Best (and fast) professional genealogy education
Although I have been passionately seeking genealogy education, and involved in genealogy professionally since 2007, I learned so much from this podcast that I have not gotten (or only have gotten portions of) in several genealogy college courses , conferences, etc. This podcast goes deeper into the niches and professional matters of genealogy more effectively than any other resource I can think of at the moment (especially in the time it takes to listen to one podcast). I hope episodes will start back up in the future. I have actually started to take the time to contact a couple of the professionals to ask for more detail on a particular topic from the podcast, and delved into things I was never able to get an answer about before.
