I will re-post part of an email I sent to the list before and this is
my personal opinion only.

Changing the release schedule
...As stated before we have made a commitment to our listeners to
release five shows a week. Each time we stick to what we do we cement
the idea that HPR is a regular trusted community that stands by what it
says. I already get complaints from people that we produce too many
shows (See Fab's OggCamp interview). We are already telling people to
delete the show not the feed. 
Two additional shows a week, means that someone needs to prepare (check
the audio, add intros/ outro, add show notes add ID tags, update the
queue list, email the new hosts, etc etc). That can be done ahead of
time but posting needs to be done every day. That means you are
committing someone to connecting to HPR from where ever they are to
confirm that all the feeds are working, that each episode has been
published correctly, that each show can be played from start to finish,
that the website is rendering the show notes correctly. They will need
to do this even if they are on Vacation, on a business trip, are
abroad, are on a unstable Internet connection. Even if we automate
it ..., the *responsibility* has increased and the checks and fixes all
still need to be done. We do this every week day but I for one am not
willing to commit my weekends as well, many of which already are full
with editing or recording HPR shows. A five day a week release schedule
means that the show numbers are predictable. Monday show ends in a 1 or
a 6, Tuesdays 2 or a 7, etc. This is incredibly handy when you are
barely awake.
