Most Popular SPaMCAST Episodes: June 2010 – November 2010

Feb 24, 2011

Occasionally it is interesting to reflect on the podcasts and topics that have been most popular in the past.  Today I reflect on the eclectic mix making up the most popular cast in the second half of 2010.  I defined the second half of 2010 from June to November to reflect that this rating is based on historical download which would put the casts in December at a disadvantage.  The top five are (in rank order):

  1. SPaMCAST 92 - Reinertsen, Product Development Flow
  2. SPaMCAST 87 - Sassenberg, Software Quality, Collaboration Part 2
  3. SPaMCAST 88  - Karten, Manage and Communicate Change
  4. SPaMCAST 90 - Ferdinandi, Technologist's Guide to Performing & Surviving
  5. SPaMCAST 91 - Ethics, Part 1 (Part 2 was heard in SPaMCAST 93)

Four interviews and one essay.  The topics range from lean product development in SPaMCAST 92 through a discussion of ethics.  The common thread?  In my opinion, change and improvement but that is the overall common thread of the Cast as whole so that might not be surprising but if we look closely I think these five say something about taking control of the world around you.  I think these five talk about how we can change the world in which we work for the better; to do more with less and to affect that change in a controlled, ethical manner. 

If you have not listened to these five podcasts check them out and let me know your opinion of the common thread.
