Elsie Escobar 0:02
Oh my gosh. So Hello, everybody. I’ve been talking with y’all. I’ve been talking with you Karen Jackson, I was trying to figure out why you’re not answering my question. I’m saying, hey,

right now, and I’m going to talk, and I’m going to show you things.

Unknown Speaker 0:37
Because I really

Elsie Escobar 0:37
don’t know how many people are gonna show up for this because, you know, platforms. And new platforms at that are very annoying for most people. So it is not particularly exciting or fun for folks when they have to join a new platform, right? I certainly hope that you can hear me. And I see soudha. And I see Karen Jackson. And let me know if you hear me, lovelies, just in case, it looks like Okay, I see lots of little comments and things. I hear you fine. Hello. Yes, we do rate awesome. Perfect. I would have hated to just be out here talking and have no one hear me. Cuz that looks like yeah, I have to say one thing. Just straight away. I’m not sure I can live my life anymore. Without filters. Because the reality the reality of my face is hard to take. Just being honest. I’m just being honest. Because a lot of the time, I can see you all I totally can see you I see people, mostly people. It is just very challenging to, you know, some Yeah. Anyway, all I’m saying is like seeing my big ass face, my big face. And then because zoom has done amazing things with filters. And they cover you up and they make you look so pretty. And they give you an inner shine and lipstick even. And whenever you don’t have that it’s like I need to have extra things beautify my face. Okay, I’m gonna see if I can. I don’t want to touch my light in a weird way. You know what? It’s good. That’s gonna be it. I’m just gonna leave it that way. Cuz I’m too annoyed. Okay. So we are going to give everybody just a little a few more minutes. Before I continue, skin is our emotional health. I know, right? Um, what was I going to say? I’m going to give people a few more minutes to catch up because this is a new platform. And it might be like, Oh my gosh, this is so annoying. Do I really have to sign in and all of those things. So I’m just going to give folks a little bit of time before we get started. But given all of that, let us you know I have a couple of questions. Karen, I got you. And I’m going to show you some a workflow that I have because I have thoughts. And then we’re going to talk a little bit about re D. It’s not reverb, it’s a D verb is but it’s called d d reverb or whatever. That I had a question about that. I’m just double checking again to see if I have anything else that has just come in really quickly. Yes, I am. Yes, I’m on. I think Patrick is trying to make it here. Come and see me. See me, Patrick. I have to say that being able to text y’all is kind of nice. When I’m not you know, I’m just focusing on that one thing. That’s the only part in terms of my add to be able to stay focused. On one thing, this is probably not the best, but you know that’s the way we do it. That’s the way we do it too. double checking one last time and to check my email really quickly, to just make sure that I’ve got everybody, at least, if not troubleshooting,

or anything like that, before we get started.

Going to go ahead and address a question that I got from the community from our text community. Because this is probably gonna get answered pretty quickly here it is from Tiffany, Tiffany, Tiffany, she asked, most

[05:51] What’s the best de-reverb plug-in (from Tiffany) effective D verb, plugin, D verb, plugin. So just to clarify for some folks that maybe don’t quite know what that is, what is a like D verb. I don’t know if you’ve noticed in the past and GarageBand does this, if you use GarageBand. To edit your show, this was something that used to drive me crazy. Whenever you open up like an audio or a vocal track, inside of GarageBand, when you start to talk, it has this like real subtle echoey type sound in the background like it’s not like you’re in a cave, it’s a very hard thing to put words to it’s sort of like a slight echo. Not so much that it’s like whoa, but it’s a slight little echo. And there are times when we are like the tracks themselves inside of GarageBand do that. Because I think what they what they think in terms of the, the way that they set up those tracks is that the majority of the vocal tracks are going to be used for music. And sometimes when you’re you’re singing, having that little echo in the background kind of gives the sound of your voice, a little bit more but dimensional sound. But when you’re recording podcasts, it’s a little bit. It’s not, it’s not necessary for talking, it’s necessary. Maybe when you’re trying to drive a point, aesthetically, or storytelling wise, if you want to add other layers to the sound of your voice, yes, more in a creative fashion, versus a Straight Talk, talk radio kind of thing. And so what I’ve noticed with a lot of folks that are using maybe not the best recording environment, given the fact that they are not in a position where they can address an echo, or address that sort of multi dimensional I’m in a cave feel to their audio because of their location, then running files through something called D verb is a way to lessen that dimensionality to the sound. And we only get the specific words and makes it much more pleasing to the ear. And more straightforward. So I hope that that makes sense for you. So that is what a reverb kind of thing is. And so one way to fix the reverb is obviously prior to recording, which is not what Tiffany asked. But it so it would be like how do I fix this echoey sound in my recording, the first place that you do that is via your environment. So you’re going to have to address the type of microphone you’re using where you are recording. Is there a way that you can maybe switch from a condenser microphone to a dynamic that dynamic microphone tends to be a little more focused and a little more on point less expansive in nature less sensitive to the things around you. And also to recognize, you know, in terms of the way that sound moves inside of a room, whether or not it’s bouncing off of different people, the height of the roof, sometimes the the height up often comes into play as well. high ceilings, so all of those things like if you notice where you’re recording, a way to lessen the reverb is through your location and testing, testing, testing. So that’s one thing but what Tiffany is asking is what if you can’t and or you are an editor and you have gotten a piece of audio that is way beyond that, right? But it’s like super super like then you’re not going to fix it at that point. So you have to have a piece of software that kind of strips the echo from a file. I just saw just that you mentioned that you did something I saw your little thing come up here. And I don’t know what happened. Where did you see I saw your Jessica coppermine. I see that you’re in there. And I also saw that you

are talking to me, and I don’t know how. Where I said, I have a question. Oh, you have a question under comments. I know. Well, I am under comments. You have a question under comments. I don’t see. Great. Now you’re getting me off point. No, I do. That’s weird under comments. Yeah. I don’t see questions. And I don’t see under comments. Hey, there, how can we help? No, not you, by the way. Okay. Let me finish. Before I address all the things. Can I ask my question? Yes, you can. Do I have to give you the mic? Um, yes, you can ask your question. Yes. No. Yes. Go ahead and ask your question. Is it about reverb? Because if it’s not, I will finish reverb and then I will answer your question. But because I don’t see. Finished reverb. Okay. All right. So these are the solutions to the software question. Are these because I don’t have too much knowledge when it comes to what these plugins aren’t? Because again, I don’t have to find a solution to the problem because I’m addressing it and prior to not in post, but in pre, I guess one of them would be oh my gosh, where’s the answer? Sorry, I had all of these things like right in my face, and then all of a sudden they disappeared. So john, our editor,

just my other geeky friends, and they mentioned that any good da will have a reverb effect. But that’s not what we want. If you want something more specific waves makes a good reverb, plugin waves, waves waves. However, unless you’re absolutely specifically looking for something special, the stock reverb of any dog will be fine. But to take room reverb or echo RX is magic. So I think that what we’re talking about here, or Tiffany is referring to, is particularly de like making sure that that echo and the reverb inside of that echo is the thing to do. So we’ve got again, Rx seven, the plugin for Eric seven is the thing that most people are kind of looking for here. I’m going to let me see. Then Daniel Lewis said, If you mean reverb reduction, then I recommend the reverb remover in era five bundle standard or pro by a que Sonus. So those are three pieces of software plugins that you can use to diminish the reverb void for most of us would be the echo in a track the echo in a track that often you do find as well when your guest because you would of course never do this. Your guest is not wearing headphones. So if your guest is not wearing headphones, usually their track is going to have a little bit of an echo added to it. Okay, so I see that you have a question, Miss Jessica from and I am moving to you before I address Karen’s question, which can take a little bit more of a conversation here. Minus quick, okay. But you know, I have the gift of gab. I have the gab the gabbing aspect of of myself.

[14:17] So how long do you wait for someone to show up on zoom? Oh, right. Is the answer different for show guests versus clients? I would say 15 minutes. I say 15 minutes. It’s kind of like, that’s a good. I waited 10. I say 15. And I follow up because sometimes folks are like, they have their times messed up in their heads. And I know that that’s been something that’s happened to me before. So I appreciate a follow up via email. This is me. I appreciate somebody pinging me and saying like, Hey, I’m waiting. Oh my gosh, you know, that kind of stuff. That’s what I I do because sometimes I forget And I’d rather get that ping afterwards or I’m sitting here waiting for you just in case you need the link again, here it is. And I usually will do that. If it’s a client, I usually will send that e that reminder email somewhere around five to seven minutes. And then I wait possibly to 15. And then I move on. So yeah, so that’s how I would handle it. And then when it comes to guests, um, I would say about 15 minutes would be the same thing. And also, I think what’s harder, though, for me, it’s less, it’s on the other side of things. I don’t know how long I should stick around as a guest, meaning that I have been asked to be on somebody else’s show. And I’m not there, and I’m there. I’m there. And they’re not there. I don’t know how long I should stick around. So hey, if anybody has any ideas of how long I should stick around, or like, you know, the guest guest, who has shown up in the host? Is not there? how long they should wait. I don’t know how I would feel very, I would probably wait longer if I had. No, you know what, I guess if I was a client, somebody whose client and they were law, if they were late, and they didn’t tell me ahead of time, I’d be a little bit. I’d be a little upset. So I hope that I answered your questions. Also. I see like lots of questions here. And they’re not Whoa, there’s so many questions where I think you did I know. But I mean, I’m saying I see all these comments, not questions. I see. claros. Follow. Follow back. Follow killer Harris. And I see that no, my questions. Next kit. Let’s talk about her fascinating. What What is this? Can anyone see this? I see it. How is this different than Oh, look, there’s a whole other area. I didn’t even know that was there. Karen Jackson, fascinating. Okay. That’s so weird. How come I’m not seeing I see that. There’s a whole

other area of questions that I had missed. So I see Clara Harris is in the house. Or she was anyway talking there for a second?

Unknown Speaker 17:21
Yeah, why is this different?

Elsie Escobar 17:22
Isn’t it weird? It is weird. I have no idea. Oh my gosh, here we go. And then now john McInnes is like texting us in the middle of this conversation. So yeah, I thought we was an internal chat among participants. But now it’s showing up here in the main chat. That is so weird. I guess it took a little bit of time, maybe. All right. So Karen Jackson, I’ve got, I’ve got a whole workflow for you. And those of you who don’t like to go into the weeds, you’re welcome to leave.

Okay. But now we are going to walk through some of the workflow. So let me first read Karen’s comments. So everybody kind of knows what’s up. And if you have any further questions here, Karen, let me know. And then I will bring you up and you can ask for the mic. And then maybe we can talk through some stuff.

[18:00] So Karen’s question is, what’s your method for inserting a Lipson player into a WordPress post? I just moved my feed to Lipson and I’m hoping to use the publisher hub in my new WordPress site. But I remembered in a previous q&a, you said you prefer to copy paste Lipson player versus using the hub. Thanks, Karen. Karen. I know, Look, she’s exiting now. Because just a slight No. So yes, this is I hope that this is helpful to you, I’ll show you my workflow, because I have, I know that I am a little bit biased. So I’m not necessarily saying that using the plugin is not a good idea. But I am biased in the sense that I have had plugin failures. And I’m not like jet just loves automation. I do not love automation. I always see it as a problem. Sometimes things work, but I’m a little bit concerned that things are not gonna work. And in all honesty, I don’t feel that the Lipson plugin is so oh my gosh, it says that my network is not stable. How is this happening? So it said, what was I saying, Oh, it’s not the best, the Lipson plugin is not the best. And I am very sad to say that, but alas, I do not feel that it is the best. So given that the fact that I don’t like the automation, and I really like to and I’ve also been burned many times when I do my workflow, I use an app called by word. So I am going to go ahead and share my screen with some of these things.

Unknown Speaker 19:55
And we can

Elsie Escobar 19:56
talk about it and then Karen, if you have any further questions, or if anybody Has anything to say about anything, I can bring you on stage or you can have comments in there or whatever. And then we can take it from there. Because I think that this, I hope that this is helpful for y’all. So let me go ahead and find how to share my screen, sharing my screen, and my camera is not I’m not having a good tech time today, I gotta say, no, here we go. Okay. All right.

[20:43] This is an app called by word by word, it is a text editing, or processing app. It primarily uses plain text, and it writes, or I write in markdown, although it can support rich text formatting. The difference between what you see here right in your face right now is that this is what I call or what is known as markdown markdown language syntax. And what rich text means is that it has like the bold, like, when you look at bold or italics, and all of that stuff, it is it’s kind of like painted on the text. You, you I’m sure we’ve all used this, or have seen this in the past, more rich text is supported almost everything everywhere online, including if you’re writing blog posts, and whatnot, that’s the little thing that you see in there. But this is how I write everything inside of my computer is in markdown. And in plain text. This is where I you do my show notes. And I have a way in which that I follow it. So the top part it says title as you can see, and there’s the the title of the podcast is 186 Follow us, then I have this part here that is just like the summary. These are my general calls to action that I have in here anything anytime that you see too little Asterix is that create bold. So anytime in if you’re writing in markdown, if you have too little Asterix is at the beginning and at the end of a sentence, it creates bold. And it’s also a way to, you can actually see it whenever you’re just watching the the post itself. Now, in order to create a hyperlink, you have these brackets. Right, so brackets, and then you have parentheses, and the brackets is the link of the text that you want to be hyperlinked. And then the obviously, the whole this area here with those little brackets or parentheses is the actual link. And this is what it looks like. And so I can very easily write this kind of stuff.

Whenever you see these hash, sort of like number things, if you are using three that immediately creates this part here that quick episode part they are whatever text that is as a header three tag. Anything that comes here you can see like this is just a running list. And whenever you have a running list, it’s would be like you would you would just put like an Asterix and you just make a list. Anytime that you want to have a divider, you just put a bunch of Asterix is together. And that creates like one of those dividers inside of HTML. Same thing for I have my list my link list here. And it’s formatted in the same way it has brackets and then the link has little parentheses on it. So this is sort of like the template that I use all the time, it’s really easy for me to copy and to create, whenever I so that way it’s on my computer. But here’s where the magic comes in. And I hope that this shows up. Let me see, you can have, you can convert this to HTML. So now you see just the plain text stuff that I read, right. But if I do a keyboard shortcut, you can now see it changed as HTML. And it looks so beautiful and so formatted and whatever. And you see how everything looks so lovely. I don’t have much of anything it’s already put in there. What’s great though, is that you can copy the HTML, which is amazing, right? You can export it to a bunch of different ways here. However you want it like whether you want it to be HTML or RTF. Or I think that there’s something else Word docs, or you can publish it but I don’t actually ever use the Publish. You can connect it to WordPress websites, and it automatically just like puts it into will into you can connect it so that it goes straight to your WordPress website. I do Do that. So here are my show notes. And that’s where I begin. But then I can actually copy the HTML. So this is the finished file. And then what I do is I copy the HTML, I go to, I’m going to go ahead and stop screen sharing here. And I am going to go to my website so that you can see how I use this whenever I go into Lipson, really quickly. I have that tab open, but I have also a bazillion different tabs open. So I’m trying to figure out which one I should do. I think it’s this one. Yes. Okay. So then I come inside of Lipson here, and I could go into details. And it was like, 186, follow me, right. And I typed that, but then I just come over here and I, you know, use this one with the little brackets to the sides there. That means that I can put the code in there and I tap the source code, and then I paste that. And this is annoying to me. It happens to me all the time. It’s very annoying. Okay, so then I press Enter. And now I have beautifully formatted things here. I don’t have to worry about it. It’s already done for me. So everything is beautiful. And it looks just this lovely. I can do the same thing. If I go to I wonder if I can just switch. Can you guys see that? I don’t know if I didn’t want to like, stop sharing the screen and then like, share the screen again. Oh, yeah, I do have to do it. How annoying. Okay, sorry, I have to keep sharing the screen every time that I change. I change through the Chrome. Maybe I should just do Chrome. I’ll do Chrome. Where’s chrome? Oh, that’ll be scary. Let’s do the chrome tab. I’m going to show you what it looks like on Lipson five. So Lipson five, this is what the new interface looks like. It’s the same thing. So I essentially would just put the title right at the top. And then it has the ability to do the little bracket thing, image jiggers. And you can go in there. And you can see how everything is formatted there. And I can just press Save, boom shakalaka, it’s already in here, it’s ready to go. You can also see when we put like the widescreen artwork and all of that stuff. So anyway, that’s just neither here or there. I just wanted to show you that it actually works from that perspective. And now I’m going to show you what I do. I’m going to leave this here because I wanted to use the ellipses

and then do the undoing and to do to do Okay, here we go. So same thing over here. And I’m sure that you’ve seen this 186 Follow me this is in the WordPress website, right. So then in text, I always not individual, but I go into text, copy

the Lipson interface again. And for me, this is really easy, because because this, it really takes no time. Like after I’m sharing all this stuff, it takes no time for me to be able to do all of the stuff to copy and paste. So I’m going to actually take you over here and then view no, yes, I’m, I’m sure. We’ll be this. Okay. So I’m like, What am bed and then here’s the link, right? So from all this stuff, one of the reasons that I like this new player too, is because you can change the colors really nicely. And it kind of picks all kinds of colors that go with the artwork that you updated, it automatically picks it but if you really want to use obviously the kind of the color that you really want to use for this, you can add it here and then like, have it be that But anyway, here’s the one that I want to use or whatever. And then I can just go ahead and copy that and go to as you know, go into the supporting one that I have here for for the Lipson stuff by the website for the artwork. And I know this is taking longer because I have to share every single tube. But I think that you all get it. And usually I know obviously from here, I’ll just do this and copy that. And then visually it’s here, right? So we have all of the stuff. There it is Boom, boom, boom. And then I publish that episode. So that’s how I do it, I like to do it via markdown, because what tends to happen is in a lot of the platforms, it doesn’t matter what platform it is, I’m in the middle of it. And it always breaks down, it always breaks down, it’s like something didn’t go upload, the internet goes away, I make some kind of weird mistake, I’m going to let the cat out, give me one second before the pee on the wall.

Unknown Speaker 30:39
There you go.

Elsie Escobar 30:44
And, okay, so, and one of the other reasons that I really love to do this is because given the fact that I have that one file that is in text format, then I can copy and paste that into almost any other platform really quickly for marketing purposes. Anytime that I’m looking for an a link, I can quickly look at those at those show notes and be able to gather those links. And it’s everything is inside of my computer. So if I say oh, my gosh, what was that episode that we were talking about? You know, whatever. Usually, I remember the gist of it was last episode or the one before that. So that has to be Episode 300, I can really quickly because of the nomenclature nomenclature that I’ve been using, be able to access that as well. So yes, maybe from the front face, it’s not going to be like a real quick and easy kind of thing. But because I craft on my show notes outside of WordPress, or outside of any of Lipson of anything at all, I have it accessible to me. So when I’m about to go publish, in terms of publishing, it takes me about five minutes to get it out everywhere and all the different places copy pasting, and I say five minutes only because there are times when I forget to Like it’s usually user error not playing.

And one of the reasons that I interestingly enough, I use separate apps for separate reasons. When it comes to building something in WordPress, with blocks, I use the same thing. But I don’t do the entire post, there are some posts that I use the whole thing, meaning the entire blog post is, is all done in one in one page, the way that you just saw copy, paste, it’s all formatted there, and it’s out. Now that works for me, if I’m going to be crafting a more formatted posts for my website, then I use another another tool. And this one is called I’m gonna write it in here. It’s called Ulysses. And Ulysses is essentially the same type of platform. It is a text processor, plain text processor, and it has the same ability to export in a bunch of different ways. But one of the things that I really love about it is that I can split. Like if I’m writing a very in depth blog post, I will have it in chunks, and then I will put it all together. So chunk one chunk to chunk three, and you can export or copy into your clipboard, that specific bit of HTML. So it’s not the entire entire thing. All the way through. So, yes, once you get used to markdown, yes, I don’t want to know the weeds. Okay, I could swear I saw another question come in here. I’m going to actually tap into that conversation. And I see Terry Terry, I see Terry here. Hi, men. I know that you asked a question. You asked a question about amazon music that we responded to real quick, but alas. So yes, Karen, any questions please let me know if you have any questions about that workflow or if you want clarification, or if you happen to be working on a it was audible getting your podcast on Audible Yes, audible it’s the same as amazon music so if you get it in amazon music, you get it into audible as well, because they’re the same company. So if you I think that we sent you a link to

Unknown Speaker 34:47
that lovely.

Elsie Escobar 34:49
It is automatic. No, you do have to follow that. Well it’s automatic as in like when you submit when you submit into on amazon music You it is through it is audible as well. So it’s both, it’s like one gets you to, I don’t know if you can be in one and not the other. So but you just have to set that destination. I’m just gonna go ahead and give you this from there. So though it’s like an email from this, no, I responded to your email yesterday with the link to that help this article, because you just have to follow that and it, you get it into audible. So you really just have to add a just add the destination in there. It’s fairly easy. It’s like nothing fancy. And it goes into both places. So you can get both of them at the same time. So yeah, yeah, yeah, baby. So Karen Jackson, what do you think? Oh, and yeah, and I think it’s the instability of the player that I’m not too keen on when it comes to using the WordPress plugin. And also, I think one of the reasons that I like doing it my way is because I get an opportunity to put the player where I want to put the player, whereas a lot of plugins give you, I believe I may be wrong. But a lot of plugins give you the option of like at the top or at the bottom. But what if I wanted in the middle, I mean, not that that’s really happened. But I can just do copy, paste, and I can make sure that whatever that template is, works for me, I think that I would probably do my workflow a little bit different. If I was strictly working with blocks inside of WordPress, and I’m, at some point, I’m sure that I’m going to have to get used to it. And At which point, what I’m going to do is I’m probably just going to add one text block, and then use HTML inside of that text block versus adding images with blocks. I think that blocks are great when you are formatting something that is that merits more formatting, for WordPress to make it more beautiful in the way that it looks. But I don’t particularly like to do that when it comes to just my texts, because it’s because I just don’t. I’m annoyed, not thrilled publisher isn’t great. I was hoping for a workflow based on WordPress, like I have with more power press Yeah. So you can still use power press with your workflow. So you don’t have to change that. You can still use power press because there are some folks that love power press and power presses. Power press. Yes, Clara, I do have Elementor as well. And I actually have been using Elementor when I’m crafting

to do all the things that you want it to do, but just not using it as the feed. If you can under if that makes sense to you. I’m sure you just went through the process of having to deal with all of this stuff. But you can still do that. So you don’t have to have two separate feeds. It’s just that the powerpress plugin, as you know, is a very robust plugin. very robust, it has so many different things to it, that you don’t have to use all the things. Now the Lipson, publisher hub does a lot of things. But as of now, as we are here, inside of the sheep podcast, super squad. Currently, the team is focusing on Lipson five, to create stuff. And so the plugin at this moment does not have the team or the care to continue to work on it full time so that it can be all the things. So unfortunately, it’s sort of like let’s make sure that it’s just let’s just put it here and make sure Nope. You know, when you have like a oh my gosh, in fact, I just did this. So this is where I have my iPad. So my iPad is on on this lovely like thing that I adore, right? It’s like it’s a holder for my iPad, and I love it. I mean it’s my favorite. It’s my favorite thing ever, but I just broke the frame that holds the iPad. I don’t know if you can see it but I broke the frame. So this is like it’s a little frame thing. You stick the iPad in there and it holds it nice, but I broke it because I use it so much. So this part right there is broken. And if I had put it in here so that it doesn’t fall out. I put this little piece of

pub Sure hub. Okay. Yeah. So I hope that made sense, Karen, because that was the best metaphor I could give you. It works. But don’t move it here or there. Because it might not. And if something stops working, I don’t know when it’s going to be fixed. So that’s what’s happening with the I know, I’m so sad for you, Karen, too. It is one of those things where we did so much promotion. And it’s amazing. I mean, it’s a really great workflow for so many different reasons. But it doesn’t have the team behind it to really keep it moving forward. And I cannot in all consciousness. suggest people to use it, because you’ll have more. Like, it’ll just be too many problems. And I don’t want that. I don’t want that. So birthday present time. Oh, you know what, Lina? I just broke it. I’m gonna, I’m gonna reach out to the team at 12. South to see if I can get that maybe they’ll maybe they’ll give me a new one. I don’t know. Or maybe there’s like a replacement part for the middle part. But I just love that. Like, I don’t want a new one. I’m thinking of taping all this stuff in there. Anyway, I love I just love the feel of it. I know. I’m so bummed by that. So do we have anything else? Anything else? My love’s over here? Do we have any other questions? We have 20 minutes. For anybody who has any questions or if you want to come and talk with me, I will bring you up if you want to say Hey, what’s up? What’s going on? Because other than that, I don’t really have anything else to cover. From all. Yeah. All this stuff here? Oh, my gosh. I don’t know. Why did you guys, I have to respond to john here. Oh, I guess Jess was very explicit in our recording of the show. But anybody else my love’s, I know that you’re just like sitting there and not talking because I haven’t let anybody not let anybody but coming in grabbing your mic. So how do we feel? What are we doing? What’s going on? Questions, problems? any of that stuff? If not, just let me know. And I will. I will go around, I will go along my way. You guys are my lunch. Oh, good. I’m so glad Clara. You know, lunch would be great. I hate this. Because on Tuesdays, this is Tuesday on Tuesdays, I have a 1030 call, I have an 1130 call, then we have a 1230 call. And then I come and do this every other Tuesday. And so in that whole time, I often forget to eat. And this is not a good thing. Because right now I’m kind of hungry. And and then what happens is, I’ll get to the point, and I’m sure you all know this, I get to the point where I’m starving. And so then you go into the kitchen, and anything that is readily available I shove in my mouth. And that’s not great. Not a great choice because I often go for crunchy things that are easily in a bag. Right?

Let’s test the grab the mic. All right. Let’s go ahead. Karen Jackson. Why don’t you Well, if you want to test grab the mic. I mean, I’m putting you on the spot even though I’m sure I mean you didn’t even Yeah, Clif Bars. Oh my god. Yeah, I’ve got some of those bars, but then it gives my hunger away and I kind of don’t want to give my whole hunger away, which is, that’s the thing I didn’t want. Alright, so Karen Jackson.

[44:02] Let’s test grab the mic. I’m gonna give you the mic. If you can I just shove a mic in front of your face. No, I can. That would be weird. What is it? That’s it like I know, you sound like just be like, Here take it. No, I can’t.

Because it’s like it just says I can delete your comment trying not working. Oh, no. manage the mic. When attendees asked to chat with you. You can manage the requests here. Mic requests, you can turn off requests. I’ll turn off requests and then I will turn them on again, just for maybe it’s maybe it’s stuck. My toilet

flushing thingy got all messed up. I’m sorry, Karen. That really sucks. And I can’t just bring you over some things. With my browser and video Oh, well, that’s weird. Are you on Chrome? I, in all honesty, like right now, I still can’t change my audio like, I can hear myself in my ears on my road caster Pro. But the computer audio is still the browser I have forgot to do that. Anyway, oh my god, it’s craziness. Well, I’m sorry. I’m sorry, you couldn’t come in and talk with me about all the things. And particularly markdown related because I’m such a markdown person. And all on I don’t know what I would do without markdown in my life. Oh, it says video. I’m sorry, Karen. That’s dumb. Can’t you just come on camera without a camera? It’s passed the mic. Not guess the camera. So that’s not good. We can tell that I cannot either. It says that my camera doesn’t work. Oh, great. I’m annoyed by all of it. Now. That sucks. I think we might have to. I’ll have to. Maybe this is a better platform for like,

open to that. Is this annoying? just annoying that you’re doing around the world stuff like this? And it might be easier for apparently not. Oh, actually. Oh, yes. I see that. Yeah, better for presentation. It seems. Yeah. So I think that Lina will, Lina I know that you liked it before? Yeah, might as well, right? We might have to, I think that Jess is going to test it out next week. But then maybe we can switch things around based on the type of content that we’re putting out there. And like this would be sort of like, more presentation like a little bit more presentation. Like if we’re going to be doing something like like a little bit of a tutorial.

This is going to be a bunch of things. But if I go like that, and can you see that screen, you can see that screen, right? And then I’ll switch it here. I just kind of wanted to be able to present and keep going oh my god. It’s not. It’s not doing so good. Yeah, I don’t like that. Huh? Because I wanted to take you from screen to screen to screen. Meaning, you know, when I was talking about the workflow of copy, paste here, copy paste here, I had all the tabs open, so I wouldn’t have to waste so much time going in and out. But it looks like it looks like I would have to do that. So I would have to grab, I couldn’t do the entire screen unless I did the entire screen. Let me try that. I’m going to do this one more time. Hold on one second. I’m going to do I’m on mobile, and it’s not very nimble to adjust how the screenshare is seen. So it’s easier to read. Oh, yeah. Cuz in the unzoom, you can like, expand it right. Like I love that about zoom. I had no idea you could do that. Brilliant. Okay, I’m gonna try one more thing. Let me see how this works. Okay, I’m gonna do that. I’m gonna put that on Twitter real quick. So that I can see what that looks like. Oh, it’s still a pain. I don’t like it. Huh? All right. It didn’t really work what I wanted to do I if it if it’s a specific app, then it works great. Yeah, you have Google Chrome. I’m on Google Chrome too. So I’m gonna just have just use it next week. I’ll have her us around the world next week. And then I feel that we need to just figure out what the best use case is for this. Because our q&a is here. I do feel leyna You are right. You mentioned last time that seeing us you know, seeing everybody I think does have a sort of nice quality to it. One of the things that I like is that the chat is on that side. And it’s nice. And I feel like when I’m on zoom, it’s harder for me to keep up with the chat. But there’s a lot of bonus stuff that comes with a zoom. video camera, your browser permissions not allow camera views for this site. Yeah, it feels to me that there is some funkiness going on with the way that it’s set up there. And if it’s going to be about me sharing the mic with you all and giving you the opportunity to speak, I’d rather I’d rather like unmute you, it’s so much easier for me to just unmute you, and to see everybody there than it is for me to have to do this. I think that there’s a time and a place for this. And maybe we can do like, like a networking event or something every quarter or if it’s going to be a little bit more on the presentation style to do something like this would be lovely. But I’m not getting a sense that this would be a really good, great thing for a q&a, because I feel it is a little like you’re making people like jump through hoops, and they don’t really need to be jumping through hoops. We just need somebody to just get in there and do the q&a. And it’s the least amount of friction is kind of what I’m feeling from this. So anywho All right, last call y’all for comment, questions, anything that you need? Um, yeah. And then I will. Yeah, that’s it. Let me look for it really quickly. I’m just going to, to see if I got any questions on the text. Oh, and Patrick wanted to join. And he’s I think that he sent me a picture. He sent me an attachment of sorts, but I can’t see. Oh, not hosting or speaking at any events. It says that they got Oh, that’s a bummer. See? Then we had a problem here from Patrick. I’ll put this put it on the screen. He says that he got like that thing there. He’s got a little ghost. You got a ghost. That sucks. Yeah. Bummer. All right. Well,

thank you. I really appreciate you spending your lunchtime with me or your non lunchtime with me, Lena, your afternoon, evening, your evening. Time, your supper time. So we can I’m going to move on then. And I will follow up I met you know, I was very exciting. I’m excited. Thank you. So thanks so much for showing up. Thanks for testing out some things with me in front trying to figure out some of the best practices for this stuff. And it’s kind of feeling like it might be a little bit too much. So if you have any questions, or if you want any other of the links, just go ahead and follow up with me. If you’re not part of the text. conversations, please sign up. Because it is just so much easier for me to communicate with you easily. Yeah. Anyway, thank you. I so appreciate it. And Karen, I’m going to have Jess follow up with you about your email and see how to change that so that you can have whatever whatever is best for you in that respect. Okay. I love you all very much. Thank you for showing up and giving me some time and I hope that you got a little bit out of this whole thing. So I will see you I will see you on next Monday for a lot of y’all. Okay, bye.
