Our next stop on the Road to Macstock Conference & Expo is a conversation with Allison Sheridan. We start out reviewing how a previous Road to Macstock session resulted in a change to Allison’s topic before trying to figure out what she will present this year. Along the way ideas were proposed, discussed, and rejected. She finally decided on a topic…or did she?

Allison Sheridan started podcasting in May of 2005, just 7 months after podcasting was invented, and her primary show, the NosillaCast has come out every week without missing an episode since late 2005. She now produces Chit Chat Across the Pond as a separate podcast that is also released weekly. NosillaCast and Chit Chat Across the Pond audio content and associated blog posts are created and edited by Allison.
Allison has a Master’s of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from UCLA with an emphasis in Kinematics. Her love of technology really took off when she and her husband Steve bought a 512K Mac in 1984.
During industry events such as NAB, CES, Macworld, CSUN’s Assistive Technology Conference, and Mac Mania Cruises, Allison conducts interviews and presentations while NosillaCast videographer Steve Sheridan records, edits and produces them. Associated blog posts and social media presence are also managed by Steve.
Her partner in crime on many of the shows is Bart Busschots who co-hosts Chit Chat Across the Pond every other week. He brings the propeller-beanie style episodes with his series Taming the Terminal and Programming By Stealth. Bart is a well informed, engaging instructor and he keeps detailed tutorial show notes over at bartbusschots.ie.
In addition to hosting her own shows, Allison has been a guest on MacBreak Weekly, Daily Tech News Show, Clockwise, Cordkillers, SMR Podcast, Tech’s Message, Ritual Misery and The Productive Woman Podcast.
She also creates video tutorials for ScreenCasts Online and is a freelance writer for SCO Magazine. She’s been a speaker on the Mac Geek Cruise, Macworld, BlogWorld & New Media Expo, Macstock, and at many Southern California Mac User Groups.
Allison dedicates a considerable amount her time learning and talking about assistive technologies, especially for the blind. In her spare time she exercises like a demon.
Without the support of Steve, none of this would be possible.
