UPDATE:The recording of today’s show is now posted on YouTube:

Another summer has come and gone, which is great because that means it’s time for our next episode of the Forge. The show is looking good—we have 3 awesome segments. Join us for the live show at 2 PM (EST) on Thursday, September 13th. Add it to your calendar! 

Coming in this episode…

First we’re talking with Don McAllister. Don has been making screencasts since 2005, Don McAllisterwhen he formed his membership site teaching about all things Mac and iOS, ScreenCastsOnline. In addition to making screencasts for his site, Don creates tutorials for top Mac and iOS software vendors, including The Omni Group, Boinx Software, Smile Software, Cultured Code, 37 Signals and many more.

Don is also a regular on Mac related podcasts, including MacBreak Weekly, Bageltech Mac and the Mac Roundtable. You can also find Don as a regular speaker at Macworld | iWorld, Blogworld & New Media Expo, as well as a regular tutor on the Mac Mania cruises.

We are super excited to have him join us, all the way from the U.K.

Over the last two years we’ve received a lot of questions about our studio and how we create the Forge. Well, this summer we unleashed some of our interns on a project to help show off what we do and how we do it.

The last segment, by no means, wants to be left behind by the others. Do you like screencasting? Do you like being acknowledged as a leader in your field? Do you like sweet, sweet prizes? Yeah, us too. Get your best screencasts ready, we’re kicking off the 2012 ScreenChamp awards. Watch and see what you need to do to potentially become a Screenchamp! (Actually see the rules and enter here: We’ll have a post on the blog after the show with all of the details. Check out last year’s finalist videos for inspiration.
