Episode 9: The Rode to Casting

With a full crew in this episode, Donovan talks about his experiences with his new Rodecaster Pro mixer as well as using his iPhone SE 2 (2020) for the last couple of weeks.  Both devices made him immediately regret the purchase but he eventually came around (mostly).  Oliver discusses what his medical facility he works out is going to do in checking peoples’ temps, etc., is the end of Black Friday near (and are we experiencing the new normal when it comes to shopping), Amazon Prime Video finally has user profiles, iOS 14 is in public beta, if you have a GoPro Hero 8 you can use it as a webcam (only on macOS right now, though), and Sam brings up a weird file where an engineer decided to make her own special type of cell phone (listen to find out what it was).

There was a discussion on masks, etc. but don’t worry — the show didn’t get *too* political on the subject.
