A note from John Strange. Since this podcast was recorded on June 29, 2009 I was told (by my friends on Twitter) about an absolutely fantastic presentation by Dr. Richard E. Miller, Chairman of the English Department at Rutgers University. To really understand how to "write" with multimedia, the primary topic discussed in this podcast, I strongly recommend that you watch Dr. Miller's presentations!
