‘Dr. Foth’ was a force in Canadian journalism

One of my favorite writers.

There are no writers, at least in Canada, who can write like him.

Back when politics was a gentleman’s sport.

Allan Fotheringham, “Dr. Foth” as he was known to his readers, was what we used to call a “Big Foot” columnist in journalism.

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.
