NOTE: This episode contains an important announcement about
the future of Couch Surfing.
Kim Butler, the Queen Bee of Podcasting (trademark pending) drops in to geek out about Xena, Scott Pilgrim and to recommend some literature. Yeah, as if anyone reads anymore... The rest of the show notes are as follows:
00:02:30 - Kim starts things off by talking about this new show she's watching, you may have heard about it, Xena: Warrior Princess.
00:07:56 - The Lesbian element that became an influence on that series and some of its characters gets discussed.
00:12:49 - John can't say enough great things about Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, but he will certainly try. He also enjoyed Monsters Vs. Aliens, which results in talk of the differences between Pixar and Dreamworks Animation studios.
00:22:56 - Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World is a movie that existed for all of two seconds at the box office. John managed to see it. Both the film and the books are discussed, including the important balance between style and substance.
00:41:41 - Michelle from Indiana writes in with her thoughts on the big tobacco debate from Episode 35: Where There's Smoke, There's Fire.
00:51:19 - A new listener named Neil sends some praise, but is also looking for an alternative to iTunes reviews, brought on by a disdain for Apple Products.
00:57:53 - Film maker, Teague Chrystie sends in appreciation for John's support of Down In Front, via Whedonesque. This provides even more fuel to the fire. It's a wonderful cycle of praise that never ends, except when it does.
01:06:13 - Kim closes out the show by promoting the myriad of podcasts she's involved in. You may want to write these down.
