The Bright Sessions

I am on a roll recently and after fully catching up with my current set of audio-dramas I was looking for more and quickly found The Bright Sessions:

The Bright Sessions is a science fiction podcast that follows a group of therapy patients. But these are not your typical patients – each has a unique supernatural ability. The show documents their struggles and discoveries as well as the motivations of their mysterious therapist, Dr. Bright.

It took me a few episodes to get into it, but by now I have fully caught up and now really need to know what happens to Mark. It’s a very nice podcast. Think as if the characters of Heroes would visit a therapist.

Bummer

Yesterday was update-day and for the first time ever my main machine didn’t play the startup sound. It turned out that its too old and doesn’t qualify for macOS Sierra anymore. Which is a bummer since the MacBook Pro still works well. I guess I’m still fine as long as my main apps support El Capitan. Though bugging me, it is. Luckily my lesser used, and way less portable iMac though was able to update.

MarsCorp Podcast

I am currently exploring and bingeing quite a few new podcasts recently and my latest discovery is MarsCorp Podcast:

MarsCorp is a 12-part scripted comedy podcast about Station Supervisor E.L. Hob’s first year at MarsCorp, a terraforming colony established on the red planet in 2070.

It’s a really fun show, and if you enjoy(ed) The Monster Hunters as much as I do, there is a good chance you will like this one as well.

A iOS 10 ‘Yay’ moment

I haven’t been diving deep into iOS 10 yet, but one of my first Yay! moments was noticing the increased font size in the Podcast.app (yes, using that again). I actually can read the descriptions now without running for the glasses.

Now that I have digested the keynote a few thoughts:

  1. iWork: I’m frequently using iWork and any update is great, especially collaboration. Would be even better if I would collaborate.
  2. Mario!
  3. Apple Watch: Great feature set and waterproof. Very likely to get one. I don’t think anyone said anything about battery life, or?
  4. Headphone Jack: I can’t get away from cables fast enough. Not sure though would I want to go with those.
  5. iPhone 7: Water resistance and the camera are a compelling reason to upgrade. An upgrade that I will have to debate about 1029 times with myself.
