Podcasts on Flash

[](http://www.amazon.com/dp/0789737027?ie=UTF8&tag=mrchompersnet-20) With my 3G iPod nano, I’ve run the course on getting my learn on as far as adjusting my fantasy football team or catching up on political satire. This weekend I was getting jiggy with ActionScript 3 and actively sought out what podcasts might be available, video or otherwise, on the subject.

I didn’t find much. However, I found at least one use of podcasting that are extending the official knowledge out there. I’ve been reading the [ActionScript 3.0 Game Programming University](http://www.amazon.com/dp/0789737027?ie=UTF8&tag=mrchompersnet-20) by Gary Rosenzweig off my [Safari](http://safari.oreilly.com) account to get a little more hands-on with the code. Turns out, Gary also has a [podcast](http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewPodcast?id=261154936&s=143441&i=19810109) that extends the lessons in the book, complete with screen grabs (done on the Mac, just to needle it in for some of you) on how to further modify or extend the code examples detailed in some of the lessons. That’s pretty nifty from both a marketing and an educational perspective.

I’d love to find out more about podcasts centered around Flash, Actionscript 3 or scripting in general (for all my experimentations and tutorials, Ruby on Rails still isn’t taking for me — and neither is Flex).
