Out of Nouns a Show Abounds
James Lipton, Barbara Walters, Howard Stern—each made famous by an incredible ability to conduct interviews. Were they always so practiced? Absolutely not, they honed their skills over time. They learned when to interject, when to pull back, when to ham it up and when to press their guests to the limit in order to glean some amazing insights. As was once the case with Lipton, Walters and Stern, Chris Laudando is a rookie, yet the premiere episode of his new show Acknowledge with Chris Laudando was polished enough to make it highly enjoyable.
With that said, two things played against Laudando’s efforts. At times the podcast suffered from being a little too “inside base-ball”. Chris interviewed comedian and Sirius XM host Jen Remauro, being that they are both familiar with one another’s circle of friends too much emphasis was placed on the minutiae of that familiarity. Another area that might need tweaking—the intro and outro. Both felt tacked on and a little flat. During the Remauro interview Chris was emotive and personable. However in the intro/outros he seemed subdued and robotic.
All in all Laudando turned in a good podcast. As Acknowledge with Chris Laudondo continues it will prove to be one of the better podcasts. So it was with the greats, so too will it be with Chris. He will hone his skills and naturally improve over time.
