This week on Mosen At Large, using your smartphone's camera, blindness and mental health, second-rate audio for described content and more

Kia ora koutou. It will soon be Mosen At Large time before you know it, and I’m looking forward as always to us getting together to discuss a range of topics. Your contributions really make the show. Here are some of the things we’ll be discussing this week in case you’d like to get a contribution in ahead of time, which helps me plan the show.

On Mosen At Large this week, what's your favourite Bluetooth keyboard, would you buy an iPhone without a charger in the box, and is it OK when people use the word "blind" to mean "ignorant or stupid"?

Kia ora koutou after a very cold and blustery Wellington week. I’m looking forward to being back with you for another edition of Mosen At Large this week. We already have plenty of listener contributions lined up but there is room for yours.

Here are just some of the things we’ll be talking about.

An important note for those still using Internet Explorer and the Mushroom FM Online Player

On Sunday 5 July, Mushroom FM will be performing an upgrade to our online player. This is the player that lets you listen to the fun guys from our website.

Once we perform that upgrade, our online player will no longer support Internet Explorer. Every other method of listening to Mushroom FM, including with a modern browser, will be unaffected.

Coming up on Mosen At Large, plenty more about Apple's forthcoming releases, AI to make social media more accessible, facial vision and echo location

Kia ora koutou Mosen At Largers from a wintery Wellington New Zealand.

Thank you so much for all your positive comments about recent episodes, particularly the Samsung TU8500 review and our post-WWDC recap. The latter was recorded the moment the keynote concluded and I have unearthed a lot more information since then.

A special edition of The Mosen Explosion in loving memory of Dame Vera Lynn

Dame Vera Lynn has died aged 103. That is certainly a life well lived, and yet like many others her death has deeply saddened me.

Dame Vera was a part of the soundtrack of my childhood. My parents were fans, so I grew up listening to her music. I loved it then, and I love it now. Her pure voice, perfect diction, and plaintive songs of hope still move me. She has been a part of the soundtrack of my adulthood too, in particular, "We'll Meet Again" was played at the end of my dad's funeral service.

On Mosen At Large this week, a thorough review and demonstration of the most accessible TV I've ever come across

Kia ora koutou Mosen At Largers. As always I’ve been enjoying your contributions coming in ahead of this weekend’s show and am looking forward to putting the show together.

What are your wishes for iOS 14? This and more on this weekend's Mosen At Large.

Mosen At Large on Mushroom FM is a three hour magazine show focussing on talk that’s entertaining, informative, usually friendly, sometimes controversial but always interesting.

The Mosen Explosion is fun! Now it’s here with all the classic features every weekday starting 8 June

It’s back in its original music-dominated form, but bigger than before with a massive five hours every week!

You can now hear The Mosen Explosion every weekday at 2 AM Eastern, repeated again at 2 PM Eastern. Do all these complicated time zones break your brain? We’ve got you covered. Visit the schedule page on Mushroom FM’s website and you can find out when that is in your time zone.

Here's what's coming up on Mosen At Large, live on Mushroom FM at 2 PM Eastern on Saturday

It’s the beginning of a new era this weekend as we bring you Mosen At Large live on Mushroom FM from 2 until 5 PM Eastern on Saturday, that’s 7 to 10 PM in the UK, and bright and early on Sunday morning from 6 until 9 AM in New Zealand.

My future on Mushroom FM, live coverage of the SpaceX launch and much more on The Mosen Explosion

Another week has rapidly rolled around and it’s nearly time for another Mosen Explosion on Mushroom FM.

This week, I’ll be making an announcement about my future on Mushroom FM. No, I’m not going anywhere, but things are going to be a bit different shortly. I’ll explain what and why.
