Episode 31 - What's More Comforting Than A Fischler, Maybe Moby Dick?

That Real Blind Tech Show

It is a fully crewed fully packed virtual self distanced That Real Blind Tech show studio, as the entire gang is back together again. We  start off with the ancient philosophers question of how stupid are sighted people when it comes to blindness? We then dive in to the sale of Yahoo Fantasy and what it means for the future of the accessibility for the app. Believe it or not but it seems like Uber drivers have found a new way to attempt to complicate the lives of blind guide dog handlers. Who has the better nickname, Steve Jobs for Facebook or That Real Blind Tech Show for Mark Zuckerberg? Hungary for dinner? Why not have an Aira agent help you with your order? Because we do not have enough to worry about in the world these days, researchers have added something to the plate for anyone who gets rid of an old phone number. Have Audio social media apps already jumped the shark? In case they have not, we discuss our first experiences with Twitter Spaces. Then because it is not about Brian all the time, we get Ed and Allison’s thoughts about iOS14.5. If you could have any celebrity voice as your VoiceOver voice, who would it be? Apple is rumored to be offering a Lossless audio service coming soon, would you subscribe to it? In a not so distant future Apple is rumored to be working on Apple Glass which will have a brightness adjusting feature that we ponder if it will be helpful to visually impaired people? Digital Spring Time cleaning is it just for lunatics? If you have not checked recently, Pages for iOS has become a full blown very accessible word processor on iOS. It even has keyboard commands galore. And it is more of What’s Pissing Off Brian Now and an absolute classic Watcha Streaming Watcha Reading that goes completely off the rails and is a must hear!.

Episode 2: Diving with MOBY DICK

Great American Novel

The Great American Novel podcast is an ongoing discussion about the novels we hold up as significant achievements in our American literary culture.  Additionally, we sometimes suggest novels who should break into the sometimes problematical canon and at other times we’ll suggest books which can be dropped from such lofty consideration.  Your hosts are Kirk Curnutt and Scott Yarbrough, professors with  little time and less sense who nonetheless enjoy a good book banter.   This episode focuses on the novel branded more than any other as the Great American Epic Novel: Herman Melville’s classic 1851 novel Moby Dick. We delve into such important questions as, why was the whale white?  What does it mean that Ahab leaves behind wife and child?  Is he thwarting the will of God?  Is Gregory Peck better in the film role than Patrick Stewart?  Why chapters about ropes and squeezing sperm? Why, when all is said and done, is this the most canonical of all canonical novels?  Is it truly worthy of the label “Great American Novel”? Additionally, for Canon Fodder Kirk proposes Charles Johnson’s excellent 1990 novel, Middle Passage.  The intro song is “Old Ralley” by Lobo Loco; the outro is “Inspector Invisible,” also by Lobo Loco.  The film trailer clips are from Moby Dick, directed by John Huston in 1956.
