Allison started podcasting in May of 2005, just 7 months after podcasting was invented, and her primary show, the NosillaCast has come out every week without missing an episode since late 2005. She now produces Chit Chat Across the Pond as a separate podcast that also comes out weekly.
Allison has a Master’s of Science in Mechanical Engineering from UCLA with an emphasis in Kinematics. Her love of technology really took off when she and her husband Steve bought a 512K Mac in 1984.
All audio content and associated blog posts are created and edited by Allison Sheridan.
During industry events such as NAB, CES, Macworld, CSUN’s Assistive Technology Conference, Mac Mania Cruises, interviews and presentations are conducted by Allison Sheridan and recorded/edited/produced by NosillaCast videographer Steve Sheridan. Associated blog posts and social media presence also managed by Steve Sheridan.
Her partner in crime on many of the shows is Bart Busschots who co-hosts Chit Chat Across the Pond every other week. He brings the propeller-beanie style episodes with his series Taming the Terminal and Programming By Stealth. He’s a fabulous instructor and keeps his detailed tutorial show notes over at bartbusschots.ie.
In addition to hosting her own shows, Allison has been a guest on MacBreak Weekly, Daily Tech News Show, Clockwise, Cordkillers, SMR Podcast, Tech’s Message, Ritual Misery and The Productive Woman Podcast.
She’s also creates video tutorials for ScreenCasts Online, and is a freelance writer for ScreenCasts Online Magazine. She’s been a speaker on the Mac Geek Cruise, Macworld, Macstock, and at many Southern California Mac User Groups.
Allison dedicates a lot of time to learning and talking about assistive technologies especially for the blind. In her spare time, she exercises like a demon.
Without the support of Steve, none of this would be possible.
