  Esoteric is what I was aiming at, but there is more.  Each podcast
would be 30 to 60 minutes and so the project to be talked about has to
be on the smaller side.  Jeff would be talking about the theory behind
the project and describing his use of it.  You can't do justice to Zope
or Django in an hour, but you can give a decent presentation of Nabu.  I
am certainly not wedded to my list.  That is one of the reasons I bring
it up here.  I am going to go look up the projects you list here and see
how I think they would fit into the idea.
Thank you,
