The specacular Jackie Talbott from Revision3 (twitter: jackietalbott) joins us in the studio today to chat about how girls like robots, but not nerds. We also recommend some other fine podcasts, talk about some of the new TV shows worth streaming, and discuss discovering new music with Songza's curated music lists. We also brielfy chat about Wreck-it Ralph, which is a pretty good movie.
Links from this week's episode:
- There are new TV shows! Try out the pilot of 1313 Mockingbird Lane, a reboot of the Munsters. You can catch it on Hulu. I know, the Munsters...but it's from Brian Fuller and Eddie Izzard is awesome as Grandpa. The CBS modern Sherlock Holmes show Elementary is quite good, too.
- Nate still doesn't like Avatar: the Last Airbender. We don't get it. He's just...wrong. That show is awesome.
