    Trampled Underfoot Podcast – 163 – The Spy Who Tagged Me

    There are countless benefits we enjoy from tech. The more it advances, the broader our options. But there’s always a catch with every new gadget that comes out. There’s this relatively new Air Tag by Apple, and it’s the size of a coin. With it, folks can keep an eye on all sorts of things from luggage to their pets. However, some folk may use it for nefarious proposes too. What if the device was used to track you? On this episode of the Trampled Underfoot Podcast, the question is, should their be an app, for safety reasons, to warn folks if they’re being tracked or spied on? And should…

    Trampled Underfoot Podcast – 162 – I Got My Hush Puppies On

    In this episode of the Trampled Underfoot Podcast, Mark Lindsay and Eloy Escagedo discuss their most recent absence. Spoiler Alert – it’s all Mark’s fault. The two then branch out in a few directions based on the topic at hand. Without giving too much away here, is there a social engineering aspect to the control of social media outlets? Are there topics that are seen by some as taboo, and should never be discussed? Who makes that decision? Is it a decision that should even be made? Lots of questions and personal opinion in this episode as the hosts discuss life, the universe, and everything in this very personal episode…

    Trampled Underfoot Podcast – 157 – Ramen Cake and Condition 1

    In this episode of the Trampled Underfoot Podcast, Eloy Escagedo and Mark Lindsay go off on some wild tangents – no big surprise there, right? But would you have ever associated Amazon reviews, a Tinder match on Antarctica, and the divisiveness of social media, with the spread of the English language? Well, neither would we. The hosts do a fine job of connecting those wildly spread dots to give you a semi-cohesive, semi-compelling, and hopefully semi-entertaining listening experience. It’s just weird, and we think you’ll enjoy the conversation. So, pull up a slice of Ramen Apple Pie, sit back, relax, and have fun with this eclectic episode of the Trampled…

    Trampled Underfoot Podcast – Episode 76 – Shining Like a National Guitar

    Shining Like a National Guitar – Episode 76 The imagery that lyrics invoke in songs can be very powerful. They can take us back in time to the place we first heard them. They’re like an anchor or placeholder in a way, if you think about it. Lyrics set to music can also launch us into new worlds altogether. The mind is a powerful instrument and certain themes and stories told through music are mysterious to us still. Mark Lindsay and Eloy Escagedo talk about this topic using the song Graceland by Paul Simon as an example. The hosts then get into the conversation of famous guitars. We’ve all heard…

    Trampled Underfoot Podcast – Episode 51 – Neighbors are Nosy and People are Oblivious

    In this day and age, YouTube celebrity stature can be thrust upon someone and it’s possibly more powerful than say, Hollywood famous.

    Trampled Underfoot – 017 – Midlife is the New Spring Chicken

    In This Episode Mark and Eloy are once again joined by Steve Nealon! Are you always being boxed into a certain role by people and the world at large? Do folks pick one attribute of yours and type cast you forever in that part? It’s also easy to type cast yourself too. It’s easy to close yourself off. We discuss this topic in the context of projects, work, and social life. Trampled Underfoot also talk about the theft of ideas. You build an item and folks take those product photos off of Instagram and Facebook and post them as their own online. What is the line between free to copy…
