LISTen: An LISNews.org Podcast -- Episode #122

This week's episode is not graced by that man of mystery, Blake Carver. In lieu thereof we check the zeitgeist for stories AND blog posts, bring an essay about the comments debate on-site, and a quick news miscellany.

Eventually Blake will be making an appearance. We're working on it.

LISTen: An LISNews.org Podcast -- Episode #118

This week's episode is a quick look at last week's zeitgeist, highlights of the "slushpile", and an editorial from Mike Kellat, the owner of Erie Looking Productions. A related commentary released online by Ontario public broadcaster TVO from commentator Jesse Brown connected to the editorial can be found here directly as an M4V video file.

Due to communications complications the audio payload was originally uploaded over GPRS via a Nokia E71x. Cable broadband is having issues locally apparently relative to throughput.
