I am glad you two are willing to put forth the effort to keep the podcast going.
We like the idea that there are projects focusing on phpBB that are not part of the core phpBB Team. We also like the idea that we can promote some of these independent projects.
While the Podcast is now hosted by team members and will find a home here on http://www.phpbb.com
, we'd like to see most of the independence preserved. This episode was published to the team at the same time as it was published to the rest of the community. In fact, I have not heard it yet. If it was the "official podcast", then we would have to check every episode for accuracy before it was published and it would probably lose some of its flair in the process.
Ultimately, it's just a title, and such things are mostly irrelevant. We'll see how well the unofficial status works out in the future
