This is one of my favorite types of photography–Photo Booth style.
My subject: the lovely Bethany.
Each week we meet up at the TuneIn.com studios in Venice Beach to record the #TalkingTech roundtable podcast. We weigh in on the week’s tech news and have lots of laughs. We always get a great, diverse crowd, industry insiders, tech startups and best of all, outside voices, like my mom, my pal Stephan Cooper, the photographer, and actress Tanjareen. They help keep us on balance.
Best of all–photographing the gang before and after the show.
Here are some of my favorites:
Beyond writing and making videos, I also love to podcast. I bring the IK Multimedia iRig HD mic with me everywhere I go–just in case the muse hits me, and I’m raring to go.
I also visit the TuneIn.com studios in Venice Beach each week for a living #TalkingTech roundtable conversation with tech gurus, and often do one-on-one audio interviews there as well.
So, for your listening pleasure, here’s the best of 2015, in audio form, so far. We begin with the panel discussion on Apple’s reported interest in the connected car, recorded at TuneIn, and then we take you to another round table. At the South by Southwest festival, we rented a house for USA TODAY staffers, and sat around the kitchen table one night describing the wild scene that was SXSW at night.
Further down, two memorable one-on-one interviews–JibJab CEO Gregg Spiridellis tells why Valentine’s is his second favorite holiday, and Judy Graham talks tech with her son. (That’s me.) Mom is a YouTube star with over 12 million views for her how-to-knit videos.
Then listen to my chat with San Francisco investor and master photographer Chris Michel.

Back to the Future 2015
Here are 12 video highlights from 2015, which include on the scene reporting from CES,. South by Southwest, NAMM, Apple events, Venice Beach and Hollywood Blvd.
Covering the South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas is one of the great treats.
I’ve pulled some of our favorite videos and audio podcasts from the event. From flying cars and reading squirrels to the Wobble, it’s all here.
