    Too bad you don’t solicit here on your own site.  Not everyone is on a social media platform

    I’m a bit confused by your (BPL’s) response. I went to the podcast page, where each podcast is listed, I assume after it has been produced. Ken’s comment was about BPL not asking on its own site for the questions BEFORE the podcast. I don’t see anything on the podcast page that talks about upcoming podcasts and asking for questions/etc.

    Doug is correct.

    We did miss doing an invite in the form of a forum thread for this episode, my apologies. We’ve done that in past episodes and have used the forum questions in the podcast, so it’s a good mechanism for soliciting podcast questions.

    Also, @idester thanks for pointing out that the email invitation for questions isn’t listed on the podcast index page, so I’ve asked our web folks to add that. It should be there in the next 24 hours or so.
