Galactica hands-on

I really, really recommend anyone who loves the new Battlestar Galactica as much as I do listen to Ron Moore's podcasts.

Although not the most slickly produced of commentaries - Moore smokes his way through the episodes, attempting to make himself heard over gardeners, traffic and wild animals, battling the acoustics of his living room - his deconstructions of his baby only hours after it first airs are an excellent resource. Offering insights on all aspects of the show's production (usually with particular focus on the writing) the 'casts are informative, analytical, slightly spoilerific and not too gushing.

And the best thing is you don't have to wait for the DVDs or spend extra money to listen to them. In fact, coupled with David Eick's behind-the-scenes videoblog of the show's genesis, sci-fi are basically offering a free TV Production 101 to anyone who's interested. You should subscribe immediately.
