Visiting Mr. Einstein and the Sock Monkey

Einstein and Sock Monkey is “A podcast for web geeks and website owners” that was launched fairly recently — as in: “four episodes ago” — by Ron Zasadzinski and Steve Martin.

Ron and Steve, both very active members of the Fort Collins community of web pros, are seriously passionate and seriously competent about all things web. It’s no wonder, then, that their Einstein & Sock Monkey podcast covers lots of interesting topics that appeal to anyone who, in one way or another, is involved in web content creation.

Presented as a casual conversation, every episode comes with an in-depth interview as its main course, garnished with a generous helping of recent news, announcements of upcoming conferences, a virtual book club, and the blogs of the week. Mr. Einstein and the Sock Monkey1 were kind enough to welcome me as a guest on two of these shows.

In episode two, Ron, Steve, and I take a close look at the merits and the implications of the now-infamous Wired article, “The Web is Dead.”

Episode four, which just went online today, features an interview with Jeremy Keith, the author of “HTML5 For Web Designers,” and with web designer Lindsey Ogden. As a guest co-host, I enjoyed our chat about news and blogs which enframed the interview.

If you’re into strategizing, designing, or implementing web sites, do give Einstein and Sock Monkey a listen.


  1. Just in case you’re wondering, Ron and Steve keep it a secret who’s who, so don’t bother asking.
