Please don't get us wrong on this, Linus.  Matthi has done a wonderful service and I've done several place-name podcasts with him (I've even managed to get in some pronunciation tips).  Like all services, though, it can be improved, which Matthi would accept as valid.  For him, it's early days and the service has now raised the funding it needed, which is good news for all.

I've very often noticed that Matthi was looking for people to record something for the podcast but no one responded at all. From what I understand, Matthi is not interested in the 'politics', so I can't see why anyone would not be allowed to be on the podcast. RanG is the most visible piece of electronic media that the Cornish language community has and I think that it should be appreciated how much it does for the community. It's a fun programme.
