iTunes' New & Noteworthy Section
Ken Jones called in to ask if I had some insight into how iTunes mangages their New & Noteworthy section. One thing that I forgot to mention in the episode is that I am not aware of any way to go back and see any archives of which shows were featured previously in the New & Noteworthy section.

Fr. Jim Tucker called in to ask my opinion on which camcorder he should look into. I shared that my own experience with the “VIDEO” side of things is a bit limited. I did share that I am extremely happy with my Canon Vixia HF G10. I used this camera to record THIS INTERVIEW.

Moving RSS From Libsyn to WordPress:
Chris called in to say that he is currently using Feedburner for his podcast. This Feedburner account is currently pulling from his Libsyn rss feed.
