Roadtrip and Deep Fried Bytes

I just offered to do a family favor which means I will be taking a roadtrip up to the north of Scotland via my parents next week.  I have to admit I’m really looking forward to the drive and a small break from the book :)

I’m gonna load up my iPhone with the backlog of Deep Fried Bytes episodes 

If you haven’t checked it out, it really is an awesome podcast show.  I’ve listened to the first 4 episodes so far and they are just great.  The shows are particularly cool for me as I hung out with one of the hosts (Keith Elder) and many of the guests at Nashville.  I’m especially looking forward to listening to the Devlink podcast, which is just out.

So far I’ve listened to the interview war stories (awesome), twitter podcast (very good), digg interview (really cool, nice to hear a non .net perspective), and the developing .net on a mac episode (again awesome episode).  I’m incredibly impressed with the diversity off the podcast and really looking forward to listening to more on the trip.

This show is just as good as DNR or Hanselminutes but has a bit of a different flavor (a deep fried one even), if you haven’t checked it out yet, do it now.  Listening to the show on the way to Scotland is obviously appropriate with it being the land of the Deep Fried Mars bar, Pizza and well anything really.

Obviously looking forward to spending a little time with my family, I don’t think I’ve been back across the border in a while now.  So will be nice to see how much my accent digresses back to it’s Scottish roots :)

Hi Chris,

First of all, it was great to meet you and hang out at DevLink this year. Secondly, thanks for taking the time to blog about the podcast and provide your feedback. Knowing that we are up there with DNR and Hanselminutes means a lot. We'll try to keep them coming!
