Podcast: Episode 4 – Technology bringing real people together in real spaces
March 28, 2018
One of the many things I like about making podcasts is after years of producing formal radio programmes lots of the conventions can be abandoned. For decades I lived under the whip of the tyrannical Greenwich Time Signal. The most grievous sin of all was to crash the pips – so many interesting conversations were brought to a hasty conclusion well before time should have been called. A podcast episode can be as long or as short as it needs to be – this will be one of the longer ones.
This is the podcast that almost has a name I am tentatively going to call That Creative Business Podcast what do you think? Is that crap? Please subscribe and if you like contribute here.
Technology bringing real people together in real spaces.
We have two interviews. Victoria McCallum is one of the organisers of Women Techmakers Belfast. The main summit will be held in W5 on Saturday 14 April and there will be workshops the evening before.
The second part is a conversation with Andrew Bolster – known almost universally simply as Bolster. He was one of the founders of probably the first hacker space in Belfast – Farset Labs. It’s a tech lab, a creative hub, a workshop, a tech store, a networking place and partly a museum of a techie childhood. It also has the biggest blackboard in Ireland.
They say that they are “an open community of students, professionals, academics, freelancers, artists, hackers, and organizers that believe strongly in experimental learning and the Do-It-Yourself ethic.”
The podcast music is Arizona Moon by Blue Dot Sessions and you can find that and thousands of more rights free music on the Free Music Archive – which is a fantastic resource for podcasters and video makers in search of excellent music.
