Well, tonight I put myself on the hot seat! Honestly, this was a combination of a celebration of over 1,000 listens so far - also, I had planned on a recap episode after 10 episodes anyway... AND I screwed up again and didn't have a guest. On this episode of the podcast, I open up a bit about why I am doing the podcast and some other projects I am working on... also, I do a little recap of each episode so far... kinda like a highlight reel.
I hope you enjoy this as much as I have enjoyed it so far.
Bran is a 19-year-old college sophomore studying gender studies at Mount Holyoke College in Western Massachusetts. They are non-binary and trans, and are interested in activism and social justice. In their free time, they enjoy knitting, sewing, and reading as many books as they can carry home from the library. Bran has known the Baty-Barrs since before birth, and grew up with the kids through childhood, martial arts, and marching band.
Happy New Year! Today we talk about the Apple battery controversy, Umbraco Slack, Sophia the Robot, tech resolutions and the iMac Pro.
Owen is an 18-year-old high school graduate who is a second-degree black-belt, crew member on a sailboat for 2 summers, two-year member of the blue stars world class drum and bugle corps color guard, and works 3 jobs teaching at 2 high schools and making coffee.
Bob was incredibly lucky to secure him as a last minute guest on the show, My Friends Are Amazing, due to Owens incredibly busy schedule.
Josh and I covered everything from sleeping in a hammock to being a sound engineer for large touring bands... Josh is a college Junior and is studying music business at Elmhurst College. He has always had a love for music and has recently discovered a love for the outdoors. In his free time, he likes to listen to music and spend time with people. He is employed as a Barista and a sound engineer in his hometown of Batavia IL... oh yeah... and he is my oldest son.
I think the show is finally starting to establish a personality and plant our flag on what types of events we will cover and discussions we will have. I also think we have found our true running length... looks like we are about a 40 minute show This week we covered the Net Neutrality, Star Wars, our best of 2017 picks and of course we had quiz time, which is my favorite segment.

What is there left to be said about John Coulter that history books will not reveal to us? In a world of gray and black John Coulter is a bright red tassel. He lives by the ancient Tibetan philosophy,”don’t start none won’t be none.”
He is an Eagle Scout, a 4th° black belt, a 30-year truck driver, a standup comic, a loving and devoted husband and friend, and one time in Tasmania, he punched Russel Crowe in the face. The conundrum that is John COULTER is simply unraveled by the phrase, “let’s get a beer.” Congratulations to everyone that has the pleasure of meeting him.
This week we used OBS Studio for the tech behind the scenes. The episode was great and covered bitcoin, the Wait Until 8th campaign, Umbraco and more!
