Intro to podcast

January 21, 2014

Dear Friend,

Thanks for forwarding on this message to people who might be good candidates for being a guest on my podcast.

My podcast is Making Embedded Systems, the show for people who love gadgets. Usually more about the development of gadgets than actual gadgets, the audience consists mostly of hardware and software engineers.

The show is in iTunes, Instacast, and Stitcher or you can get it directly from

I’m interested in talking to folks about their gadgets: how does it work? how did you develop it? how did you fund it? what’s your favorite tool? did you set up a manufacturing line and where? how do you teach people to do this?

If any of those could be something you can chat with me about (either personal projects or professional), then I’d be happy to send more details about how it works.

The summary is that it takes about 90 minutes of your time, it isn’t live so mistakes can be removed, and you shouldn’t have to prep much since I want to talk to you about something you already know. I prefer to record in my home studio near San Jose and Campbell, California but we can do recording via the Internet.

While this is sort of advertising for for my book and our consulting company, we don’t really discuss them (except to say, yep, still there). I do this mostly because I like to talk to interesting people about their jobs… and maybe to have a few more more women’s voices talking about technology (but not necessarily about being women-in-tech). That isn’t to say it is only women guests, if you’ve got a widget that you are enthusiastic about, I’m open to lots of topics.

Interested? Know someone who might be interested? Please send a message

Thank you!
