Announcing the 361 Degrees mobile podcast… Guaranteed one better than the rest!

Standby! Standby! It’s time for the introduction of the all new 361 Degrees Podcast — a mobile technology podcast from Rafe Blandford, Ben Smith and myself.

Rafe Blandford is the founder, editor and unalloyed God of all things Nokia. Feted by the company’s high command, loved by millions (on a good month, Rafe talks to well over three million readers). His site is All About Symbian. Yes. I know. He’s changing the name.

Ben Smith runs — a site he founded to explores the intersect between the technology, services and processes required to deliver a truly mobilised enterprise. He also gives the consumer side of the industry a regular hammering through his other site, The Really Mobile Project.

Both gents are hugely respected in the marketplace. So it is a delight — an utter delight — to announce our all new collaboration. An official collaboration, if you like.

The format is an audio podcast, published weekly. We’ve recorded 4 episodes so far. Smith has mostly been playing the role of agitator, bating Rafe and then me in turn with delicious questions like, “So Ewan, why is the apps world dead?”

The inaugural episode is dedicated to the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play handset — plus, a tiny bit of Dom Jolly. Aye. Him off the television.

Here’s the audio embed of the first episode:


You can follow 361 Degrees:

on it’s own site;
on AudioBoo;
on Soundcloud;
at Wireless Worker;
at Mobile Industry Review;
at All About Symbian;
with an RSS reader or podcatcher;
or via iTunes.

Do post your comments and we’ll read them out and react to them. I think the best place to post them would be on the main 361 Degrees episode page.
