MCP SE16 – Triple Threat Launchcast

Hey all!

It occurred to me that I never actually put this launchcast on the feed. Since the next episode has been delayed due to production difficulties, this seemed to be the ideal time to put it up as an extra bit of content. Listen as Philippa Ballantine, J. Daniel Sawyer and I take calls from listeners and kick off the next stage of our podcasting projects. Enjoy!

MCP SE06 – Feedback Show, Episode II: Attack of the Kiwi, Part 1

Pip Ballantine joined me, Dan Sawyer and Kitty Nic’Iaian for another feedback extravaganza. This one is so long I had to break it in half. And yes, I know that I said “special episode 5″ at the beginning. I’d lost count, I’m afraid…
