VMware Lifecycle Manager Podcast

I’ve been trying to find a good demo video of VMware’s Lifecycle Manager product without any luck. It looks like I’ll have to make one of my own in the next few weeks. During my search I did come across a good LCM podcast from VMware which gives a great overview of the product and its capabilities.
