Here it is y’all, episode 002 of LansingNext, starring Julielyn Gibbons and myself. For those that don’t know about the show yet, here’s the skinny:
A weekly Internet talk show focusing on the people, issues and events affecting Lansing’s next generation.
We recorded this Monday night and we totally hit it out of the park. It was the exact opposite of how the recording of the first show went (there was a bit of a learning curve for JL and I). This episode was recorded “live on tape,” meaning we did everything in order as if it was going out live. The first show was done out of sequence and sort of pieced together.
In today’s episode, we talk about a super-high speed Google Internet fiber possibly coming to Michigan and Google Buzz in the first segment (I also make a reference to the film Short Circuit in hopes of explaining technology running amok to Julielyn).
In the third segment, we chat with craftbeer enthusiast, John Palmer (Twitter, Facebook), about microbrews and beer breweries in Michigan (and I accuse Julielyn of setting the Guinness Brewery in Ireland on fire). I also share the legend of the Nain Rouge of Detroit.
Online security and such is the subject of the fourth segment, including Julielyn’s “Microphone Rule” when it comes to social networking. But, we shift gears and chat about the Team USA v. Team Canada ice hockey game. Which was AMAZING.
Our last segment features JL and I sharing favorite recipes and the always popular, “What’s on Your iPod?” segment. JL picked “Call Me” by Blondie. My choice this week was a medley of music from the video game Contra, done as a high-energy heavy metal song by Lansing band Year 200x (Twitter, Facebook).
I believe that starting next week, the episodes will be hosted on TalkLansing.net and they’ll be on iTunes sooner than later.
