You can also subscribe via iTunes or any other podcatcher, or stream straight from the site.  If you haven’t listened yet, you have no idea what you’re missing! Give it a try…

We try to keep innovating on the show.  From this week onwards we will also be publishing a text transcript of the show for those that are hard of hearing and to aid searching for content that appears in the audio recording. Look out for this on the Monday following publication.  We’re also considering video, but feel that this would not add much right now for the significant extra work involved by all participants – let us know how you feel about this…

Lastly, we are actively seeking sponsors and advertisers from around the community, so if you are interested in raising the profile of your company, product, solution or event there really is no better way.  Just contact us for more details.
