    Now 14 weeks into 2020 and now 2 weeks into the isolation game and while the world has changed in many ways my life has not changed at all..

    In some places we are definitely heeded towards a dystopian future and in others people and communities are coming together to get though the challenge that has been placed in before us. As a race humans will survive and we will move into our new future but many sections of society will never be the same again.



    We now have a new term that will become the norm after all it takes about 2 weeks to develop a habit and about a month to solidify it. The new term is “Social Distancing” and it is anything but Social it is “Anti-social Distancing” but it is becoming the new norm



    So Relax people take a breath and realize that while our world is now changed forever we will get though it. Save your sanity and your Amygdala and find out why your not gonna die by listening to the No Agenda Show



    I have some news from the world of WordPress for you today as well as some great plugins.

    The world is a bit crazy right now from over worrying about a pandemic to banning hats at WordCamp. It seems people just don't stop and think anymore. If people took a few minutes to step back and consider situations then they will find more often than not things are not nearly as bad as it seems.

    I have a little bit of WordPress drama in the news today and it is always so much entertainment just sit back much some popcorn and read the comments always great fun.

    While the KungFlu may be of concern it is not nearly as bad as say the regular flu we deal with on an annual basis. Want to know why your not gonna die check out the No Agenda Show

Great information on plugins

I don't find all the plugins applicable (not using WooCommerce), but generally in a month there will be 1 to 3 great plugins that I will explore to see if they will fit into my sites ... also the discussion of various plugins plants seeds in my mind of what could be used in websites.

I just wanted to mention about your last contest and why I didn't enter ... I live on Bowen Island just off the coast of West Vancouver and while the plugin sounded great the maps were for the USA ... don't live there ... not sure I want to visit there anymore. I would have entered if there was an option to get the map for Canada or even BC instead of the USA.

Would love to contribute to your podcast, but currently all but one of the websites I manage are for non profits and I work on them for free ... hopefully in the future I will get some paying clients that will allow me to expand. So unfortunately all you can get from me is an iTunes review ... 5 dragons!

Keep up the great work ... love the new format and sounds.

AllanRocks  ,

Glad I found you!!

I can't tell you the time I search through the Wordpress repository looking for plugins.
I just found you guys a few days ago and after listening to a handfull of episodes I'm hooked.
Keep up the excellent work!!!

A must listen for Wordpress users.

@pegattricks ,

Love this podcast

This is one of four podcasts I listen to every week. I am fairly new to WP-this podcast is pretty jargon free so I can understand it. It's given me lots of ideas for extending my site and has confirmed some of the plugins I like too. I agree with one of your reviewers who said it solved problems he didn't know he had.

I like the way you give back by featuring longer interviews with other developers and featuring pros who provide good service on your job board.

BTW, the sound quality is excellent! Thanks, guys.
