Is there a target time/day for releasing new podcasts? It seems like they are getting released later and later as we go on.

It's about 6 to 8 days. – random Sep 17 '09 at 15:21
it happens when Jeff feeds Joel enough waffles, then a podcast pops out. The problem is, it's taking more and more waffles as time goes on so it may take more time. – Nathan Koop Sep 17 '09 at 15:41

The delay is most likely because Jeff has been sick for the last few days:

They have to take some time to retighten the string between their tin cans after each podcast. Otherwise they won't get a clear enough signal and all we'll hear is static and someone munching on their sandwich.

The string itself slackens over the week and it takes a bit of time to get it taught again before unleashing another scintillating episode on the going ons of the Stack Overflow empire.

Joel is great, but Jeff needs more beard. – balpha Sep 17 '09 at 15:55

There's a lot of work involved in doing a regular podcast, especially when it's a secondary-focus to your day. I'm sure Joel and Jeff are both rather busy doing other things. As such, let's just be patient and wait on their terms.

I'm sure thats the case. I was just wondering if we should continue to expect them fairly early on Thursdays or is it more like it gets here when it gets here? – Rob Allen Sep 17 '09 at 15:42
I have tons of podcasts I subscribe to, so I don't really have any void to fill. When they come in, I listen. Until then, I listen to others :) – Sampson Sep 17 '09 at 16:17

The podcasts are generally released on Wed night/Thurs mornings, they've been a bit delayed last week, and this week. I believe that this is because of DevDays planning etc... As Jonathan points point, it does take a lot of work to put these together.
