The John Edwards podcast attempts to strike a folksy, casual tone. The former VP candidate talks about the NCAA tournament being on in the background while he records with wife Elizabeth.
But what really struck me in listening was that Mrs. Edwards plays a much more significant role in the podcast than one might imagine. She fields almost as many policy questions as the former Senator does. She adds her two cents to everything from Social Security to regulating blogs.
It will be interesting to see if future podcasts feature the duo or if John Edwards becomes the focus himself. At the end, he repeatedly says "we" want to talk and "visit us." Is it the Royal We or will the podcast morph into the John and Elizabeth show?
