We are well chuffed, as the Brits say, to have Paul and Storm of Paul and Storm join us to give their short term predictions which involve the ability to store your memories on thumb drives and the final arrival of those video phones we all want.
Did a guest spot with Mike Giannas and Reece Wissler of the UZER (the ultimate zone for everything relevant) podcast. It was good fun and an interesting conversation. Even better Joe Hewitt the developer from Facebook who quit iPhone app development is the other guest and he’s definitely worth listening to. Listen in!
had the distinct pleasure of worming my way onto The Movielicious, a fantastic movie review podcast done by a Frenchman (Patrick Beja), a Brit (Turpster), and an American (Nicole Spagnuolo). Also guesting on this episode is Scott Johnson of FrogPants Studios. My place was to talk about 2012 and defend the hilarious genre of disaster porn. But a member of the panel surprised me by joining my side!
Tom and Roger have differing opinions about why the country seems so divided over politics. They also have differing opinions about the Prisoner remake. Which is more important? You decide!

We’re doing things a little differently this time. We had so much good conversation this time around, that we’re pbreaking the show into three parts. Part one of the prediction extravaganza with Scott Kurtz and Jeff Cannata sees us discuss the end of journalism as we know it and ponder a world with one game console platform. Listen in!
