Taco Tuesday!

Okay, this was actually recorded on a Friday, but it’s being uploaded on a Tuesday, so it still works. That said, if it makes you more comfortable to think of it as “Taco Time!”, it’s yo’ thang. Do whatcha wana do. Etc., etc.

Download, grab some tacos—hard, soft, regular, fish, whatever suits you—and maybe some chips and salsa, and don’t forget your headphones…

…and enjoy!

Adventures in Tandem

I could swear I posted this earlier, but I can’t find it on the site, so if this is a duplicate adventure, somebody let me know and I’ll take this one down.

This was recorded way back on June 15, 2017. I thought about adding some commentary to it, because there are stretches where I’m not sure it’s clear that my friend and I are moving on the bike. I forgot that from the listener’s perspective, we are staying still while everything moves around us. Hopefully, this is a fun listen.

If you wish to leave feedback, please do so at Thanks loads.


Back on the Block

At long last, Blind Geek Adventures is back!

I explain the reason for the insanely long hiatus during our walk around the block, so I won’t write it here.

This time out, we’re testing some new binaural mics which are part of the Ambeos Smart Headset from Sanheiser. These are designed specifically for the iPhone, and so far, they’re fantastic. Since making the recording you’re about to hear, I did install the Ambeos app, and I’m happy to report that, for the most part, it’s quite accessable. The only thing I’ve had some trouble with is the built-in Quickstart Guide, which seems to consist of videos which have no spoken components, so the accessibility issues seem moot. I was able to update the firmware and adjust parameters with no difficulty.

I didn’t normalize or use dynamic compression on this, because I wanted to show off the capabilities of the mics. I may—and I stress, may—change this with future episodes. Of course, the compression from a fairly low-bit MP3 file can’t be helped, since I need to keep these files reasonably small. But I hope this sounds good enough to give you the feeling I got when I heard this back. I’m quite p

Crappy Unboxing of Airpods Max Test Podcast

Hey, folks. Long time no see.

This particular episode might not be available for very long. It’s mainly being put up to test the feed, which has been out of commission for a couple years now, at least as far as posting new episodes is concerned. We’ve been able to get episodes which had been posted earlier to show up—episodes I made before I knew there was a problem, so you have been gifted with a couple new adventures to listen to … but this is where we find out if I can actually start making new material and knowing with certainty that you will get to hear it through your podcast app of choice.

But this probably will be taken down soon, of for no other reason than the potential copyright violation is huge, and that is not what I intended. I was just testing the equipment.

Anyway, enough from me.


…while you can.

Jackson’s Corner Walk

Hiya, gang.

This was recorded on August 17, 2019, just a few weeks ago. Jackson’s Corner is a local restaurant about half a mile from my house. Zeke and I decided to make a morning sojourn of it, to test out some … well, re-discovered equipment. I’m very happy with the results.

I forgot I was recording, and on the way home, Menissa and I get into a conversation with Zeke. It’s all in fun, we know he doesn’t really talk. But … well, it’s fun. I almost edited it out, but hey, after seeing Frozen, I feel I have license to share my Zeke conversations. So there ya go.

Enjoy the episode, and feel free to send comments to either the Facebook page, or

Oh, almost forgot the link. Kind of important, that.


Bend Saturday Street Market

Hey, everybody!

Little darlin’s, it’s been a long, cold, lonely winter! But now, I see the smiles returning to the faces, because we have brand-new podcasts!

This is the first of what will be many new podcasts to come. Blind Geek Adventures is back in business, baby!!!!

So let’s go back in the Troup Time Machine to sometime in May of 2015. This was recorded, and left on my desktop to be put on the feed … and never did get put on the feed. I wish I had some reason as to why, but alas, I don’t. There are several upcoming installments which fit that description. So for a while, the old shall be mixed with the new. My best suggestion is just enjoy the content, and don’t think too much about it.

So. 2015. Four years ago. Life hasn’t changed too much. Menissa and I are still roomies, and we still live in the same place. Haven’t been back to another one of these markets, but I expect that will change this year.

Grab your headphones (DO NOT LISTEN TO THIS WHILE DRIVING!!!), sit back, or get on your treadmill, whichever is your preference … relax, and enjoy.

Breakfast with BlindGeek

Holy jeez, it’s been a while! Yes, this podcast still exists. Yes, I plan on making more frequent contributions to it. I know, I did say in the beginning that this podcast would be irregular, but never in my wildest dreams did I think there’d ever be over a year between updates!!!!

Last Friday, I had my first (mostly) unassisted cooking experience. I decided to post it, as it certainly did qualify as a BlindGeek adventure. It’s a long ‘un, so strap yourself into something comfortable, don your headphones of choice, and give it a listen. I think you’ll find you laugh a lot. (Not at the cooking, I hope.) I know we who were there certainly did.

Here’s the episode.

DISCLAIMER: Language gets, shall we say, colorful at times in this particular podcast. Also, due to the nature of in-ear binaural miss, when we are finally enjoying the fruits of my labor, it’s … well … quite obvious that I am enjoying the fruits of my labor. Particularly the crispy bacon. If this offends or grosses you out, just know that everything turned out well and was well-received, so when we start to eat, you can feel free to move on to your next listen.


And please feel free to send comments to the Blind Geek Adventures Facebook page.

It’s great to be back!


Taking another bit of inspiration from the springboard for my love of podcasts and podcasting that was/is Blind Cool Tech, I give you <1 href=”″>this, a virtual sound-seeing tour of my new home.

And in the words of Forrest Gump…

…that’s all I have to say about that.

Superburrito Sojourn

Hiya, folks!

We’re going back to March of this year. This was one of my first walks in my new neighborhood. Zeke and I are accompanied by our friend Menissa, and we go forth to seek adventure and lunch at a restaurant called Superburrito. It’s a longer podcast than usual, because I figured I’d let you all discover this place as I did. It’s a chain, so there may be one in your area as well. I encourage you to check it out. Despite its title, the tacos are the real supers in town.

So don your audio-headgear of choice, download

…and enjoy.

Mic Gain Experimentation

Hi, ev’rybody!

I need your help. I’ve taken a short trip to get the mail, and recorded it in two different ways; I’d like your help to let me know how you’d like to hear future BGA podcasts. Do you prefer the sound of the first half, where we walk to the mailbox, or the second half, when we return home? There are pros and cons to each; there’s no right or wrong answer. I’m just curious. This is your chance to help shape the future sound of this podcast. Send your comments to, or like our brand-spanking-new Facebook page and leave a comment there, so we can all share and enjoy.

I’m dealing with a small but irritating health issue, so this podcast is rather short, but I think it actually works better as a short podcast, given its purpose. Don’t worry; we’ll be back to our more traditional length, if not longer, son enough.

In the meantime, grab your earbuds, headphones, or whatever earpieces work best for you…
