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, December 31, 2023, and this is show number 973. Yes, the last show of 2023, which I’m guessing most of you will hear in 2024! I’m here by my lonesome tonight without the live audience, but we must soldier on!

Before we kick into the show, I wanted to let the live audience know that we will NOT have a live show on Sunday, January 7th as Steve and I will be at CES in Las Vegas. I was kind of handy-wavy about this at the end of last week’s show because I hadn’t yet looked at the calender to see where I’d be. Sorry about that and I’ll miss you but we’ll be back with tales of adventure and lots of great interviews the following week.
