A) I was thinking they should be shorter. And packed with more jokes. Input would be appreciated.
The length of ep 2 felt just right to me, if you went shorter, I wouldnt go more than 3 minutes for what you're doing here. More jokes are good but more insight/color commentary is just as good. If you cant be your version of [Name of rapid fire Stand up comic] , be your version of Tom Bodett.
I like what you had to say about the food and beer. Here's the thing: "eat local" while excellent advice, isn't actionable. If instead you were to say "eat local AND if you're a tourist in [name of city] here's how to sniff out the venues worth going to" that would have been much better.
I like your descriptive stuff about how cold it felt to be at Niagara Falls, more stuff like that would be cool, not just the description of your smells and tastes but your feels and sounds as well.
Great stuff and I continue to watch with interest.
