Up Periscope!


Kenton & Dan raise their periscopes and stream the podcast live from the popular video streaming app. They celebrate the return of the Muppets, mourn the loss of Joss Whedon’s Twitter account, and (for some reason) disparage the quality of British food.


Slurping Chocolate Milk!


No, that’s not a double-entendre. That’s the episode title suggested by Dan’s son Jack (the meaning will become clear a few minutes in.)

That’s right, it’s “bring your kid to the podcast” day! Jack joins the nerds for a somewhat chaotic discussion of Star Wars, Interstellar, and other sci-fi favourites.

State of Social Media (Spring 2015 Edition)

Dan & Kenton discuss the current state of social media, jumping off a recent keynote by NYU Marketing Professor Scott Galloway about the “Four Horsemen” of tech: Amazon, Facebook, Google and Apple. Watch it below for context, fascinating stuff.

As well, here are some stills from the video: social media stats that may surprise you.

What’s that you say? The kids aren’t using Facebook? Wrong.

Facebook adominates mobile apps across all age groups.

Instagram user base is up 23%, and apparently MySpace still had some users left to lose.


Best & Worst of 2014!


Edge of Tomorrow – best movie of 2014?


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…)

Live at Carbone, it’s the Media Nerds!

This week, the Media Nerds venture out from their dank, dark studio to record the podcast somewhere different! Kenton & Dan travel to Carbone Coal Fired Pizza in downtown Winnipeg to drink beer, eat some awesome pizza and wings, and of course discuss the media news. Topics covered this week include: the World Cup, the new Amazon phone, the epic Game of Thrones finale, and whether Dan can set up a microphone properly (spoiler alert – he can’t.)
