Joel published on the blog his request for ideas for the new podcast.
So, any ideas?

Have special podcasters on (not guest). These special podcasters would be the other SO Valued Associates:
They would either take the place of Jeff and/or Joel (not permanently of course) or podcast along side them.
Also after reading some of the comments on the blog post I would like to quote Bill Paetzke:
If you add guests, please make sure they mix well with your dynamic–someone with a sense of humor. You’ve had a few dull guests in the past. Perhaps stick to guests who are fellow software entrepreneurs or software developers (regardless of employment) who blog well. Or make a web form for listeners to submit topic proposals and be guests.
Finally the main thing that has kept me listening to these podcast is YOU GUYS (Jeff & Joel). You're funny and easily likable. If one of you takes an extended break
</cough> I'll probably quit listening. It just wouldn't be right.
I feel that if Joel & Jeff take the trouble to engage a guest they should act like talk show hosts and let the guest chat a lot more on his or her subject. Yes, some guests are not as verbal as we would like but still. I feel that J&J tend to drown or dampen the guest with their stuff. We can listen to their stuff, on podcasts that do not contain a guest.
Perhaps J&J could go on a course of "How to make you guest feel at home, and how to keep them talking"
My 2 cents worth
