I'm having trouble accessing the poll. When I click on the link (in Ubuntu Linux 13.10 using either the latest Chromium 34.0.1847.116 or Firefox 30.0) I am taken to a page inviting me to *create* a poll. What I would say in the poll is to "keep it". If the podcast were short, e.g. 5-10 minutes, I think the intro and outro should be brief, but this isn't a short podcast.
