Back in the '90s, Kanye West worked with today's guest, writer/comedian/former rap prodigy Jensen Karp, and ended up owing him $300. We ask how that happened, and about more wild stories in Jensen Karp's new book on this week's long show!

Loved our interview with comedian Blake Wexler today. He's a funny, funny guy, and he has a new comedy album out! Get a taste of his talents on today's show, and stick around for our excellent VR conversation (Oculus vs. Vive)!
We discuss our favorite news stories of the week, and welcome Blake Wexler to explain how living with cats almost derailed his debut comedy album.

I'm not sure if you've seen Runcible, but that round screen is pretty interesting! Might be a bit too pricey for my taste though~

Haha, this is so awesome - the Steelers are using remote-controlled ROBOTS in practices.

The first step to the NRFL (National Robot Football League), which I will totally watch.

Tech Pundit: Like a mad scientist, but without all that "science-y" stuff
Introduction
"The important thing is this: to be able, at any moment, to sacrifice what we are for what we could become." - Maharishi Mahesh Yogi 

I've seen some really excellent uses of this section, and now I feel like I should probably write stuff in it. 

I've been referred to as:
  • The Honey Badger of Tech
  • Black Magic Internet Witch
  • Tall
Currently, I do this thing for a living:
I've also worked for companies such as TechnoBuffalo, Escapist, Mobile Nations, and more -- I've been around the web a few times!

I love to interact with my fans and viewers (I've learned those are not necessarily the same thing), and I have little patience for rudeness and/or intolerance. 

Since the removal of the "Incoming" stream, I'd love to know about you via a tagged post. Introduce yourself and let me know what your deal is! Full disclosure: It takes a long time to get a tag from me, since I interact with so many people. Also, I'm lazy. 

Oh, and I am NOT a journalist. Journalists are way too talented to lump my sorry self in with them. Call me a producer, call me a host, call me a pundit, call me a comedian, call me crazy... but a hard-hitting "news journalist," I am not. 

WARNING: I am feisty, silly, and generally easy to get along with. But if you attempt to troll me or my followers with mean spirited, hateful comments, I will block you. Don't be an asshole. If you have criticism, be constructive about it, and I will always listen.

Plasma Cat Media is a fantastic pro recording company -- I was in London for the 2012 Olympic Games, and needed some interviews from locals and other footage for my stint as a Samsung Global Blogger. Sam was extremely helpful, and showed up with every bit of equipment we needed for a great look AND sound. If you're looking for a production company to take your video to a professional level, PCM is a great place to hire. You won't be disappointed... and their rates are competitive, too!

The people working for Plasma Cat Media are top notch professionals when it comes to video production services. From pre-production planning to post-production editing, they're nothing but helpful, knowledgable people looking to make your event or shoot a reality. Some companies wanted to charge me thousands more for one particular production, but PCM worked with my budget to create a plan that was realistic and fair to all parties involved. Honestly, if you're looking for a really great full service production company, PCM does the job (and well)!
