In this show we have a guest interviewer and co-host: Brian Gorbett is a Developer Evangelist for Microsoft DPE based out of Chicago and a new teammate of Dave and Larry's.  Brian is filling in for Dave while he is on vacation and will be a new contributor to the Thirsty Developer.  Brian recently attended an Internal Microsoft conference, called Techready.  While at the conference he recorded a couple of great interviews:

Scott Guthrie - ScottGu tells us about .NET 3.5 and Visual Studio 2008 SP1 and answers some concerns about the upcoming MVC Framework and how it will and will not effect traditional web forms development.  He also lets us know why his blog has been do quiet lately.

Mark Hindsbo - Mark is the general manager of Microsoft Developer and Platform Evangelism.  He and Brian talk about DPEs role and shares his outlook on development and Microsoft's vision for software and services.

There's something unusual about your RSS feeds. I use Outlook 2007's RSS support to read blog postings and get podcasts and it works great for how I like to work. But for some reason the RSS feed for Thirsty Developer has a quirk. I have Outlook set to automatically download enclosures for podcasts I listen to regularly. For the other cases, I simply use the "Download/Update all Content" command in Outlook to have it grab the enclosure. For some reason neither of those techniques work for the Thirsty Developer feeds. I get the posting about the podcast automatically but then have to visit the site and download them manually.

Not a biggie, but I thought I'd let you know.

I've been enjoying the podcasts -- keep up the good work!
