Podcast tech tip for resetting android radio connections

If you have an android car stereo for BT streaming (and who doesn’t these days) and are having problems playing certain podcast episodes, here a solution.

The title of the podcast episode may have a special character (like a ‰x) or be too long. This will cause the display to crash, and that may freeze or reset the whole device.

I’ve also had trouble with long podcast descriptions with special characters in the rss feed crashing devices and podcast players.

The less you put in the title and feed, the better your feed will perform in this buggy software world.

This took me quite some time to figure out. I even had to listen to a horrible podcast. on the subject to figure it out.

Fred explains economics

Today, FOE will explain economics, fraud, unemployment, and the end of the world. There will no longer be a need for economists, if there ever was. You will understand everything.FOE is that sort of column.Long ago, everybody worked on farms, growing food. This was a real service. People wanted food. They liked to eat it. At the same time, there was a tremendous demand for refrigerators and cars. People didn’t know they wanted these things because they hadn’t been invented. But they wanted them anyway.
