I just uploaded the second FAMTalk podcast - this time, I have the host's seat, presenting 'Federation', with a particular focus on SAML 2.0. You can download a PDF plus MP3 or AAC files from FAMTalk.org, or simply subscribe to FAMTalk via iTunes or RSS.
We had some frustrating technical problems recording this episode - the Sony USB headset (UAB-260) I was using developed an annoying crackle about halfway through the program. Unplugging, replugging, rebooting - nothing made it work for more than a few minutes at a time. After wrestling with it for an hour, we decided to just record the outro segment together and I ordered a Griffin iMic to replace the Sony USB Audio box (the headset itself seemed ok) to fill in the gap on my own.
The funny thing was, I got a bit of a cold between the first recording and the second, so the transitions between the different segments are quite obvious - you can hear me get sick and recover, all within an hour
