Today I've listened to .NET Rocks episode 974, Holistic Design with Tim Thomas.
Tim talks about the importance of thinking of all levels of design. It's not only the UI but the whole application. Very interesting discussion especially since I started my career as a web developer at an advertising agency. Lot's of pixel pushers there.

Today it's The Changelog episode 117, Go, Martini and Gophercasts with Jeremy Saenz.
I've listened to a few shows on Go already and since it's popularity seems to grow I picked up this one. Jeremy talks about Go in general and about Martini. It's a framework for building web applications much like Sinatra and Nancy and it has a built-in web server. It looks very clean and cool.
He also talks about Gophercasts which is a website with video tutorials for Go. Great place to start if you're interested in trying out Go.
Two shorter shows today but packed with information. First up is Hanselminutes episode 419, Hanselminutiae 13 with Richard Campbell.
