Carl Franklin is the co-host of dotnetrocks, as well as several other podcasts. He's a well-known figure in the dotnet community, coming in from the visual basic community before that. I remember hearing about him back in the day when I was rocking the VB.
Carl's also a fantastic musician, and his prowess at various conference jamfests is legendary. He took part in Codemash 2009's jamfest and definitely rocked the house.
I very much appreciate him taking the time to sit down with me and tell us his story. It is a great one, and he has some great advice for people getting into the field. His experience with the podcasting world has exposed him to a ton of different people, and this has definitely influenced the way he looks at things.
