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, November 12, 2023, and this is show number 966.
Last week I forgot to tell you that I was on Corkillers again with Tom Merritt and Brian Brushwood. This is a great podcast all about TV and movies, emphasizing what you want to watch when you want to watch, and how you want to watch. We talked about recent surveys of teens and young adults that found they would like less sex and romance in their content, and more friendships and platonic relationships. We discussed whether Martin Scorsese’s insistence that people sit through his 3-hour and 26-minute movie without an intermission is reasonable, and why Director David Fincher might not want to make a sequel to The Social Network. It was great fun and I felt like I had a lot to contribute in this episode. You can find Cordkillers in your podcatcher of choice – look for episode 478 or search for my name in the title. I’ve also made it easy for you by making the chapter title in the shownotes a direct link to this episode.
Jill from the Northwoods Talks Focus Modes for Emergencies (no blog post)
Jill from the Northwoods recently was called in the middle of the night by her friend’s parents. They were in an emergency situation and couldn’t get hold of their daughter. Jill is now making it one of her missions to educate people on how to use Focus Modes in iOS to make sure the people they love can contact them in an emergency while not having a phone that’s disturbing them in the middle of the night with silly notifications.
This is not a Focus Modes tutorial, but rather focuses on this one problem to be solved (see what I did there?)
I wanted the chance to ask Jill questions live so we did this as a conversation rather than a monologue, so there’s no accompanying blog post. You can, of course, read what we said in the show’s transcription.
If things are tight financially for you, I don’t want you to consider supporting the podcast financially. Every once in a while someone does that when they really shouldn’t and I feel super guilty about it. I like having the show not cost me money to produce, and I consider it a labor of love to create this content for you. If you can afford to support the show, it would be swell if you did to cover the folks who can’t afford it. I’d be happiest if we had lots and lots of tiny donations. A dollar a month from enough people is enough money, right? Consider going to podfeet.com/patreon and showing your support for the Podfeet Podcasts.
