To celebrate the 100th episode of the iSeekGolf Podcast we thought it would be fitting to take a look at how time shifted audio has changed the media landscape. There are believed to be more than 660,000 podcasts in the world already with the number going daily and if you're into golf there is no shortage of options regardless of your interest. Regular guest Mike Clayton joins Rod Morri and Adrian Logue to discuss his own podcast resume and his thoughts on the medium more broadly while all three share some of the shows in their regular podcast rotation (both golf and non golf).

It finally happened! The inaugural ISG Pod golf and live recording day was a small affair but a big success with nine loyal listeners turning out to sample the ongoing works at the Bonnie Doon Golf Club in Sydney. There were plenty of laughs and lots of fun on the course and the recording session with Mike Clayton afterwards was equally entertaining and informative. Among the topics covered: How members cope with an eight year renovation project; how modern equipment has changed thinking about course design; why dogs should be allowed on golf courses and why architecture is important.

In the wake of the exceedingly popular Spirit of St Andrews episode, many listeners asked that Robert Hunter's The Links go under the microscope and now here it is. This 1926 classic is one of the most important books ever written on golf course architecture and with the help of special guest Mike Clayton we delve into what makes it a must read for any architecture enthusiast. Its long, but its good, so we make no apologies and hope you enjoy.
