I think it looks awkward and potentially illegible if you try and cram it all into a flag.
I agree. And it probably wouldn't be t-shirt friendly.

I love the astronaut  :D

Is the 'Listen To ...' part meant to be on the back, or beneath the picture?

Shouldn't it say that it's a podcast and maybe what a podcast is?

Awesome job!

:mmmhmm:

If I have time in the next 50 years, I might take a crack at this. I don't have the needed programs to produce decent line art, and I don't want to steal Henning's thunder (his design is f-ing awesome), but I could do this just for fun.

Flags seem to best when they're simple-especially if it's going to be on a flag.

I did a simple mockup of what might be good to have for a flag distilling whats already going on in the website logo.



Just my 2 cents.
