As you may (or may not) know I am the co-host of a little podcast called The Essential Apple Podcast, and yes, recently we had Nitrozac and Snaggy on as esteemed guests, and prior to them Garlic Guy - and it was great fun.

The other day, partly in response to some questions our latest guest asked me I thought I would write a little article about how I go about recording and editing the show and put it up on the website...

Nothing very special there - except the next morning when I opened my Apple News app what did I see sitting there on the front page under the Apple section? Why my little article!

I have no idea what prompted whatever algorithms to pick up that article - it isn’t even particularly “appley” in its tone. However it did pick it up, and so there you are... My little 15 minutes of fame for now

Oh My!
Photos or it didn't happen!

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.
