Not Just Another Photoshop Podcast !

The Martini Hour is an adjunct to the wildly entertaining and educating dekePod videos. Deke McClelland and his sidekick Colleen Wheeler explore uncharted territory combining cool jazz, relaxed atmosphere, martinis (gin-based only please!), and ruminations all any and all things digital imaging, Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, Adobe Bridge, Raw, CS4, etc., etc. While the videos are tightly composed and executed for maximum sensory impact, this audio podcast gives you the chance to kick back and enjoy a drink with this crazily intelligent and often hilarious duo. Arguments abound as Deke waxy freely on his unvarnished thoughts on the inner workings of Adobe (including their personnel) and Colleen offers balanced perspective with keen insights from FOO. The both know their stuff so well, that this unrehearsed, unedited blend of tantalizing tirade, hellacious hilarity, and slurpy sarcasm keeps you glued to you audio device of choice. Check this out if you've any interest in a more advanced, perceptive and critical view on this realm of digital imaging.

Entertaining...I actually listened to the whole thing.

Imagine a bar scene, cocktails and humorous banter on the world of digital imaging. The hosts enjoy martinis and present a genuinely spontaneous show. Great jazz in the background too. Good stuff.

Always inspiring and entertaining

Bear with me for this sentence: I'm Chinese and not good at English and don't like writing, but I feel compelled to show my support for Deke and Colleen! Two reasons: 1. The original Dekepod was so halirious but was cancelled. Maritini Hour not only gives me laughs but inspires me! Please don't ever terminate the show! 2. Every show's full of thoughts and contemplations of Deke, Colleen and notable guests in the world of digital imaging. Even a seemingly boring topic - screenshots expanded into insights on color managements, printing creatively, exploiting actions and so on.
