Videocast Episode 1 - Something a Bit Different

Well, I know it's been a while since I last recorded an audio podcast and still wasn't really up to doing a full audio podcast with the level of show notes I normally do, so I did a video episode instead using my iPad. It's a bit of an experiment, so please let me know what you think and whether you enjoyed it or not.
