Dispatches from the Front

Hey guys, loyal patron here. I wanted to let you know that if you don’t already listen to or watch star talk radio with Neil deGrasse Tyson, his last episode was really great. It’s titled  A cosmos conversation with Steven Soter. He is one of the original writers of the original cosmos and they cover a lot of things that you talk about such as the animation. I have not yet listened to the most recent It’s spoilering time so please forgive me if somehow you covered this already.
I love the show keep up the good work. And I love seeing my name in the credits.




Actually, most of the advertising on Detroit tv does take into account canadians. Many canadians cross the border to do their shopping, as food and other products are cheaper here than in Ontario. I live on the border in a small town, and a good portion of groceries are sold to people who do not live in the us. Many retailers here benefit, such as clothiers, grocery, and other businesses that are not restricted in some way due to duty fees when those products are taken through customs. So the advertisers on local Detroit stations are fully aware and are sold on advertising with people in Ontario. 




An Aero opinion,I’m conflicted about the case. I want to root for them, yet since I have a windows media center setup with my own antenna I fear the over the air business model dying. I cut the cord years ago, but I fear the Aero fight might unintentionally push me back to comcast if the broadcasters pull their shows off the air.




Hi Tom and Brian, Given how you keep us up to date with What We’re Watching, it would be neat should you guys use a service like so your fans can easily track what you are watching and, more importantly, how you rated the material.

Love the show, etc, etc.




Hey Tom Merritt and Brian Brushwood, don’t throw those first-gen AppleTVs away… They are worth a lot of money! I jailbroke mine and sold it on eBay for over $190 just two months ago! I used that money to buy two refurbished AppleTV 3’s.
