So this will make for an interesting episode this week: Adam will not be able to make it, as they are celebrating his dad’s birthday that night (Happy Birthday, Mr. E!), so it’ll be me and THREE GUESTS tonight! I just received word from Frank that he will be here tonight, so that’s exciting, but I have another spot to fill.
Along side Dave (@davewheeler, who made appearances in the first Episode, as well as served as an audience member in the second), and Frank (#stilldoesnthavetwitter), I have sent out invites to AJ (Episode 1), Gina (Episode 2), Katie and Walstead in limerick form, in hopes that one of the four will join us as a third guest for this week.
One thing I will work on is getting AJ and Gina on site simultaneously, as they have blown everyone else out of the water in the Leonard Maltin Game, and I want to see who’d win in that fight … plus Adam.
I’ll update everyone once I know who’ll be the third joining me tonight!
My Limerick Invite:
Adam is unable to co-host tonight,
I’m looking for a third guest, alright?
We tape around 8,
and don’t run too late.
Can someone please come solve my plight?
We’re going to make a valiant effort to always tape bonus tracks with every episode, and so far, we’re one-for-one! We’ve just uploaded the hilarious Mic Check and pre-show session, as well as a bonus Leonard Maltin game!
Thank you for being oh so patient with us as Adam and I worked to get this thing off the ground. We had an awesome first episode with our guests, Dave Wheeler and Alex “AJ” Johnson, as we discussed Pandora’s struggle to remain unique as Spotify and Clear Channel Communications release their own ‘Create Your Own Station’ features, as well as the debacle between Netflix and Starz. We also had enough time to play the Leonard Maltin game (made famous on Doug Benson’s “Doug Loves Movies” podcast).
On top of the episode itself, we will also have some extras for you to check out this weekend (including the mic checks and a bonus round of the Leonard Maltin game)!
As promised, here are a few links to everything we discussed this week:
Holy buckets, folks!
We’ve subbed out Frank for this first episode, and we’re bringing in AJ as his successor.
But even before we have recorded our first episode (recording tonight, dropping Friday), we’ve already booked a guest for next week! This is really cool that our friends are so supportive to get this thing off the ground, and now we’re building an awesome talent pool from which to draw guests when we want to have the fun shows with experienced folks.
Here’s what to watch for:
Episode #1 (taping tonight!) – Dave Wheeler & Alex “AJ” Johnson
Episode #2 – Gina Dolski & TBD
If you’re in the Twin Cities area, a fan of all that is Internet Media, and a fantastic riffer and conversationalist, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and maybe YOU COULD BE OUR NEXT GUEST!
Adam and I have our first guest list locked down! This is pretty exciting (as I’m sitting in the Frank Oz Memorial studio as I write this update)!
Our guests tomorrow will be Dave Wheeler (@davewheeler) and Steve “Frank” Frankenfield (#frankdoesnthavetwitter) talking to myself and Adam.
I’m trying not to give too much away before you actually get to hear the show, but make sure to listen all the way through, as I think we’re going to try to break out the Leonard Maltin game.
