About

The East Wing is a podcast that talks with industry experts about design, solving problems and the keys to creating products with value. So many awesome people out there, doing amazing things. We want to talk to them all.

How Often are Episodes Posted?

We hope to publish a new episode each Wednesday. Some podcasts do the whole live thing and if Tim had the dev knowledge, he’d probably do the same but, at this point it’s just a hassle. We’re bringing back the “recorded previously” stuff.

How is This Show Done?

This show wouldn’t be possible with the help of some awesome plug-ins, people and apps. First off, a big thank you to podPress for an amazing plug-in that makes setting up the podcast feed and player a breeze. Our feeds are run through Feedburner. We keep the site running fast through W3 Total Cache. Our stats and analytics our made possible by StatPress (started using them a while ago and love it). Shows are recorded using my Rode Podcaster with the help of Skype and Audio Hijack Pro (recommendation by Niki Brown). All audio files are hosted with Amazon S3. Our beautiful artwork was created by the talented Paddy Donnelly.

If you have suggestions, questions, rants, raves, compliments or would just like to say hello, you can email us at hello@theeastwing.net or use our nifty form. If you are interested in supporting the show, consider becoming a member. We appreciate your support!
