Podcast Episode #1: It’s An Alpha, or We’ll Do It LiveFriday, September 21st, 2012
It wasn’t quite a disaster, but it came pretty close at times. My desktop seems to have an allergic reaction to microphones, so my connection cut out several times before swapping to a laptop seems to have fixed up the problem.
Between tech problems (and Dylan’s heroic efforts to fix them) we decide to piss everyone off. Our first topic is to pick fun at the strangely uninspiring iOS6 (especially its new Maps app) and Dylan gets into a monologue about skeumorphism (the worst of all morphs). After that we dive straight into the kind of territory only two white men can possibly do the worst, and discuss the topic of sexism by taking about a tweet by user experience superstar Whitney Hess wherein she takes men to task for calling women girls (and the conversation of tweets that followed).
Dylan kept it professional while I blindly forged through the minefield while describing my own experiences with the terminology.
You can listen to the show via 3rd Avenue Radio, which will make every episode of ours available via RSS and iTunes.
