The Media Nerds began this week excited about Stephen Colbert’s return to television, but was the excitement warranted? And finally, Apple delivers the set-top box Kenton & Dan have been talking about for years.
Dan & Kenton completely forget (while recording) that this is the one hundredth episode of this podcast! Holy shit! They do remember to talk about the Deadpool trailer, the failure of Fantastic Four, and (of course) Jon Stewart’s final episode of the Daily Show.
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.
Kenton & Dan meet up with Colbert uber fan Sharilyn Johnson once again to talk about her new book, Bears & Balls: The Colbert Report A-Z. The Nerds mourn the death of the Report over a few pints at the Kings Head Pub while Sharilyn recounts tales from her seeing 13 tapings of the show and meeting Stephen Colbert on several occasions. Stay tuned for special “bonus content” at the end!
This week, Kenton & Dan welcome Fake News Fangirl Sharilyn Johnson to the podcast for a great conversation about comedy, social media and her 15-year-long obsession with Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert. Sharilyn is in town for the Winnipeg Fringe Festival. You can see her show almost every day of the Fringe at the Prairie Theatre Exchange in Portage Place.
