be added in post.

Dave is afraid having the name modelerslife all one word will make it harder to find in directories like Apple iTunes

While there is a nice “guys just hanging out working on their stuff” vibe, Dave felt there were time when you could edit some of the “Where should we go now?” discussion out of the show (and just leave you moving on to the next topic)

On your website, you have a link to explain what Patreon is, but on that page, there are no links to actually join and become a patron.

The music at the end could be used underneath the “goodbyes” and then shortened.

Toward the end when you were flipping through the facebook, it seemed like you were running out of ideas. This would be a good strategy for topics, but maybe do it in show prep, and then frame it better.

There are no links to subscribe to the show for Android people.
