Podcasts are never easy. They have a time limit within which you want to convey the message in a very informal but in a systematic manner.

My session with Ardy was very easy. It was well organized, Ardy and I had discussions about the topic itself, expectations from me and from the potential listeners about the topic. Since the topic was something I have a passion for, it did not require any extensive preparation. We were done in twenty minutes. For those of you who want to give back to the community the knowledge you have gained from your experience, this is an excellent forum.
