  1. Hey Ben, what about trying to do a video podcast, cause I thought you had mentioned something about it before.

  2. I’m a very regular listener here… and please no video podcast.

    I listen to you guys on my iPod while I’m doing things around the house, and a video iPod would complicate things for me (and I would assume a lot of your listeners).

    I actually spent a couple hours at one point figuring out how to strip the audio out of your past video podcasts.

    Just… just don’t.

    Seeing you and Jones doesn’t add anything to your podcast.

  3. First, James Rolfe is a great guy.

    Wish I could be there, would love to meet you someday, but I cannot right now due to financial issues. I would not at all object to living vicariously through a video podcast. 🙂

    Keep up the inspirational work,

    – Richard
