Hi, this is Allister Jenks of the NosillaCast Apple Podcast, hosted at Podfeet.com, a technology geek podcast with an EVER so slight Apple bias. Today is Sunday, July 17, 2022, and this is show number 897.
Allison and Steve are in Iceland — land of volcanoes and glaciers! While they’re off enjoying themselves with some seriously long days — I wonder when gin and tonic time happens if the sun only sets after 11pm? — Bart Busschots and I have been drafted in to keep this factory we call the NosillaCast going for a couple of weeks.
Before they left, Allison recorded an episode of Chit Chat Across the Pond with long time NosillaCastaway Mark Pouley of Twin Lakes Images. You may have heard of the Starlink satellites, and you may know that they provide internet services for areas that can’t get traditional copper or fibre services; or at least can’t get good service with those technologies. Mark Pouley knows more because he is a subscriber to the Starlink internet service. He chats with Allison about the strengths and weaknesses of the Starlink system. I had no idea how it was different to any other satellite system, but Mark explains it is quite different. You can take a listen on Chit Chat Across the Pond episode 737.
That’s going to wind things up for this week. Did you know you can email Allison Sheridan at [email protected] any time you like? If you have a question or a suggestion just send it on over. You can follow her on Twitter at @podfeet. If you want to join the conversation, you can join our Slack community at podfeet.com/slack where you can talk to me and all of the other lovely NosillaCastaways. Remember, everything good starts with podfeet.com. You can support the show at podfeet.com/patreon or with a one-time donation at podfeet.com/paypal. And if you want to join in the fun of the live show, you’re going to have to wait till July 31st when Allison and Steve are back. But when that date rolls around, head on over to podfeet.com/live on Sunday nights at 5pm Pacific Time and join the friendly and enthusiastic NosillaCastaways. Thanks for listening, and stay subscribed.
