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.
Busy, busy week. Tons of awesome media to consume! In the Nerd News, Dan & Kenton talk Star Wars going digital as well as The Simpsons going exclusively digital. Winnipeg was in the news for a bunch of reasons: the BBC’s Red River Women, Louis C.K. and (of course) the Winnipeg Jets making the playoffs. The Nerds also discuss the return of Mad Men and the Better Call Saul season finale.
Kenton & Dan take umbrage with the recent Maclean’s article, Welcome to Winnipeg: Where Canada’s racism problem is at its worst. They also discuss #deflategate and recommend a good ol’ fashioned NBC Thursday comedy as well as the Starbucks app of the week.
It’s funny where a conversation can take you. This week, Kenton and Dan fully intended to talk about the ongoing issue of Net Neutrality, and how it will affect the future media landscape.
But….they didn’t get to it.
Instead, there’s an interesting discussion about radio and television ratings, a wrap up for the first half of Mad Men season 7, Levar Burton’s Kickstarter campaign, and Dan wises Kenton up to one of the greatest WWII movies of all time.
