Although I haven't mustered up the courage to put together my own podcast, I have managed to get into a couple others.

The Art Institute of Atlanta

Aaron Walter graciously asked me to speak to his class at the Art Institute of Atlanta. I basically ramble on for way too long on design and freelance. The first 13 minutes has me talking about how I got into the industry. The next 17 minutes, I talked about English360 and the process involved in that. Finally, I chat about my own site and the progression it has seen over the years along with some of the reasoning behind the decisions I made. The last 15 minutes or so, Aaron asked me some freelance-specific questions, as well.

.Net Podcast

Paul Boag (of Boagworld) was nice enough to allow me to come on and chat with a few other fine folk for the .net magazine podcast. This was a lot of fun and I'd definitely do it again.

The only awkward part for me was when asked about Apollo, I feel like I didn't explain it very well. Ryan Carson stepped in very nicely.

.net is a UK magazine and is also known as Practical Web Design in the States. It's one of the best web-oriented magazines I've seen.

I've got my 'mouse bean' on the desk in front of me and a nice speaker set thanks to .net (good letter & letter of the month prizes)

I used to read it a fair bit but haven't bought a copy in a while, none of the articles seem to grab my interest anymore or go beyond quite basic tutorials.

Am not saying its a bad magazine, its just I'd rather spend £20 on a book which delves a little deeper into a single topic than 3 issues of .net which skim over the basics of alot of topics.

I think my RSS reader might have something to do with it as well....

Thanks for the links. I've been listening to Paul Boag for awhile now, good to see you on there.

I attended the AiA, and Aarron was my CSS instructor as well as my portfolio instructor. It is really cool to see that you got to speak to his class, as I am sure they all really appreciated you taking the time to do it.

Aarron is great, and has taught me quite a bit in the ways of web standards. I also listened to the .net podcast and thought you did a great job with it. The .net podcast is quite humorous every week!

The two of you described Apollo well enough to make me go and give it a go; although I forget exactly who said what.

This was fun to listen to while doing my coursework to do. I seemed to enjoy my coursework a lot more! lol.
