Fireside 2.1 ( Hemispheric Views Blog Wed, 10 Feb 2021 18:15:00 -0800 Hemispheric Views Blog en-us Chris's Desk Wed, 10 Feb 2021 18:15:00 -0800 2035f592-2557-4985-8285-e13bbbd50721 At Hemispheric Views, we take desk set-ups kind of seriously. Any well-respecting computer user knows that a functioning desk arrangement is key to self-worth. This was so important to us that we created some HVmini episodes to quiz one another on our own desk setups, which you can listen to here:

We are so dedicated to desk set-ups that we invited listeners to send in photos of their desks for us to critique. We created focused podcast episodes on each of those:

We've received another submission through our Discord listener forum—open to anybody who listens to the show and wants to open a line of communication with us and other listeners. This time, we thought that we'd make good use of our new blog!

That submission was from Chris. Apparently, he is a fan of the 🐼 colour scheme, as you can see below in his striking photos:



Chris also went so far as to provide details about the key elements of the photo, as follows:

  • Wrist Rest;
  • Folding Headphone Mount; and
  • The water bottle is essential for making sure he drinks enough water during the work day, and the flexible straw is a bonus.

Of course, we have our thoughts and comments about Chris’ desk.

I love the colour coordination here! The black-and-white scheme is very nice indeed. I think what impresses me the most is that even with a collection of products from different companies, Chris has managed to create a sense of consistency and harmony upon his desk. When it comes to audio devices in particular, the presence of a HomePod is most pleasing (as most people would use that either in a lounge room or kitchen) and the microphone and boom arm look pretty cool together. Does the rest of Chris’s house look this professional? Top marks!

Wow, Chris has a full-size running track in his backyard!

That's clearly a cardboard PS5, because we all know they don't really exist in the world.

As a fellow Streamdecker, I respect his privacy in showing the logo only, but I really want to know... what's on his buttons?

— Andrew

Absolutely pristine and serene! Super jealous that he was able to snag a PS5!

Using the best cup! Hydroflask can’t be beat!

— Jason

An overall kick-ass setup that looks super comfortable with colo(u)r co-ordination that is out of this world!

Don't eat a giant plate of spaghetti at this desk! 🍝 😱

A New Blog in 2021?! Wed, 10 Feb 2021 18:00:00 -0800 b533c823-1080-4747-be80-82f738c3e180 Yep, that’s right! Here at Hemispheric Views, we’ve launched a blog when it’s most fashionable.

Expanding our little corner of the Web—a little podcast universe, if you will—we’ll be adding extra content here that goes beyond the show, including other interesting stories, behind-the-scenes stuff and special announcements.

To kick things off, we’re excited to announce our very own sticker store! If you’re into sticking things onto other things, you’ll find our podcast artwork there (with adhesive!) to tickle your fancy. Other designs are coming soon, so keep an eye out!

Thanks so much for listening to the show and even for reading this blog post. You can get in touch and leave feedback @HemisphericV on Twitter, @HemisphericViews on, join our public Discord chat or even (if you’re feeling super-generous) leave a review somewhere like Apple Podcasts.

We’ve had a really fun time making Hemispheric Views since starting in 2020 and we’re looking forward to delivering even more!
