Episode 27: COVID-19 perspectives experiences and fears from around the world, new hardware and software from Apple, and yea for accessible Rubik’s cubes

Hi Mosen at Largers. This week’s show is a little longer than usual to give you a bit more fresh content to listen to. It also demonstrates the amazing sense of community we’ve built up in the last 21 years I’ve been connected with you via Internet radio and podcasting.

Please note that to keep our community in touch with one another and to provide some connection during this difficult time, whenever possible I will be hosting my show on Mushroom FM during the week live, twice a day from Monday to Friday. There will be a new show at 2 AM US Eastern time and another new show at 2 PM US Eastern time. For details about where that is where you are, check the Mushroom FM schedule.

This week on the show.
