What Members are listening to?

While discussing Podcasts with members I realised that there are those that others enthuse about some I which have never heard of. So here is a place to list what you recommend, I'll kick off - MikeTheBee

Discussions range from hobbyist electronics to the state of the electronics industry, components, circuit design, and general on and off-topic rants.

Rlab Channel - What is it?

MikeTheBee: Dec 2015: Here's and update on the year since I posted here last. I started a podcast myself, hoping to get others involved on a regular basis. As it has gone several members have contributed audio to the podcast during the year, and others have contributed to video's I have posted on my YouTube channel. I am now reviewing the year and looking forward to improvements I can make for future shows.

Jan2014: On the GG there was a discussion of the need to help communicate with other hackspaces to spread best practice, relevant news of such things as law, funding, and things for sale at various hackspaces. I believe a weekly podcast style communication could fulfil all these needs. I am suggesting the format this takes and we can adjust it based on feedback from the audience.
