We do a lot of podcasts, both at iMore and at the Mobile Nations network in general. Any given week, we're putting out 5 or more hours of audio and video. Multiply that by the course of year, add in some trade show coverage, cross-overs, and appearances on other networks, and you get the idea. In 2012 we took it up yet another notch. We added more shows, stretched a little beyond mobile, and ramped up a lot of our production efforts. To see which ones you liked the most, we once again turned to analytics and counted all the plays.
Here are your favorite podcasts of the 2012!
5. Ad hoc 2: Skyfall
Take a bunch of Apple and tech geeks who also happen to enjoy a shaken -- not stirred! -- Bond flick, put them in front of mics, hit the record button, and what do you get? Another impromptu episode of Her Majesty's secret podcast, that's what. Join Georgia, Dieter Bohn, Serenity Caldwell, Guy English, Dave Wiskus, and me to talk some Skyfall. From Aston Martins to ass-kickings, cinematography to sex, meta to misogyny, gadgets to gaffs, we're nerding out over, and nitpicking, Bond. James Bond.
4. ZEN and TECH 44: Parenting boundaries and consequences
Georgia and Rene begin their special sub-series on parenting in the information age, and on the benefits of establishing boundaries and teaching children the importance of consequences. This is ZEN and TECH!
