I think I forgot to mention this last week, but Episode 4 of the Penny Arcade/PvP/Me D&D Podcast is available, and the artwork is super awesome. Seriously. I'm not just saying that because the drawing was inspired by something I did during the session, or because it features everyone's favorite eladrn avenger.
Okay, maybe I am, just a little bit ... but it's still awesome.
Episode five is in iTunes, and is a massive 68 minutes long, which will make people (like me) who were sad when they (we) saw that episode four was just 25 minutes long. It looks like they haven't updated the podcast page at Wizards, yet, though, so I don't know what the artwork is going to look like. Reader TheOceaneer used URL-mangling fu to find the link. Holy carp, the artwork is hilarious.
Also, I noticed that they have links for all eight episodes of the first podcast, which you may want to listen to, if you're enjoying the current series:

The first series of podcasts did more than entertain me and get me excited to play 4E. Listening to different DMs handle different encounters with three players of widely varying levels of experience gave me a perspective on running and playing the game that I wouldn't have otherwise had, and when it was over, I'd gained a level in gaming.
