The first TV, eh? live Internet radio show will air Sunday, April 20 at 11 am Pacific/2 pm Eastern and weekly thereafter. Listen live at Blogtalkradio or call in at 646-200-4063 to join the fun. That’s a New York area code, but you could try Skype for cheap long distance – 2.4 cents/minute to the US.
For the first show we’ve got some great guests lined up. Robson Arms returns to CTV’s regular schedule, and co-creators Susin Nielsen and Gary Harvey are first up to talk about the show’s third season. Have a question for them? Call in live, or leave it in the comments and I might ask it for you.
My brother the technogeek, Steve Wild, will talk about what wacky television shows he watches and how he watches them: he’ll discuss TV on the web, how networks are missing the boat and how they’re not. CBC has experimented with bittorrent, for example. Next, maybe they’ll experiment with using bittorrent for a show people want to watch.
And screenwriter/journalist Mark Leiren-Young was at the Senate committee hearings on Bill C-10 so he’ll be on the line to report on that controversy. Call in with your opinion: censorship or prudent oversight of taxpayer money?
Yes, the “weekly” thing is a change. Gulp. Don’t make me do this alone – call in on any given Sunday at 646-200-4063 or offer to be a guest. It will be focused on but not limited to Canadian shows and issues, so the possibilities are wide open. Listen live Sundays at 11 am Pacific/2 pm Eastern or listen to the archived podcast afterwards.
