    This week’s guest is Jeremy Cherfas, a biologist and a science journalist based in Rome who is particularly interested in food and agriculture. He produces Eat This Podcast and even did a 32-episode microcast series about bread and wheat called Our Daily Bread for a daily podcast challenge.


    We talk about the IndieWeb and share some ideas on how to get started in podcasting.

    Joel Mearig celebrated the 101st episode of his microcast I’m Talkin’… this week. 🎉 We talk about how to get started with microcasting and how to keep it going, week after week. Joel uses Wavelength, the podcasting app from Micro.blog, which allows you to record, do simple edits, and then upload to your microblog.

    81: Chris Aldrich, aka @c

    Chris Aldrich is a modern-day cyberneticist, a trained biomedical and electrical engineer, and a talent manager/producer who has a “horrible IndieWeb hobby that probably takes up more time than it should.”


    We talk about how he got into the entertainment business by building a 3D heart, and how he came to the IndieWeb via one of Leo Laporte’s shows on TWiT. We commiserate about the difficulty of getting people to move from Facebook to the IndieWeb, especially our parents.

    80: Kimberly Hirsh, aka @kimberlyhirsh

    With some effort and discipline, we managed not to turn this into a Buffy The Vampire Slayer podcast.


    Scholar-librarian-doctoral candidate Kimberly Hirsh talks with Jean about how a blog post about being nice on the internet led her to a comment by Chris Aldrich, which led her the IndieWeb and Micro.blog, and… well, she fell down a rabbit hole and stayed up all night figuring out how to make her site follow IndieWeb principles.


    We also talk about her dissertation, and how Final Fantasy has inspired her.
