This is the latest weekly instalment of the podcast, recorded on Friday – the 8th in the series so far. For those not paying attention there’s been two ‘special editions’ in the last week too. With a cast of thousands (well 5 at peak) this is another big’un (60mins or there about) and well over 30 additional minutes hit the edit-room floor (metaphorically, I use a laptop) this week. I hope you agree the bits left over are worth it.
Dan is more audible this week, although the sound is still ‘authentic’… we discuss Ofcom’s proposed ‘voluntary code’ for mobile broadband providers, Unlimited Drinks (tomorrow!), the Jawbone launch, the state of mobile journalism, Ewan’s upcoming desert-island adventure, our things of the week and so many ‘shout outs’ it hurts.
