Instructables Podcast Update... Answered

Picture of

I wanted to take a minute to thank the people here in the forums who listened to the podcast Jake and I put out, for giving us feedback and sending us questions. It was really helpful and a lot of fun. Unfortunately the response from the community here doesn't seem to really want a podcast, and that's okay. To the four of you who might have enjoyed it, Jake and I have set up our own space for the podcast, and will continue publishing them outside of Instructables.

We both love Instructables, and we'll still reference it a ton in the podcast, but we felt that the podcast might be better served by venturing out on its own. I also don't really want to clutter up the forums with my nonsense.

I didn't get a chance to post last weeks episode here, but it was a really good one that pulled questions from the forums on Makezine, and this week we ventured into guns and 3D printing.

You can find all of our current and future episodes on our website, subscribe to our rss feed, through iTunes, and I'm sure there's a couple other places you can find us (Zune marketplace anyone?).

It was a lot of fun testing the waters of our podcast here, and we really appreciate Instructables staff letting us do it. I hope those of you who enjoyed the podcast will follow us over to the new space and keep listening.

Thanks for the support, and have fun!

Hey guys!

Just want to say it was absolutely great seeing you around the site and while I will miss the updates from my Instructables Feed, I am pleased and thrilled to see you branching of to a more independent venture. Just a suggestion- I see that comments have been closed off and I was wondering if that was intentional. I would love to be able to share my comments on the new podcast.

Speaking of which, Guys, thanks so much for addressing my two questions in such detail. I fully agree about your comments on CNC and not wanting to restrict the technology when there's so many more available alternatives. I'm wondering if 3D printers might actually become like a scape goat for gun scares later in the future then.

Anyway, thanks for a concise and thorough report on the issue! And I will definitely be sending an email to the support email.

Sorry about that., I forgot to push the button to turn on comments. They only stay active for a couple of weeks as a way to try to keep spam off the site. It should be good now.

I'm glad you liked our discussion of your question. I wanted to make sure we covered it as well as we could!

It's a download, not live. You send them questions, and they research the answers and think of ideas for you.

If you have an iDevice, you can subscribe to the cast for free.
