    Is the iPhone podcast going to continue? Will there be future episodes?

  • http://www.justinluey.com Justin Luey

    Thanks for listening and taking the time to check in on us.. We’ll be back to cover WWDC.

  • Jason

     Thanks for your reply. Will the podcast return to the weekly format in future or now is it more only to cover special events?

  • http://www.justinluey.com Justin Luey

    I feel stupid saying this, but yes the goal is to return to a weekly show. Actually the goal is to introduce new shows and have several weekly episodes, but we keep getting hit with unexpected scheduling problems.

    Thanks again.
