Learn By Doing

In this episode Nicnac traces how they came into podcasting and attempts to convey what they are aspiring towards along with how their own experiences and limitations have shaped their work. Nicnac is excited about the process of taking their work to the next level and thankful for all who have contributed to the craft and taught it to them. Having a podcast that combines Nicnac’s unique interests, strife and limitations is interesting. It seems to work almost despite itself. Nicnac hopes you will continue to join them on this journey wherever it may lead.

Fifteen Years of Podcasting

In The Nicnacjak Podcast Season 14 finale Nicolas reflects on their 15 years in podcasting and broadcasting. An unplanned career move that turned out reasonably well.

Finely, Nicolas talks about their laptop troubles which have now piled on to the ongoing desktop drama and the struggle to back up to the cloud.
