Thanks BC for the helpful tips!
I enjoyed the interview with Ron Ardito. He had several useful facts for me.
I've learned so much
Unfortunately my printer seems riddled with issues. I have enjoyed listening to these podcasts and have learned a lot about maintaining and troubleshooting my printer. They are easy to listen to,and are very informative.
A Great Podcast for Print Makers
I've heard some amazing podcasts sometimes answering burning questions, other times confirming what I've experienced, and still other times opening doors to new ideas and resources. It's great to heard so much insightful information about something I'm so interested in. (And I can do it while I'm driving around town). I hope they make more!
