NC #959 iOS 17 Video Tips from Jacob Woolcock, TrueNAS by PDXKurt, Notion by Jill from the Northwoods, Kia Sportage EV with Steve Ewell

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 Wednesday, September 20th, 2023, and this is show number 959.

Since the show is coming out super early on a Wednesday, this is your hint that there will be no live show on Sunday September 24th. We’ve got a great show this week because of some awesome NosillaCastaways. PDXKurt will tell us about TrueNAS, Jill from the Northwoods will tell us more about how she uses Notion to manage her podcasts, and then we’ll have an interview I did with Steve Ewell about his decision process on replacing his gas car with a planet-friendly vehicle. He’s a data-driven guy and it’s really interesting walking through how he came to a very different answer than what I chose. But first, let’s start with a tiny tip that’s also not by me.

Tiny Tips on iOS 17 But Not From Me

=== insert audio for Personal Voice

I don’t think it will replace me any time soon, and it’s not quite as good as the Eleven Labs voice I used when I lost my voice back in show #930, but considering this was all done on device, it’s pretty impressive how much it sounds like me.

Getting Your Feet Wet with TrueNAS — by PDXKurt

This is great, Kurt, and I know a lot of NosillaCastaways are nerdy enough to want to try this out. It sounds really fun!

Let’s hear from Jill from the Northwoods next about Notion.

Get Organized with Notion — by Jill from the Northwoods

I have to tell you that having a friend like Jill who finds cool solutions to problems you didn’t know you had is super valuable. She’s been teaching me what she learns about Notion, and what I’ve learned has become invaluable. I don’t do half of what she does, but she taught me how to set up a database for the articles for each show.

Then she showed me I could view it in a calendar so I could drag and drop articles around by date. When all these little holidays came up, she showed me how to create a database view that creates little cards by date. For each article I enter the estimated time it will take in the show, and then I can drag them around to make sure I don’t end up with a 2-hour show followed by a 20 minute show.

Support the Show

I talk a lot about supporting the show financially but if you can’t justify becoming a patron or a one time donation through PayPal, consider supporting the show by doing reviews like PDXKurt, Jill, and Steve Ewell. It gives me the gift of time and that’s often more valuable than money.
