I am a big fan of the QSC Touchmix. Keep in mind, this device really marks the change in Live sound mixing. Sound professionals would haul in a heavy box consisting of a mixer, compressors, gates and EQs to do what this mixer the size of a laptop can. And…

It’s all about that Pokemon-Go app, isn’t it? Not really, but we will be talking heavily about how this game has changed the mobile rules. If you think it can’t get better / worse, you are grossly mistaken! Morning Geeks! Episode 12 Show Notes: – Check…

Cool Things You Should Have During a Power Outage #geekout #poweroutage

so your summer is going well, but that big storm hits and you lose power in the house. Sometimes it’s for an hour. Other times it could go all night. But fear not, because there are some simple things you can do to get through a hot, sweltering night and…

QOTD - Where do you Podcast Not all of us have studios that we can go to record a show. For some it's the basement. I remember Ice T talking about how he simply puts his rig up on the kitchen table.

For some podcasters, it's about the open road, so whatever room they are in, they will podcast. I have been known to go outside and record to get some wind noise and birds chirping in the background.

Even +Todd Cochrane has talked about his house rule to be quiet during his shows. I also have an Internet rule so others don't suck up the bandwidth.

So is your ideal podcast location the silent desolation of a basement or extra bedroom, or do you just put the mic on the table and whatever happens - happens?

QOTD - Keeping Cool The temps are going to rise this next week. I know my Central Air is working overtime keeping my house cool. I also have shut all my storm windows and sealed the others to keep hot air from coming in so I can do my shows without beads of sweat pouring off my face.

What do you do to keep your room cool when you have the computers on and podcasting?

What's worse for us than fan or A/C noise is 'neighbour noise' it's common in Spain to have neighbours above, below and either side, so when the baby cries next door, or the lady upstairs puts her high heels on, it's a toss up whether to push on with the recording or crack out the beers with my co-host.

First Look with @seth_leitman on the @BMW i8 #hybridelectric #geekout

The BMW i8 is a remarkable sports car. The car is a plug-in hybrid that debuted in 2013 at the NAIAS in Detroit. I was there with Green Living Guy Seth Leithman looking over the car. We geeked out over the design and charge-ability. The prototype only had…

QOTD - Pokemon Crazy on my new Morning Geeks! show, I will be deep-diving into the numbers and how people are using the app. Are you going to talk about the new app in your #podcast? How will you go about it - as a news story, a funny side-note, or another approach?

One of my favorite spots to get work done. Great food (Sonoma Chicken Sandwich is one of my favs), many choices of coffee and tea. Yola's is also active in Social Media Breakfast, so it's a destination to meet with clients and interact. WiFi is free and a little more secure than the others around Madison. Staff is friendly and will help you if you need it. Walk up and say hi to Lance and Lisa.

Awesome pizza, and many good extras! If you want a specialty pizza like the Margarita, Chicken Alfredo, etc. They are the place to go. If you order online, the system is a little buggy. I had to restart my pizza order a couple times. There was no way to delete the order otherwise.

I enjoy AJ Bombers burgers whenever I can. They have some great twists on the craft of making a hamburger, and their other sandwiches are pretty tasty, too. Need some peanuts? Their bombers can get you a bowlfull in a jiffy. And they're a lot of fun to watch.
