Last Friday was the premier of our new live talk radio show, Make: Talk. It was really a lot of fun and we're looking forward to doing it again this Friday. In case you missed it, you can listen to the archived show below.
We also want to follow up each episode with Show Notes, links and information related to what came up in conversation. Here (belatedly) are the notes to last week's show. From now on, we'll have these up soon after the webcast.

Make: Talk, Friday, March 13th, 12:00pm PT, 3:00pm ET
This Friday, we'll continue our exploration of Make, Vol. 17, the "Lost Knowledge" issue. We'll chat with Heather McDougal, author of "Your Own Wunderkammer," a how-to on building Cabinets of Wonders. She'll explain how you can make a mini-museum of the awesome and the bizarre in your own home. For more on the subject, visit Heather's blog: Cabinet of Wonders. Also, the hosts of Make: Talk will present their favorite tricks, tips, and tools for makers, and we'll be giving away prizes!
And don't forget, this is live, call-in radio. The show runs for 45 minutes. Call in during showtimes (12-12:45pm PT) and ask questions. The number is: (646) 915-8698. Dale, Mark, and I hope you'll join us this Friday!
