I'm resurrecting an old thread, mostly because I just started listening to the podcasts myself. I have know of about them since the beginning more-or-less, but I've always put off listening to them. But today I started and haven't been able to stop. The guy who's making the podcasts has been able to contact and interview several people who have worked with X in the past and the podcasts have some really interesting insights and information that was previously unknown.
