Listening Party Volume #6 – Kal Penn on the Nerdist Podcast

The Nerdist Podcast

For the last year or so, I’ve had the Nerdist Podcast in my player. They do 2-3 podcasts a week with comedians, entertainers and cool Bills like Bill Nye and Bill Gates. If I know the person they’re talking to, I’ll listen to the show.

This week, Kal Penn (of Harold and Kumar and House M.D. fame) was on the show. He’s an incredible guy and he left House in its heyday to go work for the Obama campaign. They talk about a lot of cool stuff and I found the whole thing very interesting, including a conversation about old-school, racist aspects of Hollywood that genuinely shocked me. You should listen!

The episode in question is currently the 3rd newest, from March 27th: Kal Penn on the Nerdist Podcast.

3 Things That Happened This Week (& Social News)

Since Future Chat is still on haitus until April, we only had one show last week, but it was a really great episode of Ottawhat with Waubgeshig Rice from CBC Ottawa! This week proper, I chatted with Nick about my experiences on Universal Time (aka GMT) and how living 4 hours in the future is making my life better in some pretty interesting ways, and confuses everyone around me. We also sat down with Jantine Van Kregten from Ottawa Tourism on Ottawhat to learn how our city encourages people to visit, and helps them out once they’re here. Interesting stuff and a great interview!

We also underwent a nice set of changes at unwindmedia.com, it’s a lot easier to follow and subscribe to shows as they have their own landing pages with show info now. We also added a couple of Twitter accounts and Facebook pages for East Meets West (@_emwFM/East Meets West) and Feedback (@_FeedbackFM/Feedback) this week (we also moved Future Chat’s Twitter account to @_FutureChatFM), you can follow or like those to keep up with news for those shows specifically.

This week on Unwind Media, we bring Season 1 of Future Chat to a close. The show will start back up with Season 2 in April, see you then! Thanks for listening and look forward to some big news stuff in the coming months!

I don’t think posting EVERY thing I do on this blog and on its own site, so I’m going to give the “synopsis” type post a shot for a while. Let me know if you think this is a good idea, or if you think it’s a mistake. I’m all for the feedback!
