Just for the record -- I didn't write the form element integration for Views, it was mostly the work of bojanz and Damien Tornoud (but also much inspired by previous work by the Commerce Guys).

I'm just the messenger. :-)

Great podcast, as always.

PS: I would very much like to hear a few arguments for using Eva or Views attach instead of Page manager + Views content panes. (I do have one or two arguments, but I think Eva/Views attach really must be compared to the framework of Page manager.

I must admit I have not gotten to dive into (non-panels) Page Manager - I know you have some screencasts about it, maybe we should have you on soon to make the case?

This isn't especially relevant to this particular podcast, but I want to let you guys know how much I like your podcast. I'm very happy when I see there's a new one.

But I'm especially pleased right now, because I just got back from DrupalCamp Colorado. I had no plan to go, never even thought about it. I'm an independent developer and thus stingy with my conference money. So when I heard from the podcast that DrupalCamp Colorado was only $35, I got right on it. Frequent Flyer miles, stayed with a friend, and got 2 days of outstanding information. I owe it to you.

Plus, you always have good guests, don't waste a lot of time on self-aggrandizing blather, and I love your sites of the week, module ideas, etc.

P.S. Andrew's Module of the Day was awesome. I wish he'd do more.
