Before we get started, a couple of housekeeping notes. This may be late notice but the live chatroom will be open for all during the WWDC Keynote on Monday, June 10th at 10 AM Pacific Time. If you want to come, just head to where you can log into our Discord server. It’s great fun and I hope you’ll join us.

We also have a quick request from Steve:

Hey NosillaCastaways, this is Steve. As you may have heard, Allison’s podcast is coming up on its 1000th episode soon. Now would be a great time to send in a short audio recording if you’d like to acknowledge Allison’s accomplishment or say anything interesting about any of the Podfeet podcasts. We’ll be playing your clips on the 1000th episode, so please send your input to [email protected] by June 23rd. Looking forward to hearing from you.

My View of the Bartender App Kerfuffle

Hide Your Menu Bar Items with Hidden Bar – by Physics Nerd Graeme

Whether you share my view on the Bartender kerfuffle or not, it’s always a good idea to keep our eyes open for different solutions to the same problem. Physics Nerd Graeme decided to give an app called Hidden Bar a try and sent in a review for us.

Support the Show

Recently I got a delightful treat. It was a notification that the lovely Neil Gilmour had sent me a spot of money via PayPal. It was a lift to my day not just that he was supporting the work we do here at the Podfeet Podcasts, but it let me know he’s out there listening. It’s easy to think of the audience as being just those folks who’ve chosen to communicate with me in some way so it’s nice to be reminded that the vast majority of you are out there listening without providing commentary back to me.

Speaking of commentary, the wonderful George from Tulsa made yet another donation through PayPal as well. He contributes content, sends me adorable photos of his granddaughters and supports the show. He’s awesome.

If you’d like to be lovely like Neil and awesome like George, just go to and show us some love.
