Comments

Podcast?

I would love you to make this show available as a podcast (rather than the manual download of previous shows available on the blog).

Would be great to have the show coming straight down onto the iPod...

Suggest you could use Podomatic or something similar to create the podcast (effectively an mp3 blog, rather than a regular blog with a link to the file - but you knew that..).

 

 

cheers.
