Look ma, we're on the Internets!

     Recently Microsoft Learning launched a new show on TechNet Radio called Cert Talk. If you haven't seen a TechNet Radio show in a while, you might be surprised to learn they have video. I guess TechNet Video just isn't as catchy a title. I suggested updating the name by putting quotes around the word "radio” but they told me to stick to naming exams.

     Anyway, as you can guess by the name, MSL's "TV" show is all about certification. (See, the quotes work!)  We're doing one episode a month with perhaps the occasional special. Our first episode features none other than MSL Psychometrician, Liberty Munson. Liberty has some of the most popular blog posts here on B2L which probably accounts for the already phenomenal success of our first show. Liberty and I talk about what Microsoft is doing with piracy and get all psychometric about the Microsoft Certification Program. If you have enjoyed Liberty's posts in the past, check out this episode. You can find the episode here.

     Since this was our first show, you'll notice we're still settling into things, but I'm really excited to be hosting the show every month. I hope you'll check it out and let us know what you'd like to see us talk about in future episodes. We've already recorded the second episode where I have a great conversation with Mr. Virtualization himself, Edwin Yuen so keep an eye out if you’re into all things virtualization.

    This show, and TechNet Radio in general, looks interesting, and I'd like to subscribe to it in my RSS reader / podcast downloader so I don't miss episodes, but the RSS feed links provided on their pages don't work quite right.

    technet.microsoft.com/.../cc543196.aspx for the whole TechNet Radio,

    technet.microsoft.com/.../cc543196.aspx for only Cert Talk,

    both don't work when I try to add them to my reader, and http://validator.w3.org/feed/ reports several problems with them:

    TechNet Radio gets "This feed does not validate." due to one error, plus "In addition, interoperability with the widest range of feed readers could be improved by implementing the following recommendations."

    And Cert Talk gets "This feed is valid, but interoperability with the widest range of feed readers could be improved by implementing the following recommendations."

    Could you pass this along to the appropriate people to get fixed?

    Thanks Alice. I'll forward this over to the TechNet Radio folks to see if they can fix it. In the mean time, we'll be sure to make a post here whenever we have an episode.
