The AwesomeCast podcast hosted by Michael Sorg and Katie Dudas welcomes musical guest Kidmental for a lively discussion of technology and culture. The show begins by highlighting Kidmental's musical talents, with him providing custom intro songs and sound effects throughout the episode. Kidmental demonstrates his impressive beatboxing and looping skills using analog hardware like the RC 505 loop station.
The hosts then recap their recent trip to rural Ohio, hilariously detailing their visits to strange roadside attractions like a massive empty basket building and a 24-foot tall cuckoo clock. Shifting to tech news, they analyze Apple's latest product announcements including the new Ultra Apple Watch aimed at extreme athletes and the iPhone 15 Pro with advanced camera capabilities like automatic portrait mode.
Sorg and Dudas share their hands-on experiences testing out Honda's impressive wind tunnel and crash test facilities. With helpful context and enthusiasm, they evaluate how the new Apple features could benefit media creators. Kidmental pops in with funny reactions as Sorg geeks out about playing console-quality iOS games on the go and directly recording videos to external drives using the new USB-C port. Overall, the conversational tone provides an accessible yet insightful take on how tech innovations intersect with art and culture.
