Vic Elizabeth Turnball: [00:00:00] Hello, before you get to this episode of Between Two Mics, I want to tell you a little bit about Mic’s Podcast Club. I’m Vic Elizabeth Turnbull, a podcast producer based in the UK. And I love SquadCast. I use all the time to do all of my remote recordings. Now, Mics Podcast Club is a monthly meetup and community for podcasters from everywhere. Mic’s Podcast Club exists to help podcasters to help each other make absolutely brilliant podcasts. To find out more and to join the community and RSVP to one of our upcoming meet ups online, may I add, head to meetup dotcom forward slash mic pod, that’s m i c p o d. Our next meetup is on the 8th of September and we have podcasting legend Olly Mann from Answer Me This, coming to do a little Q&A with our community. I’ll see you then. Right. Let’s get to Between Two Mics.  [00:01:05][65.1]

Rock Felder: [00:01:09] Hey, listener, Rock here. Thank you for tuning in to this episode of Between Two Mics. This is a series we’re calling Squad Stories. While Zach is away, we thought it’d be fun to bring you interviews with the rest of the SquadCast team. But as always, we want to hear your Squad story. So please head over to SquadCast dot fm slash share to submit a SquadShot, an audio clip or really anything. We just want to amplify you on all of our socials. In this episode, we talk with Anthony Pelot. Anthony is a software engineer here at SquadCast. And Anthony and I chat about what makes him a true full stack engineer. More on that later, but also his eclectic background, ranging from musician to gamer to skater. And finally, what it’s like to build software for creators. Thanks, as always, for listening. Hope you enjoy.  [00:02:01][52.5]

Zach Moreno: [00:02:02] Welcome to Between Two Mics, the podcast that brings you remote recording resources from SquadCast dot FM.  [00:02:09][6.5]

Rock Felder: [00:02:10] I’m Rock Felder, co-founder and CFO of SquadCast,  [00:02:13][2.8]

Zach Moreno: [00:02:14] and I’m Zach Moreno, co-founder and CEO.  [00:02:16][2.3]

Rock Felder: [00:02:18] On Between Two Mics, we bring you interviews with podcasters, experts in the field of remote recording. We discuss current events in podcasting and so much more.  [00:02:27][8.8]

Zach Moreno: [00:02:27] Twice a month you’ll hear a Founders’ episode. That’s just the two of us chatting about all things remote recording updates to SquadCast, what we’re up to and what we’re listening to.  [00:02:38][11.0]

Rock Felder: [00:02:39] The other two weeks of the month, we’ll bring you interview episodes. Zach and I will sit down with experts in the podcast Space to discuss their companies, their podcasts, their thoughts on podcasting, creating content and more.  [00:02:51][12.2]

Zach Moreno: [00:02:53] The most exciting part? We’re recording all of this on SquadCast, the best place to record remote audio and video interviews in studio quality.  [00:03:02][9.2]

Rock Felder: [00:03:03] So let’s get Between Two Mics.  [00:03:05][2.8]

Rock Felder: [00:03:08] Anthony Pelot, thank you for joining us today. Software engineer at SquadCast. You’ve been with us a couple of months now. How are you doing?  [00:03:14][6.1]

Anthony Pelot: [00:03:14] Good, good. I’m having a blast so far. This is an incredible community to be working with and building stuff for.  [00:03:21][7.0]

Rock Felder: [00:03:22] Well, couldn’t be more happy to have you on board. And we’re going to talk about all that stuff today, all the things you’re doing as a software engineer here at SquadCast. But before we get into that, I wanted to talk about who are you? Who’s Anthony?  [00:03:33][10.4]

Anthony Pelot: [00:03:33] Man, that’s an interesting question. Who am I?  [00:03:36][2.3]

Rock Felder: [00:03:36] It is.  [00:03:36][0.1]

Anthony Pelot: [00:03:36] I mean, to start off, I’m a nerd. I am, deep down in my core. I’m a huge nerd. I’m into gaming D&D tabletop gaming, video games. You know, I used to be a skater, bit of a punk rock kind of kid back in high school. So I play a lot of music and actually even, get it into the bluegrass music with my family band.  [00:03:57][20.6]

Rock Felder: [00:03:58] I get the feeling you’re very eclectic and I find you fascinating. You have your hands and like all these different activities. But did I just hear you have a family band? I think that’s a new one. [00:04:06][8.0]

Anthony Pelot: [00:04:07] Yeah. I actually I have a funny picture right here that my mom sent me just about a week ago, found an old picture of me playing along with my grandpa.  [00:04:17][9.4]

Rock Felder: [00:04:18] Ah, that’s amazing.  [00:04:19][0.6]

Anthony Pelot: [00:04:20] I’m actually on the fiddle there.  [00:04:21][1.3]

Rock Felder: [00:04:22] I see ya, ya little fiddler.  [00:04:23][1.1]

Anthony Pelot: [00:04:23] That was kind of how I grew up. Big musical family and very large family. I grew up in Idaho. So up in the mountains, basically, as you can see in the picture, we are back in the mountains somewhere just playing music for fun. And yeah, that was how I grew up, was kind of disconnected from tech for a while and got introduced to it probably, I was just getting into high school and it just opened up a whole new world for me. It kind of split tracks for me and suddenly I was into music and computers.  [00:04:55][31.5]

Rock Felder: [00:04:56] Wow. So still have that audio background, huh?  [00:04:58][2.6]

Anthony Pelot: [00:04:59] Yeah. Yeah. And working with the bands that I’ve played in both the bluegrass and the punk rock bands I played in back in high school, one of the key things that really attracted me to it was the technology side, building up the systems and doing the mixing. And we even recorded a couple of CDs, both for ourselves and other bands that we were playing with. We’d set up our whole living room with mixing boards and microphones and we had a ten piece ska band in there for a week. It was pretty great.  [00:05:25][26.0]

Rock Felder: [00:05:25] Wow. Do you still play as a family or do you play for yourself? And what else do you play? It looks like you fiddle a little bit, but I imagine you fiddle with other things, too, right?  [00:05:35][9.1]

Anthony Pelot: [00:05:35] Oh, yeah, fiddle with it. So the family still plays. I play with them when I go back to Idaho to visit. But they actually just last weekend went and performed at a bluegrass festival in Banach, Montana. It’s a ghost town. It’s very tiny. They do like old Western shootouts, and you can watch them blow glass. And it’s all during this bluegrass festival where rather than having stages, the bluegrass bands actually roam around the ghost town and they’ll set up on the porch of the old church or, you know, in the schoolhouse, and they’ll play for a couple hours. And as you’re wandering around, there’s just different groups of music going on.  [00:06:11][35.5]

Rock Felder: [00:06:11] That’s really cool. And it kind of makes sense to me why SquadCast, or the podcast community is a good fit because you have this audio background. Like you said, you’re your nerd, a gamer, gaming and podcasting. They kind of swim in similar circles.  [00:06:24][13.3]

Anthony Pelot: [00:06:25] Yeah.  [00:06:25][0.0]

Rock Felder: [00:06:26] What would you say, though, you’re the the nerdiest at when it comes to these nerdy topics? And I feel like nerd is the wrong word because it’s just it’s more like passion. Obsession. Yeah, exactly. Exactly.  [00:06:36][10.4]

Anthony Pelot: [00:06:37] Yeah. As far as where I am the most nerdy, it’s, it’s got to be into the D and D style of gaming, but mixed in a weird way with, with computers. The way I even got into software engineering was exploring fantasy books when I was young, read tons and tons of fantasy books and just loved living in that fantasy world. And I didn’t have friends that played D & D, they didn’t introduce me to the game that way. I was on the Internet back prodigy CompuServe early AOL and the online games at the time were purely text-based, that you just chatted with people and you could emote and play your character and run around and fight and group up with people, but it was just like a scrolling book. And I loved that that that was kind of my entrance into wanting to know more about how computers work and wanting to build these types of things. And so for my 14th birthday, I picked up a C programing for Dummies and I started learning Linux C and building these. They’re called Mudd’s old text base games. And yeah, that that’s been a passion. I still just all my free time, I constantly I, I have a vision of someday having a secret little mud game buried in the console of a website that I’m working on.  [00:07:49][72.6]

Rock Felder: [00:07:50] And you’re not just a software engineer, right? You have another engineering background. Is it mechanical, correct?  [00:07:55][4.8]

Anthony Pelot: [00:07:56] So, yeah, I actually worked as an auto mechanic for several years. I did not get a mechanical engineering degree, but yeah, it’s basically.  [00:08:02][6.5]

Rock Felder: [00:08:03] Excuse me.  [00:08:03][0.1]

Anthony Pelot: [00:08:03] Yeah. It’s the same kind of like working with your hands, which is a lot different from the software engineering. And on the mechanical side of things, it’s a kind of a big umbrella, not just automotive. I worked as an electrician for a couple of years as well and even spent one summer working as an asphalt loader at an asphalt plant and yeah, so getting dirty and getting down with my hands is kind of the other aspect of where I almost went.  [00:08:29][25.7]

Rock Felder: [00:08:30] What path was that? I imagine there was some fork in the road where you decided to go software engineering. But what do you think you would have done otherwise?  [00:08:37][7.0]

Anthony Pelot: [00:08:37] Yeah, coming out of high school, I was an auto mechanics kid. That’s what I studied in high school every year I was there. I was winning competitions and was lined up to go to school for it. And it just kind of it didn’t feel good. I loved working on my own cars, but I hated working on other people’s. It was a great hobby, but it just it, I didn’t like the job, so I kept exploring. I knew I liked computers at that time. I was gaming and doing that kind of stuff. And so I started actually exploring the audio engineering route, looked at going to school for that as well, and really kind of pushed that locally, didn’t ever do anything big. But I ended up doing a lot of audio production for local bands and even some big events. There was. And where I grew up in Idaho, the local tribe throws a huge powwow every year. And so we had tribes from all over the country coming in to do their powwow. And I had to do the audio setup for a big outdoor event like that. That was probably the crown like of my pro audio career. And after a couple of years of that, not really ever finding like an actual career path for myself, I found myself just kind of always helping people with computers, finding jobs related to computers, and that just kind of took over. And I finally decided by the time I turned twenty six that that was the thing I was going to do. I was going to go to school for it and I was just going to focus on that.  [00:09:57][79.7]

Rock Felder: [00:09:57] Oh right on. Yeah. I think I felt like when I was twenty six I started getting my ish together and figuring out the kind of person I wanted to be too.  [00:10:04][6.5]

Anthony Pelot: [00:10:04] Takes a little time sometimes.  [00:10:05][0.8]

Rock Felder: [00:10:06] Yeah. Took me some time too. And that’s what I tell my, my younger cousin. I was like don’t worry. I think it seems to be common in males, at least from my perspective, where it takes us a little bit longer to figure out what we want to do. But it sounds like you are like a super engineer, though, like hardware, software. No task is too small for you. Is that safe to say?  [00:10:24][18.3]

Anthony Pelot: [00:10:25] Yeah, I like to make the joke. I’m the true full stack engineer. You know, it doesn’t matter how high up or down you want to go on the stack, there’s something that I’m going to be able to do there. So, Jack, of all trades generalist, that’s that’s kind of how I’ve presented myself and really worked on myself. It’s hard for me to to narrow down into one thing. I’m ADD, like I’m always jumping into a new project and you just have to lean into it at some point and just be like, I’m going to be good at a lot of things and maybe not the best at one specific thing, but good at a lot of things.  [00:10:54][29.3]

Rock Felder: [00:10:56] Let’s take a short breather. We’ll be right back.  [00:10:58][2.3]

Arielle Nissenblatt: [00:11:02] Hello, SquadCaster, Arielle, your community manager here with a quick message. At the beginning of this episode, you heard a pre-roll ad from a SquadCast customer. They told you a bit about their podcast and then gave us a nice introduction into this week’s episode of Between Two Mics. If you record your podcast on SquadCast, you can submit one of these pre roll ads too. We want to show off your podcast. For details on submitting an ad for your show, head to SquadCast Dot FM Slash Share. That’s our new content submission page. In addition to voice clips, you can submit SquadShots, feature videos and more. Again, head to SquadCast dot FM slash share. Super easy URL to remember, it’s SquadCast dot FM slash what? Share. SquadCast dot fm slash share to submit your voice clips so that we can feature you on this podcast. OK, let’s get back to the show.  [00:11:56][53.8]

Rock Felder: [00:11:58] How about the type of content you watch or listen to? I imagine it’s probably eclectic and all over the place to just get it. Just from what I’m getting from you.  [00:12:06][8.1]

Anthony Pelot: [00:12:07] Lately I’ve been living on YouTube for most of my content. It changes every once in a while. You know, I’ve gone through a couple of phases of content and right now I am all about YouTube and Linus Tech tips videos and critical roll videos. That’s I mean, that’s probably 50 percent of my just kind of relaxing on the TV time right now. With podcasts, I actually have only recently started getting into podcasts. I’ve realized I’ve listened to things like podcasts for a very long time. But yeah, yeah, I started actually going out and finding podcasts, subscribing to podcasts and I found Behind the Bastards has been one of my favorite in that respect. Robert Evans is just a brilliant guy and it’s just great commentary kind of all over the place, still. Even try to dip my feet back into skating a little bit, bought a new pair of inline skates, watch some videos and got out. And hopefully I’m not going to break anything, but so far, so good.  [00:12:59][52.6]

Rock Felder: [00:13:00] So how’s it getting back on the board, though? It was it like riding a bike, so to speak?  [00:13:03][2.8]

Anthony Pelot: [00:13:03] Strap on those wheels to my feet with the skates and yeah, I’m jumping off of things. It’s great.  [00:13:07][4.1]

Rock Felder: [00:13:07] That’s right. So it was back, you’re back, like it’s not like you have to learn that skill set again, righht?.  [00:13:11][3.7]

Anthony Pelot: [00:13:11] There’s a couple of things I have not worked up the nerve to try yet. I was pretty ballsy when I was young. I would do tricks jumping over things and stuff that now I’m like, I’m I don’t want to hurt myself. I’m fine. Just kind of rolling down the road.  [00:13:23][11.8]

Rock Felder: [00:13:24] And you did some events on skates, right? Now that my memory’s coming back to me on some of these previous discussions we had. What were those again?  [00:13:31][6.7]

Anthony Pelot: [00:13:31] Yeah. So here in San Francisco, we have some awesome kind of events that happen. I mean, it’s big city, lots of cool stuff. And for the roller skaters in the rollerbladers out there, there’s a Friday night skate and it’s a tour of the entire North Beach area of the city. We started on the Embarcadero and go all down the river, the waterfront and then dip into the city, go through some cool hills. Everything is very approachable for any kind of skate level. And it’s just long. It’s about twelve miles all the way through the city. We do it in about three or four hours and the whole time we’re pushing along a stroller with a boombox speaker on it. Just blasting music, lights, everybody’s dancing, it’s a great time.  [00:14:13][41.8]

Rock Felder: [00:14:13] That sounds amazing. And it’s picking back up again now that things are starting to open up there, right? So have you gone to one since post 2020?.  [00:14:21][8.4]

Anthony Pelot: [00:14:22] I had to stop going to him when the pandemic started getting bad, so I haven’t picked that back up. That is definitely on the wish list though. That is such a good time.  [00:14:30][7.7]

Rock Felder: [00:14:30] It sounds amazing. So I look forward to hearing about that and. Yeah, no kidding. Jack, of all trades, you’re a skater, you’re a musician. True full stack engineer, which is actually what I want to get back on is highlighting the work that you’re doing here at SquadCast. So what does being a software engineer to you and what’s the work that you’ve been doing here at SquadCast so far?  [00:14:48][18.5]

Anthony Pelot: [00:14:49] For me, it’s building tools that support people. I mean, that’s the core of software engineering, is we’re looking for ways to solve those little problems that get in your way. And so if you’re trying to do something and be it creative or just productive stuff that needs to get done, then often you can automate those processes and introduce tools that just make the job happen faster, quicker and be fun. And so that’s what I focus on building here. I want to find what are our users are using and what they’re doing with it, and try to build tools that enable them to do more, do more of the things that they not only are wanting to do, but the fun part of working with creative people is that if you build them something like a tool and just give them access to using it, they’ll find new creative ways to use it that you didn’t even think up to begin with. Scary as a software engineer, when people start using things you in ways you weren’t thinking of and but the creativity feedback from that is just awesome. Just seeing that back and forth between what we build, how people use it, how we can improve on that.  [00:15:53][64.0]

Rock Felder: [00:15:53] And how’s it been working with creators like podcasters? Is that a newer customer base or user base, rather, for you?  [00:16:00][6.9]

Anthony Pelot: [00:16:01] Certainly. Yeah, most of the people I’ve worked with in the past have been very kind of suit and tie type of people, you know, I’ve worked a lot with lawyers, I’ve worked a lot with some government institutions. And working with creators is such a different vibe. It’s not just about getting the thing done and just completing whatever the task is. It’s really about opening doors. It’s about facilitating that creative process. And so, you know, there are things that may seem like a bug and it’s not working quite the right way, but people are using it in a way that just opens up your mind about new ways to introduce features and ways to help people produce better content.  [00:16:41][40.6]

Rock Felder: [00:16:42] Yeah, I mean, that’s totally what we’re trying to do here, a SquadCast. So I’m glad to hear you feel that way. And I think your insight, as you know, not just a talented software developer, but also having this audio experience, I imagine has got to help kind of get you to be kind of more empathetic than maybe most software engineers that are just coming at it from a tech perspective, how do you think that’s helped you out here?  [00:17:05][23.5]

Anthony Pelot: [00:17:06] Definitely helps put myself in that position of a user knowing the kind of struggles that you have to deal with and the kind of issues that are going to crop up when you’re trying to work with all of this equipment. And, you know, one example of this is just simply plugging things in and out of your computer, adding a new camera and moving a microphone. That’s the kind of thing that you want to just work. You know, if I plug in a new camera, I want it to work. And so those kind of fine grained features are what we focus on, making sure a really clean we don’t want you to have any kind of problems when you’re doing stuff that you should expect to work, just right out the gate.  [00:17:43][37.5]

Rock Felder: [00:17:44] I hear you. That’s like when we first got this started, one of the podcaster coaches, they basically just told Zach it just needs to work. And I was like, well, yes, we agree on that. But that’s like fundamentally that’s it. Just as long as it works, it’s reliable. You can reliably get that quality. That’s kind of that’s our job, right. Anthony, looking forward to the future. What are you most excited about with what we got coming up for SquadCast?  [00:18:06][22.3]

Anthony Pelot: [00:18:07] Yeah, so SquadCast. I mean, the next big update, like the one that we’re thinking about is so exciting. It adds so much to the product that I can’t imagine all the ways that it’s going to be used. So I’m super excited about that. Obviously, I can’t say too much about what we’re doing. But, you know, the collaboration that it’s going to enable is just going to just be through the roof. I’m really excited to see how that turns out over the next couple of months.  [00:18:34][27.8]

Rock Felder: [00:18:35] I think so, too. I think it’s going to be a game changer. And yeah, collaboration, I would say, is a good way to put it. Is there any other Scooby Snacks we can give to the folks without, you know, releasing too much?  [00:18:45][10.2]

Anthony Pelot: [00:18:45] I mean, it’s the big part of collaboration is you want to be able to work with other people and getting other people involved with your process. And so I guess that’s the biggest Scooby snack is, is how are we going to get more people involved with the process and still take the workload off of you? How do we, you know, make it easier to do what you need to do while doing it with other people?  [00:19:08][22.5]

Rock Felder: [00:19:08] Absolutely. I appreciate you dancing that fine line between, you know, trying to give folks what they want, but still, you know, keep some things close to the chest. So thank you for indulging me there. How about you personally? What are you most excited about for Anthony?  [00:19:21][12.5]

Anthony Pelot: [00:19:21] Oh, man. This new normal is is an exploration and that’s exciting coming out of a pandemic and finally being able to have a reality that’s a little more closer to my own. I’ve always been the kind of person that likes to stay and work from home. I feel like the world shifted and got a little closer to me. So that’s that’s the exciting thing for me, is kind of seeing how the world evolves with this and how we come out of this pandemic and reach this new normal and what what new ways we’re going to be working together. And there’s a lot of ways we’re leaning on tech for that, which means that there’s a lot of room for me to add my piece.  [00:19:58][36.8]

Rock Felder: [00:19:59] That’s funny you mention that, because when the whole shelter in place thing was happening and I’d already been working from home for about two years now and really liking it, like I, I mean, as weird as it is, sometimes the only time I would go outside was like to go shopping or to the gym or something like that, and that was pre pandemic. So I was already kind of in that groove. So I can relate to you in that way. And I remember when the shelter in place was happening and it was like starting to become more apparent that it was not going to be just like a two week or a month long thing. I remember thinking to myself, we’re going to figure out how many people are actually introverts, the way that they kind of like brag about it. Like it’s you know, it’s similar to like being a nerd is cool now or being an introvert is like more talked about now than ever. I felt like. And then I saw it on Twitter of these people, like, I need to see people, I need to do this. And it’s like, oh, these are, everyone’s learning how introverted they are or not. And for me, yeah, it wasn’t too big of a swing for better or for worse. So I could totally relate that it was kind of, I was fine but I was actually kind of surprised how fine I was, if that makes any sense, but did you know going into it like, oh, I’m good, like this is my jam?  [00:21:06][67.0]

Anthony Pelot: [00:21:06] I thought I would handle it one hundred percent, like, no problems. And I found my bottom. I found that there is a limit to my introversion and I got to get out a little bit every once in a while. So it’s kind of nice realizing that I feel like I now know my limits and I don’t need to test them anymore. So yeah, I’m excited for everything to open back up. Being able to hang out a couple of times we’ve got to get together here in the city have been awesome and excited for more of that now. [00:21:30][24.2]

Rock Felder: [00:21:31] Oh yes. Definitely more of that. I’m looking forward to that too. And yeah, all the things like opening back up, you know, skate skating, opening back up, you know, just like it’s been great. Are you thinking of picking up any other skills or talents or hobbies? I mean, it doesn’t sound like you kind of stay put on one single thing.  [00:21:48][17.3]

Anthony Pelot: [00:21:49] Yeah. I mean, I’ve got a wish list of things that is probably a mile long. One of the things I studied in school were FPGAs, kind of like microcontrollers, little processing chips that work differently than regular computers and could do some cool things. And they make a little development boards. Jean, one of our other engineers also really into them. So thought about picking up a little electronics type project, do something like that. But the thing that itches me a little bit more than that is probably trying to join a band again, that kind of hitting the bottom and finding that need to connect and be a social person. And I miss having a band. I miss playing music with people. So, you know, going home every once in a while to do it is great. But having somebody that I can play with around here would just probably be the next big thing I’m looking for.  [00:22:38][49.7]

Rock Felder: [00:22:39] Yeah, that’d be awesome. How does one do that? Do you go on, meet up dot com looking for band mates or like how does that happen?  [00:22:44][5.2]

Anthony Pelot: [00:22:44] I mean, yeah, all of the above. The way it’s always happened for me is you go into shows and that’s something that I’m excited to start picking up again is the live music and shows. And San Francisco is a phenomenal place to be for that. Oakland has some amazing shows over there as well. So I’m going to be spoiled for options as soon as everything opens back up. And hopefully that helps facilitate it. But in the meantime, obviously, Discord groups, Craig’s List, anything where you can just kind of be like, hey, anybody else interested in doing this thing?  [00:23:14][30.2]

Rock Felder: [00:23:15] Is there a particular genre that you want to focus on? Because that’s eclectic in its own right? Right.  [00:23:20][5.2]

Anthony Pelot: [00:23:20] Sure, yeah. I tend to play a little bit all over. I branch a lot between punk and folk music. So something that kind of lives in between there. I don’t know if you’ve ever heard the band Flogging Molly, but it’s really perfect kind of mash up of all those different aspects. Huge band. They got a mandolin player, a violinist, Irish folk. But it’s fast. It’s punk. You jump into the mosh pit when they’re playing. So something along that lines, other bands that I’m kind of really interested in. Blink 182 is an old favorite of mine, that pop punk kind of energetic feel, anti flag, some of the more kind of aggressive political bands. Yeah, anything around that line is probably what I’d be aiming for. But I’ve I’ve played in top twenty type bands, bluegrass bands. I’m I have fun with everything. I hope maybe I’ll find a metal band that would be that would be pretty fun.  [00:24:14][53.6]

Rock Felder: [00:24:15] Well, just let us know when you start performing again because we want to we’d love to see you and go support ya. We don’t have to just meet up for podcaster events. You know?  [00:24:21][6.6]

Anthony Pelot: [00:24:22] We should do a remote band and figure out how to record it all on SquadCast and release our band product that way. It would be great.  [00:24:28][6.3]

Rock Felder: [00:24:28] So, yeah. So speaking of unintended use cases that we predicted that the people would use SquadCast for, we did think that even though it’s not necessarily set up for that now would be like folks collaborating on creating music remotely. And I think, you know, we’d probably want to make some improvements to the product to facilitate that workflow a little bit better. I’m sure you have some ideas about that. But, yeah, that was definitely something we saw those unintended or unexpected, I should say, use cases or something that has definitely been fascinating for us to to see as well.  [00:24:58][30.0]

Anthony Pelot: [00:24:58] Yeah, there’s some there’s some not too hard things we could do, I think that might make all of that work a little better. And that’s those are the kind of things I love doing, just little tools that allow people to do something new and fun.  [00:25:10][11.1]

Rock Felder: [00:25:10] Well, that’s what’s amazing to me about software engineers, man, is like the you know, I know that it’s not magic, but it feels like you are able to create magic and you move so fast and come up with these amazing ideas that impact the lives of, you know, tens of thousands of customers that we have right now recording on SquadCast. So, yeah, I really appreciate it. And it’s been great to get you here on the show. Learn a bit a little bit more about you and the work that you’re doing in SquadCast. Yeah, I look forward to hearing about the skating events, the band getting back together and all the all the things going on with ya, Anthony, thanks for your time today.  [00:25:43][33.1]
