  1. I just finished listening to your rant on Apple killing the 3.5mm audio jack. You are the first podcaster to express my frustration. I listen to a lot of podcasts and most are supportive of the removal. Why? If you don’t need the jack, don’t use it but leave it for those of us who have a need for it. I am a headphone aficionado and a frequent poster at head-fi.org. Although I have decent Bluetooth headphones, I still want to be able to plug in my better headphones. Also, I’m not sure how this would effect listening on a plane (is Bluetooth acceptable on a flight). A dongle would be very inconvenient. Seriously, shaving a little thickness is just not needed, especially at the expense of this necessary jack.
    BTW, I am your neighbor. I live in Augusta, MI so it’s nice to hear a local guy. Your OWC radio is always interesting too and has introduced me to new authors, podcasters, and more. Thanks!
