Media Nerds Podcast

Kenton and Dan. Dan and Kenton. Two peas in a movie/TV/Internet/video game/iPhone/social media-filled pod, or rather – podCAST. Every week the conversation ranges from Star Wars to Breaking Bad, Google AdWords to Instagram vs. Vine. No media will be left untouched, they consume it all. Take a listen and join the discussion.
