First let me say, fantastic event! I love the discussions and the guest speakers are so informative. Even though these are the top people in their respective fields, the whole event is very laid back, not at all pompous.
My favorite talk, hands down, is "Why Pluto had to die". Highly recommended.
I really love this podcast, and it would be my favorite except for the verrrry long intervals between the date of the actual event and when the podcast is updated! For example it's now March 24 and there is still no March podcast available. I almost give up on it each month.
I would love to just attend the event instead of depending on a podcast, but I live across the country and can't just zip out to L.A. once a month! Please keep them coming!
Listen to it
This is a very engaging podcast. It is intelligent but not too precious about itself.
