Hello. I enjoy having a podcast and I often see things or encounter things that have enough material that I can do an entire podcast about it. Many times though I come across something interesting or cool that simply isn't enough for a podcast. This month I'm starting a monthly podcast named "Bits and Bytes". These podcasts will be a variety of ideas or experiences in no particular order and some might not even have much of a tie to education, technology or history.
Please feel free to leave a comment to this blog if you have any addition information or thoughts. You can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
