30 Podcasts You Should Be Listening To (part 1)

Reviews
![flickr-abletoven-rss-headphones](/media/blog-images/2014/abletoven-podcast-rss.jpg)I recently put together a show for Hacker Public Radio. Seeing as I had done all this writing, I decided I might as well put together a couple of blog posts. These are 30 podcasts I listen to very regularly. I have listened to many of these since they began (often retroactively) and very much enjoy them. There are a lot of tech shows in here with a mix of science, food, history and popular culture mixed in for good measure. Because most people have attention spans only slightly longer than your average gnat, I've decided to break this up into three separate blog posts, each highlighting 10 different shows. ### 99% Invisible Storytelling is the focus of Roman Mars' podcast 99% Invisible. This show tells the stories behind the…

The Future of Short Order Code

Articles
The future of Short Order code is very much up in the air right now. With a baby on the way in the near future and what seems like no time to work on things for the podcast already There's a good chance that there won't be another episode of Short Order code for at least another few months. I have been considering using the SOC blog as more of a blog and posting all of my programming related posts there and leaving this one as more of a general blog. I have some posts coming soon for programming related things and I'm trying to figure out what makes more sense: posting them here where they'll get a few more eyeballs, or posting them on SOC where the site is…

WordPress Weekly – Usability with Jane Wells

Podcasts
This past Friday I joined Jeffro for another episode of [WordPress Weekly](http://www.talkshoe.com/talkshoe/web/talkCast.jsp?masterId=34224&cmd=tc).  This week we had the good fortune to interview Automattic's usability maven Jane Wells. Jane is one of the minds behind some of the dramatic new changes to the admin interface for WordPress 2.7.  Recently Jane also [posted a poll and a survey](http://wordpress.org/development/2008/11/whats-your-favorite-thing-about-the-27-beta/) to garner some feedback on the new [WordPress Beta](http://wordpress.org/development/2008/11/wordpress-27-beta-1/) that was released on Halowe'en night. Give this week's show a [listen](http://www.talkshoe.com/talkshoe/web/talkCast.jsp?masterId=34224&cmd=tc) and check out some of the great answers to the questions that we came up with.

Creative Complicated?

Articles
![Creative Commons](https://www.creativecommons.ca/images/cc/cc.logo.circle.jpg)The issue of copyright law has never been a simple one. This week a family from Texas has launched a lawsuit against Virgin Mobile for the use of their daughter's picture in an advertising campaign. [![CC Attribution Only](https://i.creativecommons.org/l/by/3.0/88x31.png)](http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/)The catch? The mobile carrier got the photo from Flickr where the photo (at the time) was listed under a [Creative Commons](https://creativecommons.org/) Attibution-only license.  The photo was used without notifying the photographer, or the 16-year-old girl in the picture, whose face is now associated with Virgin Mobile's campaign; though it should be noted that the advertisement _**did**_ contain the required attribution. This story has garnered lots of media attention since [CNN ran this clip](https://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/us/2007/09/24/intv.virgin.flickr.lawsuit.cnn?iref=videosearch) late last week and I don't want to get into too much detail on it. What I wanted…
