I'm running a little experiment every Friday at noon: a weekly live webcast that'll run down the top five innovation economy stories of the week. Each Friday, I have a different co-host. And in addition to discussing that week's big stories, we talk about some of the events that we're looking forward to in the week ahead.

I hope you'll tune in, or watch once it's archived, and serve up some feedback. If you're watching live, you can use the Ustream client to send us messages — like suggesting stories that we've missed, or events that you're planning to attend. We'll try to weave those into the webcast, too.

You can watch the latest episode above, or at Ustream.

I've got a few co-hosts lined up, including:

April 13: Antonio Rodriguez of Matrix Partners (@antrod)
April 20: TechStars Boston managing director Katie Rae (@ktrae)
April 27: Daphne Zohar, co-founder of PureTech Ventures (@daphnezohar)
May 4: Dan Primack, Fortune Magazine's venture capital reporter/blogger (@danprimack)
May 11: Laura Fitton, Inbound Marketing Evangelist, HubSpot (@Pistachio)
May 18: Week off
May 25: Cambridge Innovation Center CEO Tim Rowe (@rowe)
June 1: Rudina Seseri of Fairhaven Capital (@rudina11)
June 8: C.A. Webb, executive director of the New England Venture Capital Association (@ca_webb)
June 15: Scott Johnson, managing partner of New Atlantic Ventures (@VC_Scott)
June 22: Live from TEDxBoston
June 29: Kate Castle of Flybridge Capital Partners (@FlybridgeCap)

We'll be webcasting from the Venture Café at Cambridge Innovation Center, so if you'd like to come be in the, um, live studio audience, you can do that, too.
