    CH glad to see the longer RSS posts. Thanks.

    Re podcasts: Early on you seemed to have people I didn’t know, maybe herd of but didn’t know. Lately you’ve had really highly visible folks who get loads of exposure and who we all know. I enjoy FVJ & TDS but see we all know those initials. And for my money the Kelby universe gets more than enough air time. Scott, etc are fun & interesting but they are at least as much media personalities as photogs. Why not try to find some folks who are less known from their own media life? And maybe you could have photographers who also write about photgraphy. I can think of three great bloggers: Mike Johnston, http://theonlinephotographer.typepad.com; Kirk Tuck, http://visualsciencelab.blogspot.com/; Brooks Jensen of Lenswork.com. Hope you already know them if not well read their blogs. Lensworks is beautiful
    Just a thought though. Good job with Bill Frakes.
