Dan & Kenton gear up for the new TV season by running down their fave and not-so-fave new & returning shows. Then, the Nerds make their Emmy picks. Spoiler alert: Kenton predicts a disastrous hosting job by Andy Samberg
As talk radio legend Charles Adler gets ready to leave the Winnipeg airwaves for good, Dan & Kenton re-visit their discussion about what the future of the radio industry should look and sound like. Also, Kenton finally gives up on True Detective while Dan goes clear on Scientology.
Dan and Kenton travel to Barley Brothers to sample some awesome stouts, have a sausage party, and pregame for the One Direction concert (just kidding!) They also discuss Emmy noms, OITNB, Ernest Cline’s new novel and why Philadelphians don’t know what Star Wars is.
Dan & Kenton review their summer media wish lists, going over all the movies, TV shows, music and books that they plan to consume over the next few months. Also, Kenton rants against the Winnipeg Parking Authority and Dan reminisces about the Barenaked Ladies.
Dan pitches his idea for the “CJOB Podcast Network” while Kenton pitches what would be the first “R-rated” Star Wars film. The Nerds also get into Star Wars toy collections, OITNB, and mourn the loss of Sir Christopher Lee.
It’s that time of year again, time to shell out $10K for a magic watch! Just kidding, it’s actually IPP presentation time! CreComm students are showing off their Independent Professional Projects, and Kenton & Dan are all presented out. But it’s a good time to reflect on how well the Nerds are doing on their own ongoing IPP, this podcast. Plus, awesome Star Wars news, more cable company fuckery, and what they really think of the Apple Watch.
Famed Couch Potato Brett Megarry joins Kenton and Dan for the final show of the year to talk about his favorite movies and TV shows. Brett co-hosts the All News Drive on Winnipeg’s 680 CJOB and is one half of the illustrious Couch Potatoes, a weekly radio talk show that features news and reviews off all the top media properties. The consensus: it was a great year for entertainment, but 2015 is going to be even better! (ageofultronstarwarsageofultronstarwars…)
The trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron leaked this week, and Dan & Kenton react with appropriate *Squee*. Plus: hoverboards, Google takes over the world, and somehow it all comes back around to Star Wars.
And in case you somehow missed said trailer, enjoy!
