Welcome to the podcast

The Beyond Devices podcast is brought to you by Jan Dawson and Aaron Miller. Jan is the author of the Beyond Devices blog, as well as the owner and Chief Analyst at Jackdaw Research, a research and advisory firm focused on the consumer electronics market. Aaron is a business school professor, but in a past life ran one of the most popular iMovie blogs and co-authored several books in the iMovie: the Missing Manual series with David Pogue, and remains an avid follower of all things Apple.

In March 2017, starting with Week 87, we changed up our format and split the podcast into two parts, each comprising what used to be a segment in our original format:

  • Question of the Week (QotW) – in these episodes, we do a deep dive around a topical question, with either one of us or a guest answering questions based on their expertise and/or research on the topic. Our intention is to publish these episodes on Wednesday or Thursday each week.
  • News Roundup – in these episodes, we briefly discuss several news items from the week, pulled from Jan’s Tech Narratives service, which provides short commentary on the week’s tech news and puts it in context.

You might like to see our full listing of past episodes, our past Questions of the Week, or our Weekly Picks.

Jan can be found on Twitter at @jandawson, while Aaron is @aaronmiller. We welcome your feedback on any of our episodes or the podcast in general.
