I really like this podcast. A brief introductory discussion of what's new, followed by five questions and answers. The banter is pleasant and entertaining, and the answers are authoritative and in-depth.

Tim and Renee (sp?) have structured this awesome podcast as a banter between photographers where each clearly knows the strengths of the other and they play very nicely on this knowledge. It is more oriented toward post-processing than the moment when the shutter release is pressed so if you’re looking for composition or posing tips this isn’t going to be your first resource. However, Both Tim & Renee understand all aspects of photography and explain lightroom, photoshop, and plugins in a clear direct way you’ll enjoy and learn from.
