.net podcast launches

Paul Boag

Today is an exciting day for me because it sees the launch of the first ever episode of the .net podcast.

I have been mulling over the idea of a panel based show on web design for a while. Although I love doing the boagworld podcast I am conscious that it only provides my own somewhat limited perspective on the industry. I wanted to create a show that brought together some of the leading lights in web design to discuss the big issues of the week.

I had considered starting the show myself but wasn’t sure if I had the clout to attract the calibre of guest I wanted. I was therefore really excited when Dan Oliver, the editor of .net magazine, approached me in regards to producing a podcast for the mag.

I have worked with Dan before on the Practical Web Design Show and he was very open to my ideas. Before I knew it I was lining up guests for the first show.

I have to confess that even though this has been by idea, I have been somewhat terrified at the technical challenges involved. Organising a five way skype call that produces decent quality audio is a challenge at the best of times let alone when you don’t want to keep people hanging around while you twiddle with your settings.

However, it hasn’t come out bad. So, without further ado I give you the .net podcast.

Let me know what you think!
