Informative Commentary and Interviews
This is not a background noise talk show. Active listening is required to tune your ear the the British accent. I've subscribed to the podcast since early 2009 and have found the interviews and commentary to be very informative and entertaining. It's a pleasant surprise when an episode shows up in my playlist. The relative infrequency is the only thing that keeps this from being a 5.
A great podcast for web designers
This seems to be the only podcast out there that caters to a general web design audience. The three hosts uncover hidden gems that web designers can use in their every day work, such as web apps and tools and other sites for inspiration. In addition, their guests read like a "Who's who" of the web design world, and give you a rare opportunity to hear the insights of people like CSS guru Eric Meyer outside of reading their blog or an article. It's quite personal and interesting. Further, the podcast's home base of the UK adds a global flavor to it, bringing in people from the States as well as all over Europe. If you are into web design, you can't go wrong. Although, I would love to have the podcast with greater frequency.
