228 – ‘J’ is for Jobs
This episode is about all the many, many, many jobs that you do each and every time you build a WordPress website for yourself or for a client. There really are so many! I'm not too sure that I do quite as much as David does, because, as you'll hear, he's does rather a lot. From setting hosting and email, from forms to security, this episode could have gone on for a long time. Maybe you treat each project individually, or have a template that you keep coming back to. Go listen to the podcast today and tell us what you think...
227 – Building websites in a day with your team
I've often thought about building my WordPress websites on the one day model, it's got so much going for it. I've heard stories of quite a few people who are managing this very effectively. However, it's always been something that I've associated with a single freelancer. I'd always assumed that the margins were pretty tight, and therefore most likely to work with one person. Well, Candy Phelps is on the podcast today to tell me (and you) otherwise! She's built a business creating websites in a day with a team, and, as you might have guessed, it's all about the process. If you get the process right from the start, you can make this work, as you'll have all your ducks in a row, so that there's no time wasted and every member of your team know what to do and when to do it. It's pretty interesting to see how this all hangs together. Go listen...

226 – ‘I’ is for Images
The web is made up of Pictures and Words. Some of those pictures are moving (video), but it's basically just those two things. We have easy ways to deal with putting photos and other kinds of images onto our WordPress websites with the features that are baked in, but there's so much more to this topic. What kind of images are the best to use? How many thumbnail sizes should we be storing? Should we be serving our images over a CDN? Is it a good idea to compress our images so that they make a more lean loading experience? Where can we source our images? What software is good for quick alterations to the images that we've got. Honestly, there are a dozen more questions, but you get the idea that there's a lot more to images than meets the eye. Go listen to the podcast to find out more...

Lots of great stuff about WordPress!
Lots of informative and lively discussions about all things WordPress. Great competitions and giveaways too! Thank you Nathan and David for the entertaining way you present your podcast, keep up the great work!
Found so many plugins and software I never thought to look at. Avid listener recommended to anyone who cares about their web business
Superb - and a really different feel
There are a ton of WordPress podcasts around now, and though they're all informative they can get a bit samey, a bit too formal and worthy. Nathan and David have a terrific partnership going on - always useful knowledge to share, but it's all delivered in an informal and irreverent way. They talk about working with WordPress and using the platform the same way that I reckon most of us who work in the freelance field do.
