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 and the fact he is releasing some of the great podcast drama and audio books he did “back in the day”.

Moving Websites – NaPodPoMo2019 – MDW331

Moving WordPress websites can be a pain.  It’s worth the trouble, but DANG! it can be a pain.


I have 4 of the 6 I need to move moved already. is the last one and I have one more that is still broken 🙁   But, I’m assured it wasn’t my fault and GoDaddy support is on it 🙂

Traverse City Weather (Alexa News Brief Skill and Daily Podcast)

I got a new Van.   A 2012 Dodge Grand Caravan.
I've been driving UBER XL with the new van the last couple of weekends.



TV Cable Cutter Update – Better Than Rabbit Ears! – MDW325

Just an update about my cable cutting project. I found an amplifier that I got a long time ago when I *thought* we were going to cut the cable. It allows me to power 2 TV's with the same antenna setup. I wired that up tonight and we get everything available over the air up here now. Kind of proud of myself 🙂

Also, as you might have noticed, I've been playing with some ad insertion tech from the company I work for. You may hear some “injected” audio (ads) in this show at least up to 7-19-19 After that, who knows what you might hear in those spots 🙂

I will have Barry Kantz on “Your Podcast” over at blubrry on Monday. Take a listen over at

Happy 4th of July to those in the US and Happy Canada Day (yesterday) as well!
