@coboldragon @ppatel What is this series about? I've heard of it a little, but have no idea what its like.

Earlier tonight I saw several people on here mention the Rudolph Christmas special. I assume it must have been on TV. Anyway, it got me thinking about the episode of Geekology that @dhsholly, Eric Troup and I did about Rudolph back in 2014. Geekology was a pop culture Podcast that Holly and I attempted to get started back then. I went back and listened to the episode, and I think it still holds up. There are some weird things in the Rudolph special when watching it as an adult.

New! The Maccessibility Roundtable Podcast, episode 248, You Know How It Is in Canada. Featuring: @ShellyBrisbin@journa.host, @DHSDarcy, @dhsholly, @SteveSawczyn, and Robin Christopherson (who I don't believe is on Mastodon yet).
In this episode we discuss: Mastodon, the Roomba, VOCR, and more.

@ppatel does the site show new releases? Can you see them on the app too?

With new advances in "AI" and "Machine Learning", we can incorrectly assume that correlation equals causation _millions_ of times faster than before!

Tomorrow at 4 PM Eastern we'll be streaming the next episode of the Maccessibility Roundtable Podcast. Topics will include: More on Mastodon, VOCR, and more. If you'd like to interact with the show, you can do that using the hashtag.

Why is it that the goodreads monthly new release emails don't have the new releases of authors I follow anymore? Its really irritating, and making me miss stuff I would want to read.

@lioncourt I love having that the next day for lunch and regular leftovers for dinner. I really like thanksgiving food. :)

@ScottBlanks It was being passed through for me in nashville with WSMV on directv satellite, however it was very quiet. I couldn't understand most of what was being said. I was a little disappointed, because I look forward to the parade every year.

Anyone getting audio description for the maseys thanksgiving day parade? I am getting it, but its very quiet.

New! The Maccessibility Roundtable Podcast, Episode 247, Special Scorings. Featuring: @DHSDarcy, @dhsholly, Robert Carter, and Robin Christopherson.
This episode primarily deals with Mastodon. Hopefully we didn't get too much wrong, but if we did, please let me know.

I'm trying to learn to knit. I'm currently calculating how far and fast I can throw these knitting needles so that they get lost and I can give up because oh no, they are lost! I have been working on the knit stitch for like 3 weeks now, and I'm just struggling.

@Camillianna I am also plus sized. And I completely get everything you say here.

So I’m going to be extremely open and transparent on here because I know that I’m not the only person who’s ever faced this. So I’m a plus sized woman and have faced many moments of people feeling that their being “Helpful.” And thinking their doing the right thing, but their comments are hurtful. When you walk up to someone and they say things like, “Before you go on your trip I wish you would have lost fifty pounds,.” Or, “Do you even think about losing weight?” Or things like that. Then they give you the long list of things that can happen to you if you don’t loose weight, I don’t know about anyone else, but that stresses me out more, and it makes me want to eat. I’ve done the working out thing, and eventually I lose faith because i feel like I’m doing it all alone. And if people are just so concerned about people and how big they are, they should do activities with them, find things that the person can do with that person instead of saying the same damn thing over and over, because words hurt, and the help that people are thinking their giving, just hurts. I don’t talk about my weight with people because they’ve made me feel huge and ugly. It’s not fair, and I think it’s a topic we should be discussing, bringing aware to the fact that some of us that are big, there’s a major emotional meaning behind it all. To all my fluffy people, know that you’re beautiful no matter your size, and someone loves you.
