Episodes with a guest starts with a discussion at the beginning and then there is a Q & A

JavaScriptJabberhttp://devchat.tv/jsjabber/
JavaScript Jabber is more like a JavaScript panel discussion with changing guest. Guests are
really good and topics interesting, but something in the format is annoying me. There are so

Both Carl Franklin and Richard Campbell are professional when it comes to producing a
podcast. They seem to get a really good dialogue going on with their guests and all episodes
haveaclearstructure.
