Pocket Sized Podcast 128: Rantown USA

Subscribe in iTunes

I’m sorry, but this is a bit of a rant cast. Ronnie rants about the how messed up his attempts to buy an iPhone 5s were. Scott rants about the photo and video problem in the iOS world, and then follows that up with rants about Evernote and the iOS 7 app switcher. Also, an App Folder on Boinx PhotoPresenter. Can’t stand your iPad? John Nemo can, in World’s Shortest Reviewcast, with one iPad case and one iPad stand.

Pocket Sized Podcast Wants YOU!

Have you ever wanted to be a podcaster? Do you love iOS, apps, and iPhones and iPads? Do you have a good sense of humor and a voice that makes people sell their homes to be near you? Got a decent mic and earphones? Well, Pocket Sized Podcast wants YOU to become rich and famous!

But if that fails, how’d you like to try out to be co-host of Pocket Sized Podcast?

No, Peter and I haven’t started sending each other death threats, and Peter didn’t join a podcast network with no sponsors. Peter’s still my friend. He’d better be, or I’ll sic Nilson on him. But I would like to find a co-host who wants to podcast about the topics Pocket Sized Podcast covers on a weekly basis with me.

I’m looking for someone that fits a lot of criteria. Basically, I want a flying unicorn for a co-host.

  • Casual, conversational style (unlike myself)
  • Tolerable voice (unlike myself)
  • Clean audio (good mic and headphones)
  • Preferably able to record your side of the conversation (has Audio Hijack Pro or Skype Call Recorder or similar)
  • Sense of humor (otherwise I’m going to laugh at you and tell you I’m laughing with you)
  • Technical enough to have a good grasp of iOS, iOS devices, and wide app experience. Knowing basic security concepts, having an ability to learn new apps or iOS settings, and being comfortable with the why and how of things would be nice
  • Good chemistry with me (this is almost impossible as I am unintentionally anti-social and impossible to get along with)
  • Are willing to record weekly on Saturday, Sunday, or Monday. Obviously there will be vacations and you might even have a life, but in general, weekly.
  • Are willing to help come up with topic ideas, play with apps enough to give them a proper review, and generally be a part of the team. This is not a HUGE time commitment, but it is a commitment.

If you’ve listened to Pocket Sized Podcast and thought I CAN DO THIS A LOT BETTER THAN THIS BABBLING MORON! then you’re probably right, and would you please email me a demo recording of yourself discussing a favorite app to pocketpodcast@gmail.com?

Don’t overly compress the file, a five to ten minute AIFF or 128 – 256 Kbps MP3 or M4a file is fine. I want to be able to hear what you sound like. Also, if it’s not good quality, I can’t rearrange all the words into an incriminating file that the NSA will believe is real. So there’s that.

One thing I do want to say in all seriousness is that whatever decision I make, it is NOT a value judgement on anyone who submits an audio clip but is not chosen. I know a lot of tremendous people who I respect highly who I think would not make great co-hosts of this podcast because of stilted chemistry recording with me, bad audio quality, or whatever. I will be picky, but it’s about an overall fit for this particular podcast that I’m looking for. Please understand that. I still love you, and if you send me fruitcake for Christmas, I’ll thank you profusely and never tell you that I threw it at one of the bike-stealing neighborhood kids to knock him unconscious until the police could arrive. But I did.

Get cracking, kids. Let’s move Pocket Sized Podcast into the future in style.
