Hi, this is Allison Sheridan of the NosillaCast Apple Podcast, hosted at Podfeet.com, a technology geek podcast with an EVER so slight Apple bias. Today is Sunday, December 18, 2022, and this is show number 919.
I think I’m in good shape to produce next week’s show, and it will probably come out on Friday the 23rd of December. To remind everyone, even though Michael Westbay will be sad, there won’t be a live show on Sunday as it’s Christmas night. This is the last live show of the year!
The show for New Year’s day will be a bit dicey for me to pull together, so if you have any reviews cooking that would be handy dandy. I may save some of the I’m Still Using It segments for that week if I have enough.
But I’m also here to ask you to look a bit farther out and see if you can pull together some reviews for Bart and Allister. They’re going to be doing the shows for the middle to end of February while Steve and I will be in Antarctica. I really appreciate them doing this and the only way it happens is with your help.
This week I had the great delight of being on the Cord Killers podcast with hosts Tom Merritt and Brian Brushwood. They have been my inspiration in finally cutting the cord here at Casa Sheridan. I wanted to go on the show and have them pat me on my little punkin’ head. I was acting like I’d made fire on the 10th anniversary of when Brian cut the cord.
But they didn’t make fun of me at all. In fact, I got to teach them about a really nifty tool called Channels that helps make watching live linear TV from a streaming service a much better experience. I’m actually going to give you all the nitty-gritty detail about Channels in this episode, but the discussion is really fun on Cord Killers so I suggest you go listen (or watch) episode 435 – Little TV Guy (w/ Allison Sheridan) at cordkillers.com too.
A lot of wonderful people support the work we do here at the Podfeet Podcasts through Patreon, but some people prefer to be more active in their support. The most delightful Christoph Trusch chooses to support the shows by actively going to PayPal once a quarter and making a donation. I love that he does this because it helps the show a LOT, but also when I get the email it gives me a chance to chat with him and catch up. It’s nice to be reminded that he’s still out there getting value from the shows. If you’d like to actively support our work, please consider going to podfeet.com/paypal and choose an amount that you feel represents the value you get from the shows.
I was chatting with our buddy Ron and he mentioned how much he’s digging Stage Manager. I thought I was the only one! So I asked him to jump on a call with me and chat about why we like it so much and how/when we use it. We also talked about who we think it’s for and the feeling on iPad vs. Mac. I thought it was a really fun discussion.
There’s no blog post for this conversation, but the auto-generated transcript is available as part of this episode of the NosillaCast and there’s a link to our Google Doc for the conversation.
That’s going to wind this up for this week. Did you know you can email me at [email protected] any time you like? If you have a question or a suggestion just send it on over. You can follow me on Twitter at @podfeet and you can find me on Mastodon at @[email protected]. 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 quarterly donation like Christoph at podfeet.com/paypal.
