A long-running harmless podcast of observations from Singapore, Malaysia, and Australia.
Rubenerd Show 414: The thingy stuff episode
14:00 — A discussion about how my fervour for independent writing hasn’t translated into improving podcast imposter syndrome! Also RSS, distribution, how social networks have convinced people to only write for them, and related ruminations. Thanks for your patience while I produced this one :).
Rubenerd Show 413: The Wheaty 2021 episode
13:57 — Jim Kloss returned to the Whole Wheat Radio airwaves again for a chat! I was not prepared, and even started typing over it towards the end when work pinged me, but I couldn’t let this moment of Internet audio history go unrecorded.
Rubenerd Show 412: The wandering mug episode
47:35 — An impromptu discussion on everyone’s favourite comestible beverage conveyance, among several other unrelated topics. Recorded July 2020, only getting around to producing... gulp! Hey, that’s the sound someone drinking from a mug makes.
Rubenerd Show 411: The FreeBSD cat(1) episode
28:45 — A discussion about feline creatures liking me despite having never owned one… turned into a rant about desktop software quality, remembering Wintel and desktop Java, running OpenZFS on FreeBSD and NetBSD with cgd, BSD on an iBook back in the day, being burned by btrfs, BSDCan comments about home labs now being production, and wandering outside in beautifully-mild winter weather.
Rubenerd Show 410: The apothecary coffee episode
25:23 — Not knowing a place till you leave it, the fascinating triangular windows of the old Belle Vue in Singapore, faded knock-off Lego blocks, Albert Einstein’s travels, finding new coffee shops, apothecary tables, government posters, a 1990s-era glass foyer, and a borderline rant on my butterfly Apple keyboard. Recorded early May 2020.
Rubenerd Show 409: The uncanny silhouette episode
29:37 — Join Ruben for a late-night wander around the abandoned Sydney suburb of Chatswood during these lockdown adventures. Topics include 100 days of COVID-19, stairwall-derived exercise, Australia and New Zealand’s potential new travel bubble, finding coffee shops, spooky silhouettes in the night, a Liverpool FC barber, JoAnne Hook paintings, active voice, saying “you too!” to retail staff, and the uncanny valley as it pertains to… sheep‽ Recorded Monday 4th May 2020.
One of the best shows. Rubenerd is funny, brilliant and thoughtful. A pleasure to listen to.
