Pets.ca - Podcast#14 - Dog food and cat food - Interview with Prin - Please comment

Pet podcast #14 focuses on an interview with Prin, who is one of the most active members on the Pets.ca Bulletin board. Due to the current interest in pet foods because of the recent pet food recall, in this interview we talk with Prin who has done her own personal research on pet food. Pet food is a really complex issue and we tried to keep it simple. We discussed what to avoid and what to look for with regard to pet food ingredients, the differences between dry and wet pet food and other aspects on how to best feed your pet.

The podcast can be downloaded or listened to almost immediately by clicking the triangle in the embedded player straight from the blog. http://www.pets.ca/blog/

Thanks!

Here's a description of what a podcast is:
What is a Podcast?
A podcast is simply an audio file that you can play on your computer or on an MP3 player such as an Ipod. You can think of a podcast as a recorded radio program that you download and then play whenever you want. Podcasts from Pets.ca will of course feature pet tips and other useful pet information. They will be approximately 5-20 minutes in length. Please note that using our new embedded player in the blog, our podcasts can be listened to almost immediately. It works in most, but not all browsers though, in which case they need to be downloaded in their entirety (so it takes a couple of minutes) onto your computer or MP3 player before they can be listened to.

Well done . Yeah Prin and Marko. I much prefer the interview style for the podcasts. I find it keeps my attention much better than someone just speaking for a length of time

I think that was very well done. It gave a really good basic overview of what to look for and what to avoid.

I agree with TeriM the interview style works well

That's ok. I was starting to question my writing... "Uh oh! Do I write with a French accent?" I'm the black sheep of Quebec- the Anglo who decended from other Quebec Anglos.

Prin, you're a star. I wonder if talk radio in montreal has a dedicated pet show, you two should get it going.

lol Nah, people would call in and say "Really? Your name is Princess? Really?" and that would take up most of the 1/2 hour. When I call in a traffic report, they ALWAYS have to brag about my name for like 10 minutes afterward.. Radio people.

I know I'm a bit behind on this, but I'm listening to the podcast now. Great interview Marko! And you both sound different than I expected. Of course, I'm from the south, so your accents are great too. hehe I sound like your typical redneck probably.
