The Totally Rad Show

Jun 15, 2007

I've been meaning to discuss The Totally Rad Show for some time now, and I'm just now getting around to it. For those unfamiliar with the show, TRS describes itself as the "summer blockbuster of geek news shows." Alex Albrecht (from DiggNation), Jeff Cannata, and Dan Trachtenberg all host the show, and they talk about movies, video games, television, comics, and more. One of the great stylistic elements of the show is that it is shot entirely in front of a green screen. Throughout the show, as the guys bring up various topics, related images appear behind them. The effect is subtle, but it really adds to the overall presentation.

TRS is currently on its 12th episode as of this writing, and I have followed it since episode 1. The content of the show is entertaining, and I've been introduced to several really great things based on their discussions. If you're a geek, or you like video games, movies, and more, be sure to check it out. If nothing else, it's a great thing to listen to at work. :-D

At your recommendation, I'm subscribing to the MP3 feed. I can't really watch video at work (well, I could, but I wouldn't want my boss to see it..). I have gotten into podcasts lately, once I figured out they were just RSS feeds that pointed to MP3 files, and not some proprietary Apple iTunes thing. Listening to the same music over and over at work just got old..

Yeah, I have friends that still say, "I can't listen to your podcasts because I don't have an iPod." It is an unfortunate name. Netcast just didn't catch on.
