To create this podcast, your hosts Nick Turner and Joel Crane have tapped their "telephone" conversation with the idea that maybe, just maybe, someone else on planet Earth will find the discussion entertaining. But let's face it: this conversation was probably going to take place anyway. Expect topics to vary enormously, from financial technology, 3D printing, macOS, Android, and of course, Wi-Fi, given that we both "work" (or more accurately, operate) in the Wi-Fi industry.

    Relatively Humid

    Relatively Humid

    In this episode, Nick and Joel cover a range of 3D-printing topics, from the Prusa MINI’s shortcoming and upgradeability, to managing humidity in filament with filament dryers. Also, let it be known that Nick’s flex filament is more hard core and better than Joel’s flex filament.

    Accidental Wi-Fi Podcast

    Accidental Wi-Fi Podcast

    Nick and Joel get dangerously close to actually recording a Wi-Fi podcast episode. This time, they're unwinding after the Wireless LAN Pros Conference (WLPC) in Prague, Czechia. They discuss what the conference is, what they enjoy about it, and how the "Deep Dive" classes that they taught went. Also, Joel still hasn't fixed his AirPods.

    MacBook Mini

    MacBook Mini

    Nick and Joel didn’t mean to record anything, but their impromptu microphone test was going so well that they decided to turn it into an episode! In this "mini" episode, Joel and Nick discuss the new M3 MacBook Pro, the possibility of running macOS Sonoma on very old Macs, and problems with Joel’s AirPods Pro. Also, a nice guy named Jiri gave Joel an Apple Watch stand that looks like a vintage Macintosh, and he can't get over it.

    Shower Shrooms

    Shower Shrooms

    Warning: audio problems lie ahead, again. The timing of the issues is pretty hilarious too, because Joel has a completely new microphone. Nick has posted a blog, and has discovered the magic of Shower Shrooms (but it’s not what you think). Both Joel and Nick are excited about Markdown (again), and Joel loves and hates his new smart TV. Plus, a bit about the current state of social media platforms.

    Prusa MK4

    Prusa MK4

    Prusa has announced the successor to the Original Prusa MK3S+! In this episode, Nick and Joel discuss the new features on the Original Prusa MK4, as well the positioning of the printer against the competition. Also, Nick attempts to record in StreamYard over a 5G tether, which has some... results.

    Note: At times, things with the 5G tether get rough, and there is some pretty horrible latency that causes us to keep stepping on each other. Sorry about that. Again.
