Tech tAUk Reloaded #15: Midnight Madness at the Mall

Tech tAUk Reloaded

Our tech headlines this week:

We then flashback to Black Friday eve, where we both went to observe the Black Friday craziness at the Palisades Center in West Nyack, NY, and recorded our observations while in the shopping mall. Josh then follows up by recapping the Black Friday violence highlights in a special editions of FLUNKS:

Finally, Douglas brings back his “Be Patient… This Gets Confusing” segment to discuss the security method of two-step verification, and how you can (and should) set it up on many popular websites that you are signed up for.

About Douglas Bell

I live in Washington, D.C., and work as a Broadcast Technician at WAMU 88.5 FM, the local NPR affiliate in the Washington metro area. My primary shift is to engineer the local feed of NPR’s Morning Edition, including local news and weather, long-form features and station breaks… and yes, the shift starts at 5 am, so I’ve got the whole quasi-nocturnal thing going on. I am also the Coordinating Producer for Ken Rudin’s Political Junkie, an independently-produced podcast and public radio program. Extracurricularly, I play cello, and participate in a church choir and a handbell choir. I enjoy discovering new places, and am constantly searching for the perfect cheeseburger. I am also known as a frequent teller of puns.
