Hi, this is Allison Sheridan of the NosillaCast Apple Podcast, hosted at, a technology geek podcast with an EVER so slight Apple bias. Today is Sunday, March 31, 2019, and this is show number 725.

Macstock logoI’m starting to get super excited about Macstock coming up on July 27th and 28th in Chicago. If you’ve been thinking about attending but haven’t signed up yet, you can use discount code “podfeet” to get $10 off the already discounted Early Bird ticket price. That’s $169 for the full weekend of activities. The Early Bird pricing will end at the end of the April so it’s a great time to sign up.

I’m going to be speaking again this year, but I’m looking forward even more to hearing what everyone else is going to teach me at Macstock. I’m also really looking forward to meeting new friends and hugging old friends again this year. Check it out at

Chit Chat Across the Pond

This week on Chit Chat Across the Pond, I asked Jeff Gamet to come on the show and talk about his new job as a TextExpander Evangelist for Smile. We talk about some of the cool things you can do with TextExpander that you may not know about, how TextExpander works on Windows now, how awesome Jean MacDonald was when she was in this job and even funny snippet abbreviations. I don’t normally have people come on the show to talk about their products but I’m such a fan of TextExpander and I find Jeff such delightful company that I wanted to combine the two for the most fun.

You can find this episode in your podcatcher of choice under Chit Chat Across the Pond Lite or the full Chit Chat Across the Pond feed. As always you can also play it directly from Episode #588.
