I posted the response below to a post about project management podcasts on this project blog, and wanted to share. I especially want to give a shout out to Dina and Cornelius, and any other experienced project managers that have been contemplating a podcast or even a new blog. I think it would be excellent to do a series of shows like what I describe below, almost like a soap opera for project managers!

Perhaps it’s because I’m a student and haven’t been in a PM role for many years like some people, but I don’t find their shows long.
Personally, I’d like to see another show with a different format that follows a story line from the beginning to the end of a project. It would be great to be able to get inside the head of the project manager and stakeholders, and tell the story from alternating narrators. Each episode could focus on a specific phase of the project or milestone, with the end of the show being the success (or failure) in reaching the milestone.
I think a project manager with a lot of experience under his/her belt, and who is a good storyteller could pull off this type of show rather well.
