BSP-088: A Nipple For Your Computer

On today's episode of the Bandrew Says Podcast, I apologize for the crappy audio, talk about launching a new podcast, and I plug a podcast I was a guest on where I probably shared too much.

In the news segment, I talk about Boeing offering $2 Million in Prize money, Google Pulling Out of Amazon, Amazon cutting the price of their 4k Content, Twitter allowing 280 character long tweets, New Amazon Echo Devices, a new Yubikey, New GoPros, The Nokia 3310 coming to the United States, Youtube blocking external links, and Homeland Security conducting social media Screenings.

In TV, I suggest watching Halt & Catch Fire. During the Ask Bandrew Segment, I answer: Any instruments you want to include in your reviews?, Small diaphragm mics for vocals?, Favorite bass guitar?, Using the Sm7b w/o Windscreen?, Why i started reviewing mics?, why I use the NT1 for interface reviews?, and if the ATR1100 is good for gaming on a budget?

On episode 54 of the BSP, I share the first recording I ever made on my computer, and explain why the audio you’re getting out of your $30-$50 is much better than you think. 

In the personal portion of the podcast, I share a very strange encounter I had with a pizza delivery man, my boycott of the NFL, and rant about how I hope all of you are smart about how you drive.

In the news, I cover Facebook’s plans for video hosting, the FCC allowing zero rating, the FBI’s iPhone cracking software being stolen, and the FBI gaining access to all of Google’s e-mails stored outside of the US.

In pop culture, I talk about the return of the Expanse on the SyFy channel, I recommend a grind core album that I’ve been listening to for over 10 years, and I suggest an X-files book that should satiate your conspiracy mind during the absence of new X-files episodes.

As far as what I’ve been testing, I share a big mistake I made while purchasing a couple of Yubikey encryption keys, and explain why I like Signal, and the difficulties of using it.
