Let’s go ahead and meet our next round of speakers:
A regular on our stage and favorite among Macstock attendees (esp. the Nosilla Castaways!), Allison started podcasting in May of 2005, just 7 months after podcasting was invented, and her primary show, the NosillaCast has come out every week without missing an episode since late 2005. From the NosillaCast she spun off an interview show called Chit Chat Across the Pond and from that with her co-host Bart Busschots another show called Programming By Stealth. She’s a frequent guest on Daily Tech News Show, Clockwise and the SMR Podcast, with appearances on MacBreak Weekly, Cordkillers, Tech’s Message, and The Productive Woman Podcast. She and her husband Steve produce video interviews from trade shows CES, NAB and CSUN’s Assistive Tech conference.
A first time Macstock presenter, Josh is an engineer, gamer, and cook. So is his wife. And they share a small, 120 square feet kitchen. This lack of space can make creating healthy fun meals a challenge when only one drawer exists in the kitchen! Efficiency with their space and time is vital. Armed with various Apple products and apps, together they plan and create great meals and dishes. Including custom bacon and marshmallows! Mmm, marshmallows…. (you thought I was going to say “bacon” didn’t you?)
When not presenting, you can count on Dave to be wandering the halls of Macstock sharing his in-depth knowledge of iOS with other attendees. As host of the podcast, In Touch With iOS, Dave talks about all things related to iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch and is frequently joined by guests from the Apple Community including many past and present Macstock speakers. An early adopter of many Apple products including the iPhone, Dave brings real world experiences and his passion of technology to every episode as he teaches and entertains his listeners. He loves podcasting so much he hosts another show which is a non-tech podcast talking about all things horse racing called Off The Charts Horse racing.
