The Making of the Podcast… Podcast aka Look Ma, I’m on a Podcast.

In this episode we talk about how we lovingly bake each podcast in our EZ Bake oven.

Each episode is created by reaching a Skype call using Call Recorder for Skype and with the Blue Yeti Microphone.

Garageband

Then it is GarageBand‘ed together with our theme song and the intro, the outro, and our closing theme music. Then it is imported into Audacity where it is converted from Stereo to Mono.

Blue Yeti Microphone

Then it is uploaded to Amazon S3 cloud storage and the link is posted on the blog faithandtech.com using the WordPress plugin Bluburry PowerPress. Once it is published this updates our RSS feed. Eventually Apple iTunes and Google Play and Stitcher will figure out there is an update and will update the listings so you can see our podcast and listen to the latest or the oldest or whatever.

Do you know where I am? Ask my Cell Phone.

In this episode we talk about Privacy or lack thereof on our cell phones and other mobile devices. Bad apps that track you. Bad apps that don’t respect you. And of course, how the government can use your cell phone to track you because you can’t turn off location tracking 100% on your phone. Did you know Verizon has a Super Cookie to track you and link to your phone for advertisers?
