- "Fly With Me"

Taking a brief break from the Mac testing to introduce a podcast I
discovered recently - Fly With Me <http://joepodcaster.libsyn.com/>
produced by 'JoePodcaster' - a guy who is a pilot for a major U.S. air
carrier. Normally I would not post about a non-access tech related
podcast on this blog, but episode eleven (11) caught my ear enough that
I just had to share. Here is the link to the mp3 download
<http://media.libsyn.com/media/joepodcaster/fwm-011.mp3> .

In episode eleven, Joe interviews a listener who has a bit of a
technology/computer background with a dream of learning how to pilot a
helicopter. What makes this relevant to ATHEN is that this gentleman is
blind and during the interview they discuss the auditory and tactile
side of aircraft controls
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aircraft_flight_control_systems> .

I recommend the entire podcast - all 14 episodes and then some. I
especially enjoyed episodes 8 and 8.5 "When Things Go Wrong" and episode
12 wih the real life "Snake on a Plane". Listen and enjoy.
