Good info, However
If there was ever a pod cast that needed to be made into a video podcast this is it. Good interviews where the moderator and guest are speaking about Aperture but you cannot see what they are doing or referring to. Change over to video pod cast and show us instead of just telling us.
I am brand new to Aperture. I listen to these over and over again (particularly the "how to" topics such as color management and the selecting and rating topics). Even the more general ones are filled with wonderful tips! My only complaint is that there are not more of these! Please keep them coming! I would love to hear a "how to" on the levels adjustment hud and some of the best techniques for applying these adjustments!

Excellent info. Definately a must have cast! My hat is off to O'Reilly Media and Apple.
