Amiga Ireland ,

Excellent podcast

Great to have a local source on such a globalized industry. This is the best tech podcast in Ireland and competes very well with those from USA & Britain.

osx ipad ,

(apple podcast app) Keep it up

Well it looks like apple listened to you Dusty, they have (finally) made a designated app specifically for podcats and although still a little bit rough (radio/stations function doesn't really work just yet) it is fab. Maybe mention it in next podcast as an alternate to iTunes.
this is a terrific podcast- I much enjoy the banter between dusty and neil as well as catching up on all the tech gossip. Please continue to make these excellent and very enjoyeable podcasts. P.S I don't mind the slightly biased nature of this podcast but please don't be so quick to dismiss the glory of Apple
