Giving Podcasts a chance

Giving Podcasts a chance

Since my commute doesn’t have a good cellular connection I thought I should try giving podcasts a chance again.

So I am trying Stuff you should know. Since my website tag name is so similar I thought I’d give it a chance. So far they are pretty wordy. I like more facts than idle chat, so we will see what happens.

I wish radio stations would have downloadable chunks of songs that you can pick. When I was a kid Kasey Kasems top 40 is when I would record all the songs that I liked. Now we need something close to that so that kids can choose what songs they like to record as well. Even thought things were analog it was often more freedom than digital files.

Are there any Podcasts that you like that you think I might like? I would love to learn your ideas and preferences as well. I haven’t had much luck in finding podcasts in the past.

One of the things that I love about tapes is that you could record anything. Yes it was low fi but it was good enough. I would gladly trade high fidelity to be able to record anything. One of the downsides is that as things get more convenient they become less flexible.

For example the mac has a T2 chip which can lock out 3rd party repairs. It has some advantages in making security faster, but the downside is quite large. I don’t like that kind of lock in. Apple has some great technology but its control of everything is widening and a growing concern for me. I wonder when Apple will cross the line and stop working with any third party software/hardware. It is just a matter of time.

I understand the advantage of security in having things like the Apple app store and securing hardware. There is a balance however. I don’t know where the solution is, but I think we are giving up too much now in using Apple products.
