I got into podcasting late. I’ve been listening for years, but I never started my own. But by the time that Seth and I did, there was an emerging idea started by Jason Snell: recording and editing podcasts iOS-only. As someone who rarely ever touches a Mac for their day-to-day work, this idea has continued to gnaw at my brain. I tried my hand a couple of times at doing something differently with it, but it never panned out the way I wanted.
In an effort to head down this road, I ended up switching microphones last year: I had the clutch Blue Yeti microphone, but decided on the Audio-Technica ATR2100-USB instead. Not only was it better for the environment in which I record, but it also afforded me the possibility to record using both the USB and XLR connections, pushing me closer to the goal of iOS-only.
A month or so ago, I was recording the show via the late-2012 Mac mini I have. I ended up having an issue while recording, and I lost my audio in several spots. Given that this is one of two jobs that I ever ask it to do, I was understandably upset and put off by recording in the same way going forward. The idea of going iOS-only came back to the forefront of my mind. I again turned to Jason’s setup, only to realize that this was going to cost me several hundred dollars to create. I don’t have that lying around, and I wanted to find something that would work for me.

We’ve started the second season… series… whatever of the show. This entire run will be focused mainly on task management. It won’t be about the apps we use, but rather the feelings behind the how, why, and what of our task management. We’re really excited about it, and we hope you are too.
If you’re interested, feel free to give it a listen wherever you get your iTunes podcasts, or give it a listen below. You may need to reload without content blockers to show the mini-player below. (Note: this podcast does – for a reason – contain the explicit tag. Not recommended for listening around your kids. You’ve been warned.)
I’ve recently ventured into the podcast world. I’ve been wanting to do one for a long time, and I’m thankful that I’m finally able to do that with my friend Seth. Now that it’s been out for a bit, I thought I’d share a bit about my setup.

All too often, I realize the paths I take in my daily life have problems. And it makes me realize how broken I can be, often times at very basic level. But when I have these moments, I’m able to overcome them through creative methods, past experiences, and most of all friends, and build it back up again. And sharing the problem makes me feel that I’m not alone.
Seth Clifford and I met as all modern-day bromances do: on the internet. Over time, our internet acquaintance has turned into a solid foundation for a friendship. And now, he is one of my closest friends. Through some time, patience, and a lot of some badgering, we are finally taking the next step: a podcast.
A special thanks to the amazing Satchell Drakes for the incredible artwork. I couldn’t be happier with how well it turned out. He is the best!
In the first episode, we talk about the reasoning for the show, and what we want Fundamentally Broken to be. For now, this is going to be monthly-ish: it could be sooner, it could be longer. We are busy with work and family, and sometimes our available time is slim. So it’s just going to be a surprise when you see it pop up in your feed.
Hope you enjoy the show!
