BimP PodcastI like LEGO and I have metioned it before on the show. Well it turns out there is a MacCast listener who does his own LEGO podcaast. Here is a snippet of the email he sent me:

I noticed during the last podcast that you were a fan of LEGO. Just
wanted to let you know that I have started a new LEGO podcast. On the
show we discuss LEGO fandom for the adult fan of LEGO (AFOLs) and
whatever items I think might be of interest to LEGO fans (I sneak a
MAC plug in every chance I get). Time permitted (and I know your time
is precious!), check out my podcast at:

If your into LEGO you may want to check it out.

You were mentioned in the current Macworld, here is a link to the web article
http://www.macworld.com/2005/04/secrets/junecreate/index1.php
