Episode 7 of the Hello Shenzhen series will be the last Looking Sideways episode for a little while. I have a couple of podcast ideas in development, and they’ll be shared here if and when they come to fruition.
In the meantime, I’ve started a new weekly podcast called Unreliable Devices, which is tracking my progress through – and reflections on – Fab Academy, a course taught over 6 months in Fablabs around the world on ‘how to make (almost) anything’.
It’s quite different to Looking Sideways: more regular, off-the-cuff, and much shorter (about 5-10 minute per episode). It’s an experiment to see if I can get reasonably good at making a show in this format, and make something with a lower overhead than the heavily planned and edited style of Looking Sideways that’s more spontaneous – and still worth listening to.
I hope to see you over there!
