Aftertaste #2: After the Interview with Lance Willett

2

After recording the Community Interview with Lance Willett, Lance stuck around and we chatted further about pronunciations, upcoming WordCamps, and how to talk about themes with users. This clip runs about ten minutes.

Remember, we’re chatting about WordPress and recording awesome stuff live over on the WPCandy Stream pretty much every day. That’s where this clip was recorded, in fact. If you’re looking for some solid background noise while working on that next WordPress project, do check it out.

Community Interview with Lance Willett about commercial themes on WordPress.com

2

February makes 12 months since commercial (or “premium”) themes were introduced on WordPress.com. I spoke with Lance Willett last year about the announcement, and thought it only proper to sit down and speak with him about it again.

This interview was included, edited for time, in the second half of WPCandy Podcast #31. The full interview is just under an hour long.

Aftertaste #1: After WPCandy Podcast 31 Discussion with Brian Richards

0

Aftertaste is a new podcast/show/extravaganza featuring the conversations that take place once the other WPCandy shows end. I’m taking the idea straight from Dan Benjamin at 5by5 (where so many great podcasts live, by the way) because it’s a great idea, and the podcast equivalent of making products out of your byproducts.

That said, in this very first episode of Aftertaste, listen to Brian Richards and I chatting after recording the first half of WPCandy Podcast #31. There’s a bit of our conversation before the recording to, but it flows together pretty well. If you ever wanted to hear more about meetups and events in Michigan, Canadian band Our Lady Peace, and musings about another future WPCandy podcast, you’re in for a real treat today.
