Phil Hendrie has been promising an iTunes podcast for years, and he has finally delivered. The Phil Hendrie Show “Classic” podcast was posted on his web site in August, and he was calling it an “iTunes” podcast, but it was not available on iTunes. Now it has been added to iTunes, and you can Subscribe Here
If you haven’t heard the podcast, each episode runs about 6 minutes, and combines a short clip from a past show and a few minutes of new commentary from Phil. It’s a great concept, but the result hasn’t been great. The first problem is, the clips are way too short. Longtime fans have probably heard most of these bits over over again, but for newer fans the clips aren’t long enough to be funny. You need to hear the setup, for most of the great lines to really work. The newly added commentary is good, but could be longer and more in-depth.
When the podcast launched, Phil promised three episodes a week. So far there have been 17 episodes in 10 weeks, less than promised, but not bad (considering Phil’s track record).
