173: You should tweet about that (7 times ‘a charm)

Welcome to 2011! Hopefully the holidays and extended vacation from CPB makes our return that much more meaningful to you.

We connected with Derek K. Miller, co-host of the fantastic Inside Home Recording (IHR) podcast, over Skype on January 12 to kick off the new calendar year. It’s a decidedly relaxed way to get back into a rhythm.

TOPICS

  • A weather update (among other things, it’s snowing everywhere but Ottawa and Montreal)
  • PAB2011 planning underway
  • Finding a new co-host for IHR
  • Derek’s music (also available on iTunes and CDBaby, a bargain at any price)
  • Lipgloss and Laptops (and podcasting networks Four Sevens and Podshow)
  • Shiny shoes
  • Steven Spielberg, Fox News and Podcast the Movie

TECHNOLOGY TALK

  • Replacing the batteries in your M-Audio Microtrack recorders (now discontinued)
  • On a future episode? Derek’s father on soldering to minimize damage to your circuit board
  • Cassette tape and Tascam Portastudios, original and now iPad version
