This is a great podcast for anyone involved with Drupal. What I really like is the interviews with top Drupal developers about where Drupal is headed. I develop for Drupal part-time so this podcast helps me keep up-to-date with what's going on. There are also introductions to Drupal and Drupal terminology that should be great for beginners, though you'll get the most out of this podcast if you're already familiar with Drupal.
For Drupal Geeks and Aspiring Novices
Jeff and the Team at Lullabot do this podcast completely in their spare time. These guys are some of the only people evangelizing Drupal this adamantly: they really love the platform, they all commit additions and bug fixes to the project, and they do large professional Drupal work all the time, as Lullabot itself is a business. If you are curious about the capabilities of Drupal (especially soon-to-be-released features), essential modules and configurations, best practices, and community news, this podcast is for you. The videocasts so far only cover the most basic of subjects: I hope they do more soon. Don't expect a great deal of professional radio-style commentary. These people are just passionate developers, not radio/tv broadcasters with 30 years of experience. Leo Laporte has really raised the bar on expectations for geek podcasts, and Jeff Robbins and company, while knowledgeable, are no TWiT. A for Effort
A time consuming way to get the news
This podcast is one of the better ways to get news about drupal developments for those not involved with core on a day to day basis. But there's an awful lot of advertising of lullabot events to wade through to get to that news. There's also an apparently lack of familiarity with what's going on around the rest of the web -- often new developments in drupal are heralded as revolutionary when they're taken for granted in other development environments, or abuses of HTTP are suggested as positive benefits. Occasionally there'll be a useful technique or an interesting interview, but it's not enough to make it worth wading through the rest.
