Just geek out and walk

I just went out for a walk in a nearby park. That shouldn’t be particularly noteworthy except for the times we find ourselves in. What made the walk especially enjoyable (well, aside from being out in glorious weather), was the opportunity to just geek out over this interview with Felicia Day on the Id10t podcast a while ago:

I loved her appearance in Critical Role, Campaign One, in the Trial of the Take adventures (parts 1 and 2):

As an aside: I really enjoyed watching Mary Elizabeth McGlynn, Wil Wheaton, and Will Friedle playing Dungeons & Dragons. I think Gina and I binged the four episodes (episodes 3 and 4 are here and here) over the course of a few days.

Anyway, back to that Felicia Day interview. The more of her work I see or hear, the more I appreciate that she does what she does. Her interview gives some wonderful insights into her personality, and even some of the services she uses day to day (at least at the time of the interview – I love these sorts of insights especially).

I’ve been listening to podcasts when I run, and go for walks (it helps with the monotony of the paths I have to keep to with local restrictions on movement due to COVID-19), and I’ve had this one queued for a while now. It’s well worth listening to if you’re a Felicia Day fan.

TWiT and @SteveMartinToGo sitting in a podcast

I have been subscribed to numerous TWiT podcasts for years now and Triangulation is an awesome show. In Triangulation Leo Laporte and Tom Merritt interview tech luminaries, thinkers and generally amazing people. In episode 41 they interviewed Steve Martin and this show is a must watch. I am about 11 minutes in and they have been talking about Steve Martin’s approach to Twitter.

Grab some lunch and watch this during your lunch hour. It will be worth it.
