Technical Segment: I Made The Switch To A Linux Laptop - 7:00PM-7:30PM

I'll admit it, I've been an Apple fanboy for quite some time. In fact, when I first started this podcast, I was frustrated with the tools on both Linux and Windows for audio and video production. In 2005, I made the switch, and was mostly happy for ten years with Apple products. The software, user experience and stability of OS X and most software and hardware was exceptional. I've edited countless audio podcasts and video segments on OS X, using everything from Apple's own production software to open-source command line utilities. It's been pretty awesome, until now. Not only have I switched from an iPhone to a Google Nexus 6P, but I've moved to a Linux laptop.

hmmm....I suppose we should talk about Yahoo and Russian hacking, as much as I don't want to do either.
