June usually finds us talking about Apple and games thanks to WWDC and E3 respectively. Jesse Anderson
slides down a warp pipe to talk about the big gaming event, his recent purchase of an Oculus Quest and his speaking engagement at the Games Accessibility Conference
this past March in San Francisco. We have news and a great report on cord cutting in "Sound Off". And possibly the wildest tip we've had in quite some time. So, grab your power gloves and listen in to hear what J.J. calls his favorite "Last Word" this year.
Thousands of developers and programmers headed west to San Jose for Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference this week. And our own BBQ Crew Member Shelly Brisbin was amongst the attendees during the main keynote. Tune in to hear an on-the-spot report from her, as well as, Byron Lee and Scott Davert joining Joe to discuss the big announcements in this wrap up format show.
The long U.S. holiday, that coincides with the release of episode 182, was good for the BBQ Crew as we return refreshed and renewed. Proof is in the recordings they say, okay we're the only ones who say that really, as we come to you with actual news. Also, Ricky stops by to talk about new hardware. A listener Oreo follow-up in "Sound Off", a tip plus a "Last Word" that any audio engineer would love rounds out this pre-WWDC show.
Features abound this week as we look at what's new for Windows 10 in the recently released 2019 Spring Update. Winston Chen joins us to give some amazing insight into the creation of the new VoiceDream Scanner app for iOS. We also tell you about a fantastic new contest where you can win an iPhone and other prizes from AIRA. And, on top of all that, we celebrate Mickey mouse's 90th birthday while humming a popular tune in the "Last Word". Time to watch those progress bars move ever so slowly while you listen to BBQ 182.
We have a treat in store this week. Sure there is Joe and J.J. saying blah, blah, blah news and silly things per the usual. And you would think that this is just your run of the mill episode. How about we tell you that Patrick is on board with some talk about Bluetooth devices? Yeah, now we piqued some interest. Of course we still have a tip featuring a Tile demo, "Sound Off", "Last Word" and a bit of a tease about an upcoming event to round things out too. C'mon and fire up those devices and connect to the loudest speakers you can find for the best enjoyment of BBQ 181.
The BBQ Crew returns to the studio to delve into the highlights from the 2019 Google i/o keynote. We also have an interview with a maker of some tasty products, Angela Fowler of Gliding Eagle Jerky. And David Ward stops by again to pass along another Amazon Echo tip. All of this, plus the "Last Word", is in store for you in episode 180.
This week finds J.J. on the road, and recording from April's Michigan AER convention. Joe is preparing for his return trip to Starkville to teach A.T. for MSU. And is not totally doing accessibility testing of the recent release of Mortal Kombat 11. Nope, not at all testing the new spoken menus in the game. Er, um, this week is a features format of the BBQ with an interview with Microsoft and Be My Eyes. David Ward joins us for the first time with a submitted tip. Also, there are some new product mentions in-between these two interviews you don't want to miss. Now load your photos into the buffer and join us for BBQ 179.

Time for some spring cleaning as the BBQ Crew sweeps out the cobwebs from the studio for an actual, gasp! in-studio recording of a podcast. Karthik Kannan drops by to pull back the studio curtains to shed some light in here, and on what's happening with Envision AI. A tip, "Sound Off" and a non-food-related "Last Word" round out the episode. Don't get too comfortable or we'll ask you to grab a dust pan and join us in cleaning up the place on BBQ 178.
