Yeah, we once tried to have our own TV channel here at BlenderNation and failed. Still, it was nice while it lasted. Ian Elsner has now launched the Blender show – let’s hope he’ll keep it up! Oh and Ian, if you’re reading this – check out this post! ;-)

Many people have discussed the promise of creating a Blender-centric podcast.
So I have taken the liberty of hosting and broadcasting “The Blender Show”. As the first episode mentions, the video podcast is released under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 license and will feature tutorials, screencasts, interviews with Blender artists, interviews with artists outside the Blender community, showcases of works people have created with Blender, and connections with Blender developers.
The most recent episodes feature an interview with Project Peach Animator Nathan Vegdahl.
I fully intend for the Show to be open in the sense that everyone is encouraged to add content. I have no desire to commercialize the podcast or do anything other than administer the content.
The tag-line of the podcast, “A Journal of Open Source Art”, captures the spirit of the project. In the end we are all artists, from the casual Blender user to the developer who writes the code, but we have the unique ability, through technology, to freely share what we have learned and what we create.
The Blender Show can be found here: http://ciquestudios.com/The_Blender_Show/
The main purpose of the podcast is to educate, entertain, and inspire the Blender community. Any content, content ideas, suggestions, or criticisms are welcome. I hope you enjoy it.
