Self Driving, ๏ฃฟ Card, and Pro Recording

Right before the Thanksgiving Holiday, I was able to speak with Jared Gault, a long time friend, that I have somewhat lost touch with. I met him when I was working for MarketSource during my tenure on the Nokia program and I could tell from a very young age that he’s going to be super talented. As a matter of fact, it was Jared originally who turned me onto ๏ฃฟ as I begin to diversify my personal tech journey. I will spare you all the details, however, I was an extreme die-hard Nokia fan and without ever using ๏ฃฟ , was a complete hater. So thank you Jared for helping me open up my mind even when I thought I was in that open space when it came to tech.

Without further ado, during this podcast, we tackled some thoughts on autonomous driving, ๏ฃฟ Card, and even how recording on your phone has come a long way producing studio-like quality. The audio will be a little challenging in the beginning seeing Jared was on a long car journey. I wanted to seize the moment as it has been a bit since I have posted.

Do note my kid came through a few times, so I do apologize for that audio disrupt. The #Dadlife is real you all and now having a newborn at home, I have to get it done when I can. ๐Ÿ™‚

In this podcast, we cover 3 topics in today’s headlines.

  1. Battery ๐Ÿ”‹ throttling
  2. Unfixable software on millions of iOS products
  3. Impeachment inquiry situation

Jeremy and I try to be as balanced as possible. Everyone is biased and it takes self awareness and effort to have a realistic viewpoint.

We hope you enjoy!


Round 2!

Here we go! Another night of the #DemDebate even though I have to admit that the 1st night was much better than the 2nd. It was a bit rough this go round and it wasn’t just because of my lack of sleep.

For this podcast, we tried a completely different format. I wanted to jot down some questions that came up and try to tackle these from this type of approach. That way, you can see (I’ll post down below) the questions and you’ll know what more so is being discussed.

Now, we are still doing this on FaceBook Live, however, we still allow and want others to chime in to add to the conversation in realtime.

As always, let me know what you think ( @Terrance_Blount and Jeremy Thompson @ImaHockeyGuy )! Also note Jeremy and I completely disagreed on one of these touchy questions at the very end.

Democratic Debate Questions:

  • Debate Night 2
  • Who are you top 2 candidates? (Biden and Harris)
  • Your surprise person? (Kristen Gillibrand or #YangGang and even Tulsi Gabbard is interesting!)
  • Who are the 2 you think wonโ€™t be returning? (Staying is Biden, Harris, Booker)
  • 911 First responders Health Care
  • Are you tired of hearing about Trump?
  • Should we intervene on pricing for life-sustaining drugs like insulin?
  • Would you be willing to give up your current health plan for Universal care?
  • What is up with all this โ€œjailโ€ talk?
  • Would decriminalizing border crossing bring an open boarder approach? 
  • Werenโ€™t the policies the same in the Obama era vs. Trump when it comes to the border? 
  • Shouldnโ€™t we embrace and try to get other countries to treat their people better vs. saying they are shitty? In other words, would helping them out alleviate the border situation?
  • Do you think illegal immigrants should get free medical and free college?
  • Did you get the feeling this debate had more to do with yester-year than actual today?
  • Do you think economy needs will change, like jobs, and where do you see things going when it comes to a form of socialism?
  • How would you balance disruptions created by technology with its beneficial impaction our economy?
  • Will finning companies help fix the gender pay gap?

Questions we wanted to ask but didnโ€™t get to:

  • Do you think people really went too hard on Biden to lessen his chances of the presidency? 
  • Why do you think President Trump doesnโ€™t believe in Climate Change?
  • Is Andrew Yang not wearing a tie a play?

Dem Debate 7.30.2019 Discussion Podcast

What….a…night! Now, the first series of debates were meh, however, the first night here was so good in my view. REALLY loved what Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders had to say. The #DemDebate will be interesting moving forward.

As for the purpose of this podcast, we are trying two different formats. Focusing on tonight, we simply wanted to share our thoughts right after the debate. We wanted to just dedicate 1 hour (ended up being closer to 2) to share our immediate thoughts afterwards.

To provide more context, originally when we host these, we do so online via FaceBook Live. This matters to us because we can get some live feedback on thoughts of others as we share. It allows the conversation to take a more natural flow and this is the format we’ve done so far.

So take a listen and share your thoughts with Jeremy and myself. We’d GREATLY appreciate it! As for tomorrow, we’ll supply the Q&A format we used instead where we’d also love to hear your thoughts! @Terrance_Blount and Jeremy Thompson @ImaHockeyGuy

We wanted to take a moment to reflect and make some predictions prior to Mueller’s testimony. Clearly this has already happened BUT this is taken from a FaceBook Live video and we’ll follow-up here on Wednesday, July 31st, 2019.

So ๐Ÿ‘€… we realize President Trump goes on his rampages on Twitter and we thought it was interesting what he said about ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ซ. Some things shouldn’t be said, however, and it can be dangerous in the game he plays.

Specifically, don’t be distracted. There’s certainly a lot going on. Some things said. Keep your ๐Ÿ‘‚ open to the context and the message in between.

Looking forward to a most robust post to discuss what has happened afterwards and what it REALLY means. Well, what it means and some predictions, of course.

As always, we’re curious to hear ๐Ÿ‘‚ your thoughts ๐Ÿ’ญ!



Awe man, this app hasn’t been kind to my face ya’ll! But Jeremy… you look like your Grandpa! But anyhow…

We are playing a bit of catch up in anticipation to so much coming down the pipeline . We wanted to discuss the FaceApp and why it’s blown out of proportion while yet Privacy is still a concern. Not to mention (yet again) Trump’s tweets. Sigh….


Posting up a little late BUT wanted to get this out there for you all!

Enjoy the show and tomorrow I will provide better notes ๐Ÿ“ as we have been recording very late and editing even later. (Regarding the next show we just recorded ending after midnight ๐Ÿ•› July 18, 2019)

As always, feel free to send us feedback as we find our footing and continue to learn. Thank you ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ for your support!

Certainly we are living in interesting times. Hopefully you’ll find this podcast the same as we dive into these discussions:

  • BMW’s Boss is out because… Tesla
  • Trump’s version of the 4th July
  • Beta Testing the public… good… or bad


As always, let Jeremy and I know what you think as we simply ๐Ÿงช ๐Ÿ‘‚ ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿพโ€๐Ÿ’ป ๐Ÿ—ฃ

    Been a pretty long time since I have uploaded any content! So I at the very last minute decided it was time to tackle a few topics.

    I was fortunate enough to have Jermey Thompson join me to discuss a few topics:

    • Moderators who have to view online, flagged content and the affects on their mental health
    • Nike Betsy Ross controversy
    • Free Speech online

    I hope you enjoy and after you listen, I would absolutely โค๏ธ for you to share your thoughts here or via ๐Ÿ“ง or iMessage at:

    Of course there’s Twitter too: @Terrance_Blount

    Good morning โ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐ŸŒž LinkedIn!! Hereโ€™s a honest and deep look into how we often take #Publicshaming too far without thinking of the mistakes we have made and the lives that can be destroyed in the process.

    Just to be clear, this has everything to do with the work space and harassment. In the age of the internet, the lines are blurred and I personally see this as an example of how we can all be better. To understand we all have made silly mistakes and have done โœ… idiotic things that we arenโ€™t proud of. It doesnโ€™t mean you should stay down or disappear as there are paths forward.

    Feel free to share your thoughts and I hope they are #PostiveVibes and enlightening.
