Episode 47: Activism and Technology with Idalin Bobé
Idalin is someone we’ve been trying for a while now to get on the show and talk to. Her talk at StrangeLoop this past Fall has been on our minds and a topic of conversation since. Her work in community building and outreach through technology is inspiring but her strong voice and perspective is something we feel like our community of technologists needs. We got to talk about her feelings on the tech community in general, her roots in activism and tech, and more.
There was a little technical difficulty with this episode so please excuse AQ doing his s****y Ira Glass impression.
Music: Beyoncé “Formation”, Chosen by Idalin.

Customer ReviewsSee All
When I saw the title of this podcast, I expected it to be about drinking and computology. Unfortunately, I made a category error. You see, the “rye” in the title apparently refers to the bread, not of whiskey. And they barely talk about programming at all. Mostly just cooking.
A better title for this podcast would be “Dinnertime Marauders”.
One does not simply listen
I know, with most podcasts, you subscribe, download some episodes and give them a listen. That’s great and maybe you’d like to do that with Beats, Rye & Types but you’d be missing out. To fully enjoy this excellent podcast, I recommend putting on your most comfortable outfit (maybe nothing at all) and sinking into a deep chair. You may want to enhance your experience with a preferred beverage or perhaps enjoy a smoke. Be mindful to turn off those fancy speed and voice boosting effects that some of these podcast players like to have on.
Word to the wise though, do not go shopping after or while listening to this. You’ll find yourself carrying a crippling amount of groceries home. It’s much cheaper to plan ahead, having everything you need to fix a sandwich or bake a pizza ready to go.
