Brian has put up his first podcast. I've just had a listen. My verdict: an excellent start. The first episode consists of Brian talking to Alex Singleton of the Globalisation Institute about the technicalities and disruptive potential of podcasting as a medium. Alex and Brian both spoke clearly and eloquently and had many interesting things to say.

If they do another episode together I'd quite like to hear them talk about the work of the Globalisation Institute. For example I'd quite like to hear Alex's responses to the criticisms from people like Kevin Carson. Conflict can be interesting for the listener, although the conflict on Brian's podcast could obviously be a lot more nuanced than the boring, bogus, left vs. right conflict that Radio 4 always tries to engineer.
