The new version of the TV, eh? podcast – the live Internet radio version – airs Sunday at 11 am Pacific/2 pm Eastern. If you can’t listen live, tune in later for the archive. (Note: The player embedded in the right sidebar on this blog will still play last week’s show on Robson Arms/TV on the web/Bill C-10 until this week’s show is complete and archived.)
This Sunday, April 27, the guest lineup will be:
At the top of the show: X-Weighted contestant Gaia joins us to talk about her experience on the Slice network’s weight-loss reality show.
Around 15 minutes past the hour: Christopher Bolton, creator and star of Showcase’s Rent-a-Goalie, will talk about the upcoming season and the season one DVD release in conversation with Denis McGrath.
Around 45 minutes past the hour: Accessibility advocate Joe Clark joins us to chat about his recently launched website, CaptioningSUCKS.com, which takes aim at crappy closed captioning.
Call in to join the conversation at 646-200-4063, or leave a question for our guests in the comments and I may ask it on the show.
Don’t forget: tomorrow (April 20) at 11 am Pacific/2 pm Eastern is the first live version of the TV, eh? Internet radio show. Listen live and call in at 646-200-4063 to discuss what you’re watching or join the conversation with our guests and give your opinion:
Robson Arms co-creators Susin Neilsen and Gary Harvey (about 10 minutes in)
Technogeek Steve Wild on tv on the web (about 35 minutes in)
Screenwriter/journalist Mark Leiren-Young will report on Bill C-10 (see his The Tyee article on appearing before the Senate about the controversial legislation) (about 50 minutes in)
If you can’t be there Sunday, you can still listen to the show later [Post-show update: Listen in the player below – there’s a few seconds of dead air at the beginning, but what would a first show be without technical difficulties?].
We’ve got great guests lined up in the next few weeks, too – keep checking out the upcoming show schedule for all the details.
For the first show we’ve got some great guests lined up. Robson Arms returns to CTV’s regular schedule on April 28, and co-creators Susin Nielsen and Gary Harvey will talk about the show’s third season. Have a question for them? Call in live, or leave it in the comments and I might ask it for you.
My brother the technogeek, Steve Wild, will talk about what wacky television shows he watches and how he watches them: he’ll discuss TV on the web; how networks are missing the boat and how they’re succeeding. Let us know what you think.
And screenwriter/journalist Mark Leiren-Young was at the Senate committee hearings on Bill C-10 so he’ll be on the line to report on that controversy. Call in with your opinion: censorship or prudent oversight of taxpayer money?
Tomorrow (Wednesday, April 9) at 4 pm Pacific time I’ll be on TV Talk, an Internet radio show, to talk Canadian TV and the relaunch of the TV, eh? podcast as a monthly radio show on Blogtalkradio. Feel free to call in (1-646-915-9925) to chat with Shaun and me.
Stay tuned for more information on the first TV, eh? Internet radio show, but for now mark your calendars: it’ll air live on Sunday, April 20 at 2 pm EDT, then be available as a podcast afterwards.
Seriously folks… (part one)
ME’s Judith Klassen chats with comedy writers Chris Finn (The Mercer Report, Mad TV) and Edward Kay (This Hour Has 22 Minutes, Jimmy Two Shoes) about the good old days of 22 Minutes: Talking to Americans, Corner Gas, the WGA strike and why the CBC building in Toronto feels like a hospital set.
