This is a series of interviews that I did, many a few years back, before podcasting became commonplace. My original intent was to turn them into a CD, but I had a few release issues and it got put on the back burner and forgotten for awhile.
In the meantime, podcasting got big and more people got fast bandwidth, so I finally just decided to release them for download. Although they are a few years old, the material is fairly timeless.
