It takes more than an interview and some pictures to create a good audio slideshow, but too many slideshows are built on those ingredients alone. As a result, they seem to be slapped together rather than produced. Multimedia editor Colin Mulvaney of the Spokesman Review says slideshows have become predictable and boring. One of his pet peeves:
