  • great podcast and a free song [excerpt] to boot, i cant beat that. but for some reason i thought your speaking speed was alittle to fast, even for native english speakers like myself. you must of been in a hurry?

    — No, that’s normal for me. Thanks for the feedback. What do others think?

  • Unfortunately ITunes doesn’t work on Linux. Is there an rss feed for the podcasts?

    — Well, has its own RSS feed, and I’ll always announce here when my podcasts come out. How’s that?

  • Enjoyed the podcast very much. The old articles are interesting but more recent content would be more interesting. Talking speed perhaps a little on the fast side. Also I’d like to suggest you cut the length of the musical interludes. It’s the information that is point. If I want to listen to music, then I’ll download music podcasts. For Linux users, I’d recommend BashPodder, a very useful script for grabbing podcasts, without the hassle of rss and manual downloads.

  • Re: podcast rss feed

    The announcements and rss feed for the whole site are great.

    However I (and possibly others?) have one feed reader for blogs and such, and a separate feed dwnloader for podcasts. i.e. You can sit down annd read the latest entries at your computer. Separate from that, you can download all the latest podcasts for your portable player.

    Not essential, but it would be nice…

    Regardless, keep up the good work, and interesting articles.
