One of the most common questions we get in regard to our popular podcasts is,

“What’s that catchy intro music?”

SpoolCast Crew: Cal TjaderSoul Sauce

Josh and Jared Show: Medeski Martin & WoodEnd of the World Party

Usability Tools Podcasts: Medeski Martin & WoodMami Gato

The Userability Podcast: HoneycutExodus Honey

All of these titles should also be available through iTunes, as well.

We license this music through ASCAP.

I found information at http://www.ascap.com/weblicense on how to do this.
