New Podcast: Two Dads Talking

2 min read

I am not ashamed to admit that I love podcasts. In the early 2000s, blogs were the hot thing: an open publishing medium that allowed people to exchange ideas, converse, and share. Since then, blogs have faded, as increasingly toxic social media walled gardens have moved people off the open web. Itโ€™s a shame, really. Iโ€™m hopeful that blogs will rise again, but itโ€™s going to take time.

Podcasts, on the other hand, have only grown in popularity, and are still blissfully free of central control from creepy ad-driven social media giants. We are in the golden age of podcasting!

Iโ€™ve had a personal microcast for a while now, and Iโ€™ve been pretty undisciplined about publishing it. Still, it has been a fun exercise, and I plan to keep at it for years to come.

Today, however, Iโ€™m excited to announce a new podcast project: Two Dads Talking. TDT is a longer form podcast featuring myself and my co-host Eddie Hinkle. Eddie and I have known each other for a few years now through the IndieWeb community, and weโ€™ve found that we both have a lot in common, but also a significant amount of differences. This podcast is an opportunity for us to get to know each other better, and for our listeners to join us in that discovery.

Eddie and I are both parents, though at very different life stages, and both are people of faith, and technologists. Iโ€™m really looking forward to getting to know Eddie better, and I hope youโ€™ll all join us in our journey of Two Dads Talking.

To subscribe, visit the Two Dads Talking website, follow us on Micro.blog, or subscribe in your favorite podcast client.

 
 

"As WordPress continues its move toward becoming SquareSpace, Micro.blog just keeps becoming a better blogging platform." โ€“ย Jack Baty on Micro.blog couldn't be more right! I'm increasingly recommending Micro.blog over WordPress for bloggers.

 
 
 
 
 

Thanks to @CultOfMac for their article on using Indiepaper with Micro.blog!

Helping my dad, @IntlBuzz, get set up with a Micro.blog account.

 

I have started to think of Micro.blog as a wonderful discovery and aggregation service for the IndieWeb. It fits neatly into my Microsub reader, enables me to find new people to follow and interact with, and integrates perfectly with my website through Webmentions. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

 

This is precisely why I prefer Micro.blogโ€™s model. Itโ€™s decentralized for individual websites, but centralized from a network perspective, enabling strong community guidelines and enforcement.

That said, there has never been a better time to join the and Micro.blog has made it easier than ever before. I canโ€™t recommend it enough.

 

If you're using my service to generate an "On This Day" page for your Micro.blog site, it's now an order of magnitude faster thanks to optimization. To see the benefits, you'll just need to have posted recently! - https://github.com/cleverdevil/micromemories

 

Hey, Micro.blog users! I built a way to add an "On This Day" feature to your website. I've put it on @cleverangel's site at http://cleverangel.org/on-this-day, but you can (in theory) use it too! Instructions here - https://github.com/cleverdevil/micromemories

 

My goal? Get people off of Facebook completely, and back onto the open web, where they're in control. I highly recommend Micro.blog as a great place to land! Using https://github.com/cleverdevil/ditchbook, you can even move your data ๐Ÿ˜€

 
 

Thrilled to see @manton added experimental support for Indiepaper in Micro.blog! Give it a try, folks, and let me know what you think.

Replied to a post on werd.io :

@werd.io well said. After finally deleting my Facebook account, I find myself syndicating less and less to Twitter as well, especially with Micro.blog available as another platform to discover and follow other indie bloggers.
