This is an absolute scream. You have to hear this!

Darcy and Holly are a blind couple with a podcast. In this “special episode” they take on a driving game that’s designed for the blind. But as Holly says, “friends don’t let friends drive blind”.

Is it funnier to me because I love driving games?

A special guest appearance

Deb Shadovitz and I intended to record a short wrapup of Macworld Expo for Victor Cajiao, host of the Typical Mac User podcast. We talked for an hour and figured Victor would edit us into a short segment. Instead, he posted the conversation as a special show on his feed. Check it out for thoughts on the keynote, and a few obscure show highlights. (Can there be an obscure highlight? Hmm.)

Google’s logo is in braille today

Big f ing deal!

For a more cogent and family-friendly response, I refer you to this post from Jeff Bishop. He’s absolutely right.

“Today is Louis Braille’s birthday and in celebration of that fact Google has made their logo done up in Braille characters. OK Google, nice, but why don’t you actually do something useful like fix your visual verification issues for blind computer users, now that would be a nice gift. Don’t worry, it won’t happen. I am afraid it is going to take court action to get Google to move. I sincerely hope I am wrong.”

Announcing the winner of the Shelly’s Co-Host For A Day contest. Also, I blather on and on and on about Portable Media Expo.

I’ve been christened Sandy the Squirrel by the crew from Borderline.

Podcast pickle live from the expo!

I’m part of Podcast Pickle’s live podcast from Portable Media Expo in Ontario, CA. If you’re at expo, come by at 11 AM on Saturday November 12 to watch me do a short show. If you’re not at expo, subscribe to the feed to hear all the podcasters doing their shows here. You will also be able to download shows from the Pickle page. I will add my segment to my feed as well.

Contesting the facts

Update: After this show was uploaded, we had two more contest entreas. Yea! I’ll do a short contest entry show tomorow or the next day.

My pleas for contest entries continue, I talk more about remodeling and iPods, and there’s even a baseball follow-up.

Enter the contest

Update: I’ve been asked whether the winner of the guest co-host contest will have a permanent gig or not. Actually, I’m looking for someone to co-host a single show to be recorded in early/mid-November.

It’s a wide-ranging show today, beginning with a big contest announcement, and rambling on through some tech, the saga of the Disabilities node, and rolling to s gentle stop after a personal podcast pick and some shout outs.

Smeagol: your friday podcat

Smeagol, pictured below, won the first Friday podcat poll. Thank you all for voting. Smeagol had twice the votes of Gremlin and Weasel. Ivar and Eric, who received no votes, are inconsolable.

You know that expression about nervous cats in rooms full of rocking chairs? Does Smeagol look nervous to you?
