5 thoughts on “The Hobson and Holtz Report – Podcast #2: January 10, 2005

  1. The Hobson

    Neville Hobson and Shel Holtz have just completed and syndicated the second airing of their new podcast for communicators called The Hobson and Holtz Report. If you haven’t yet tuned in, I would encourage you to download the latest show,

  2. Daniel Boone, an American pioneer who helped settle western Virginia and Kentucky, used to say “I move on when I can see the smoke from my nearest neighbor’s chimney.”
    You and Shel were pioneers in 1993, when I first met you two, and you’ve kept pioneering. Good work (and I haven’t even listened to find out if I am being roasted or just marinated).

  3. I like listening to you show but
    the Amsterdam volume is too low
    or, the Concord volume is too high.
    Is it possible to even them out?
