PodCast42 Interview

I had the honor and opportunity to be the first TechMover segment on PodCast42 yesterday. It was my first experience with a one-take, no editing, zero prep interview and it was a lot of fun. I picked out a few errors when listening to it, and I think I learned how to avoid many of them in the future.

It was a great experience.

Thank you Phil.

101 Unuseless Japanese Inventions

I really want to get this.

Here is some of what I found out:
