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. Tweet @kentonlarsen to let him know what you think (criticism only, please!) while @danvadeboncoeur is happy to accept all praise.

Finally! After months of waiting and speculation, Lucasfilm has dropped the 1st teaser for Rogue One: A Star Wars story. Dan & Kenton watch the trailer and react to all it's gloriousness...

Apr 2, 2016

Kenton & Dan sit down for a round of Surplus of Popes with creators William and Bart. SOP is a comedic, improvisational card game in which popes sit around a table and brag about their careers. The game is currently being crowdfunded at indiegogo.com, head on over there to pledge your support!

If you want to check out the game for yourself, the Popes are having a mid-campaign party at After Dark in Osborne Village on April 7th. It's gonna be Pope-tastic!

Apr 1, 2016

The Nerds review the Rebels season finale, Dan confesses to some *slight* illegal activity (what a scoundrel!) and Kenton remains on the hunt for Constable Zuvio. Just kidding on that last.

Mar 26, 2016

Dan & Kenton break down this week's Apple Keynote, but not before delving into the case of the college weiner thief!

Mar 19, 2016

Dan's kids return to the Nerds' studio to exact their revenge and drink more chocolate milk. In there somewhere, Kenton & Dan talk about the aliens in formal wear, the top 3 Han Solo contenders, and whether they can get a private pre-screening of The Force Awakens before the Blu-ray release date. 

Mar 18, 2016

Instagram and Twitter have gone algorithmic, Periscope and Meerkat are dead, Vine is long gone. Facebook's still in the lead, but Snapchat is moving up fast! It's another State of Social Media discussion on the Media Nerds!

Techcrunch article on Instagram's aggressive ad policy: http://techcrunch.com/2016/03/15/filteredgram/

Bloomberg Business Weekly breaks down DJ Khaled & his Snapchat success: http://www.bloomberg.com/features/2016-how-snapchat-built-a-business/

Mar 12, 2016

Dan & Kenton talk about JJ's big mistake in The Force Awakens, go of on a decent-sized tangent about the new Civil War trailer (hey, it's all Disney folks!) and finish off with Weird Al's contributions to the Star Wars universe.

Mar 8, 2016

Dan kinda takes over this one, rambling (incoherently at times!) about his greatest nemesis - Big Cable! He tells Kenton why cable companies should embrace the new Skinny TV laws rather than trying to sweep them under the rug. 

Feb 29, 2016

Dan & Kenton nurse their post-Oscar hangovers by praising the host, tearing apart the Best Picture Winner, and having no opinion whatsoever on the music. Just kidding, the music sucked. 

Feb 27, 2016

It was a bit of a slow week for Star Wars news, so the Nerds delve into their favorite characters from the franchise. If you were to only buy three Star Wars action figures, which ones would you buy?

Feb 23, 2016

Kenton & Dan talk about the current state of television, and why cable companies and broadcasters seem to have such a hard time adapting to the online world. Plus: selfie sticks and what's the deal with Easter?

Feb 20, 2016

Lots of Star Wars news this week! Someone restored an original 1977 print of the film, but it's not as big a deal as they think. Peter Mayhew is about to announce something big. Fans continue to debate the identity of Snoke and the filming of episode 8 is officially underway!

Feb 17, 2016

Dan vents about the frustrating mid-season premiere of The Walking Dead, gushes over the season premiere of Better Call Saul and is fairly neutral about Vinyl. Kenton's just glad he jumped the Walking Dead ship when he did.

Feb 13, 2016

Kenton & Dan discuss the upcoming St. Valentine's Horror Con, topography puns on Pablo's Twitter feed, and the mystery of Boshek.

Feb 9, 2016

Kenton & Dan run down this year's crop of "Big Game" advertisements from the brands that paid millions of dollars to produce very "safe" commercials during the Superbowl.
