Podcast for the macintosh 25th anniversary

The Guardian has a great podcast on the 25th anniversary of the macintosh. They discuss with such appe luminaries as Steve Wozniak and Andy Hertzfeld. Being a user, fan boy of Apple its worth a listen, and was nice that Jeff Raskin gets a mention as the creator of the Macintosh. If you have ever enjoyed some of the great books or films on Apple I would highly recommend it.
By the way it would have been interesting if they had discussed where Apple are going now that Steve Jobs is ill in more detail.
