AND:    If you make it, share it, and publish it.

Eddie Paul interviews are worth a listen. The first one, in particular.

Eddie Paul interviews  

The first one is an 'interview with himself'.  A great listen for students.  How he got started with his own ventures and businesses.

The second one is an interview with Kevin Pasko about his 'process' for designing with various software.
