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 blindgeek@lioncourt.com.

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!

ApplePlay with ApplePay

Here’s the episode discussed in the previous one, from October 30, 2014. Step into the WayBac machine and let’s go.

Incidentally, I do still have the mono recording mentioned. So if there’s interest, I’ll post it… although I should tell you, we’re going to be exploring that whole area in depth on this podcast in a short time, so the recording’s relevance is not what it would’ve been when it was made.

We’re off to experience ApplePay for the first time. This isn’t the most impressive demo, since neither I nor the McDonald’s employees had much of a clue what we were doing. I’ve since become much more adept at using ApplePay, as have the employees. Even so, I think you’ll find the speed of the transaction impressive.

And with that, we’re back to our friends, the binaural mics, so don your headphones…


…and enjoy!

End of the Beginning

Hi, folks. Glad to finally be back.

Please forgive the audio quality in this particular episode. The why of it is explained in the episode itself, so I won’t bother to repeat it here. It sure feels great to be back!

The website mentioned in this episode is Dreaming with Jeff. As I did on our walk, I strongly encourage you to check it out. It’s an awesome thing Jeff Bridges is doing over there, and it’ll feel damn good to be even a small part of it.

If you want to send me feedback on this, or any other, episode, please send it to blindgeek@lioncourt.com. Watch for the Blind Geek Adventures Facebook page, coming soon.

I think.

That’s the plan, anyway.

You can grab your headphones for this one if you want, but it’s not nearly as necessary. This one’s just in good old-fashioned stereophonic sound. Grrrrrrrr…

In any case, download

…and enjoy!
