Yes, yes, I know... my website sucks! I am quite frank with all those that say this (albiet more politely) and say that I don't care, the website is my shoddy storefront in an abandoned alley that no one ever visits. So tell me why I need to invest my time/money into a better experience for those that venture onto my site?
The truth behind my scruffy facade about not caring is that I actually do care. The barrier between me and having a site worth visiting and spending time is a barrier of knowledge. I don't know how to make a better site and I am reaching out to those that can help me put together something you wouldn't be ashamed of. I have ideas all the time about things I would like to include on my website but that idea never materializes because the barrier of knowledge stands in my way.
I have gotten this far along with my podcasting but reciting to myself 'necessity is the mother of invention'. Which means that I figured out how to podcast only after I had the desire to podcast. Now I have the desire to build a decent website and now comes the follow-through.... I'm asking for your help.
If you want to help, email me at twobeerswithsteve(at)hotmail.com. Replace the (at) with an @.

I agree with William Petty. The look of the site is fine. I check in every few days to see if you've posted another stunning interview. Unless you plan to put up message boards, etc., I don't see the need to change it. Then again, I'm not monitoring your web traffic and have never researched what it takes to drive up the number of site visits. Spirko's SurvivalPodcast site is pretty cool. Check out his since it seems to work.
I disagree... I think your web site is as simple as it need to be to get the job done. I do not need fancy pop-ups and animations, the interview content is why I visit. If I have one complaint, it is that the MP3 compression is too aggressive. There are all kinds of chirps and warbles that distract from the show. Just listen to the current posted show.
