Bunker Project Episode 79:

Macadamia Nuts and Joomla

We are already on our fourth beer starting off the show because weve been doing voice overs all afternoon!

The Mighty Quin from The Art of Podcasting interviewed Andrew and Bob for his show earlier today. And he is here at the bar joining us at the Bunker Bar! And Andrew gets to use the Heil PR-40 today Quin brought it up with him. He is keeping his Electro-Voice RE20 to himself though.

Quin talks about his podcasts.

The Chairborne Commandos a podcast for US Veterans

The Art of Podcasting

Andrew is exhausted because he just flew in from Hawaii and didnt get any sleep on the plane

but he brought the Macadamia Nuts back for everyone and we are doing a black beer macadamia nut pairing.

Arik asks what the Podcasting Culture is like in the United States compared to here?

Quin said that the Bunker Project podcast is where it is at combining an offline meeting and a podcast. Very Cool.

Quin tells his story about getting harassed at the border.

Hilarious story about his experience driving to Vancouver for the show listen to the show to hear it.

The feature topic:

Joomla

  • Joomla is a content management system
  • Professional Grade Website
  • Tons of Plugins and Widgets more than WordPress
  • Plugins focus on business apps
  • WordPress plugins focus on Social Media and plugins that appeal to bloggers

WordPress is great for the DIY webmaster or blogger but if you’re in business, Kurt and Sanj agree that Joomla or Drupal is the way to go.

See you next week same Bunker Time, same Bunker station.
