  1. Unfinished Business 78: Beirut by Bus

    I’ve been looking forward to speaking with Sara Soueidan on this week’s episode of Unfinished Business for a long while, not least because I’m a huge, huge, fan of her work. She’s been writing what I consider to be the best articles about CSS and SVG. We talk about those, yes, but we also talk about what it’s like for her, living and working as a web developer in her home country of Lebanon. We discuss the preconceptions and misconceptions that people in the West have about Lebanon, its people and its customs. I think you’ll find what she has to say fascinating. I know I did.

  2. Organizing Conferences with Environments for Humans

    There are a lot of balls to juggle when running an event or conference: how does one get started? Ari Stiles and Christopher Schmitt of Environments for Humans gives us an in-depth look at in-person AND online conferences. They discuss how they got started, choosing topics and speakers, as well as sales, budgets, promotions and contingency planning.

  3. Unfinished Business 77: Dirty, filthy, paid ads

    A weekly discussion show about the business end, the sharp end of web, design and creative industries.

    Ashley Baxter’s back on Unfinished Business this week. We talk about the reasons why she’s speaking in public more and how it may help her to promote her new business. Speaking of promotion, we discuss her $99 tweet sponsoring experiment, how buying tweets works and whether it worked for her. We also talk about how to move on when you feel like you’ve reached a plateau, in business as well as in the gym.

  4. Unfinished Business 76: Two old farts Googling

    This week on Unfinished Business, impresario, organiser of Flash On The Beach and more recently Reasons To Be Creative, John Davey offers me some fatherly advice on how to handle a personal dilemma and what not to wear at Alex’s upcoming graduation. We talk about the Reasons To Be Creative conference, how he finds and why he chooses so many new speakers and his unusual elevator pitch approach.

  5. Unfinished Business 73: We’ve reached peak burrito

    A weekly discussion show about the business end, the sharp end of web, design and creative industries.

    Jeremy Keith joins me on this, episode 73 of Unfinished Business. Although I try to steer clean of provoking him by not talking about moon landings, we disagree about just about everything else. Fish tacos, things that scientists haven’t done that I think they should’ve and what makes advertising to fascinating to me and hateful to him. It’s a lively show. There are sparks. I think you’ll like it.

  6. Unfinished Business 69: King Arthur didn’t like machines

    A weekly discussion show about the business end, the sharp end of web, design and creative industries.

    On Unfinished Business this week, I’m joined by designer and artist, the one and only Brendan Dawes. Bren and I talk about data inspired art and his Cinema Redux pieces. As we can never get together and not discuss films, so we talk about the greatest westerns of all time, the True Grit remake and Django Unchained. Plus, being ‘men of a certain age’ we reminisce about childrens TV from the seventies and why the writers of The Banana Splits must have taken a lot of drugs.

  7. Unfinished Business 68: Rubbish at podcasting

    On Unfinished Business this week, and with us both fresh from the Net Awards, Laura Kalbag and I talk about our experiences there. I explain why I don’t feel at home in the web design industry as it is today and how its conversations no longer reflect my interests in design.

    After last week’s ‘giant’ misunderstanding about speaker fees, we also talk about the responsibilities that speakers have to themselves, to an audience and to an event and the people who’ve organised it. It’s a lively discussion. We talk about swearing, why private agreements between speakers and conferences should remain confidential and why speakers should play their part in supporting an event, before, during and after it.

    Laura, I and everyone who makes Unfinished Business, wants to say an enormous “thank you” to everyone who voted for our show and put it in the final five top podcasts of 2014 at the Net Awards.

  8. Let’s Make Mistakes 132: The Price of Doing Business

    Let’s talk about proposals. How much time should you put into them? How detailed should they be? And shouldn’t we be getting paid for that time. Superfriendly Dan Mall joins us to discuss these matters and others.

  9. Andrew Clarke and guests have Unfinished Business

    A weekly discussion show about the business end, the sharp end of web, design and creative industries.

    On this week’s Unfinished Business I’m joined by not one, but two guests to keep me out of trouble, Laura Kalbag and marathon runner Rachel Andrew. We talk about the fallout from last week’s news that publisher Five Simple Steps has closed, what this means for other niche publishers and for the authors who write for them.

    We talk about how the abrupt announcement of the closure could’ve been handled better and the lessons we might learn to help us in the future. Finally, we break down how advances and royalties work differently between small and large publishers and the reasons why authors might choose a publisher over self-publishing their books.

  10. Unfinished Business 63: From those wonderful folks who gave you Pearl Harbor

    Special guest Jeffrey Zeldman joins me on Unfinished Business this week to talk about how important is it today for designers to be able to tell stories and sell ideas to clients. We talk about whether designers need ‘empathy’ or strength of character and conviction in their ideas, whether the web needs ‘account menpeople and what it feels like when people you’ve mentored go their own way.

    It’s a packed show and as we both love advertising and Mad Men, we end by talking about my Don Draper depersonalisation disorder theory and what we expect and hope from the final season which starts next week. Even if you’ve not seen Mad Men, I think you’re going to like this episode.
