    August 29, 2017 – I was there the day they stopped whispering. It was the day episode 140 was recorded at a podcast booth on the VMworld show floor. In my mind, this had all the makings of a great athlete retiring and would bring about the end of an era. I was fortunate enough to be a part of it.

    Getting into Podcasts

    The real story begins much earlier in the year. I needed to renew my VCP-DCV 5 before September and had been ramping up to start studying again. But I was also working a job with an hour commute each direction and needed to find a way to create more study time. I started listening to the vBrownBag series of podcasts on the VCP-DCV 6 as I drove to and from work. I would also listen or watch from my desk during part of lunch, before work, or after work.

    As I searched for the vBrownBag series in iTunes, I began to see recommendations for other podcasts. One of them was called The Geek Whisperers, and I decided to give it a listen. I don’t remember the first episode I chose, but I feel like it might have been Episode 131 or somewhere close to it. Much like Lay’s potato chips, I couldn’t stop at just one. After listening to the newer episodes, I decided to start from the beginning.
