More Simplification Talk – MDW340



Update from an easy chair in a snow storm in Northern Michigan.

Simplifying things that have become a personal pain the ass has been a good thing over the last few months.

  1. I’ve cut down the podcasting hobby to this show (Mike Dell’s World), Podcast Insider and Traverse City Weather.     Podcast Help Desk will remain online and I *may* add episodes once in a while.
  2. I’ve cut down obligations in Ham Radio.   No longer am I the District EC for the 7th district of Michigan.
  3. We cut the cable several months ago and went back to an Antenna for TV.
  4. Simplifying my diet.
  5. Other ways to just keep things as simple as possible.

Castblaster, Rodecaster and UberCaster Blast From Podcasting Past – MDW332



I started out wanting talk about another subject and then was talking about the music I was play on the “castblaster” (really a Rodecaster Pro) and that sent me down Memory lane back to when Castblater was the software of choice for Podcasters “Live to the Hard drive podcasting”  🙂

Also talk about my friend Mark Yoshimoto Nemcoff  http://wordsushi.com and the fact he is releasing some of the great podcast drama and audio books he did “back in the day”.
