This is a love story. And, oddly enough, it starts with an interstellar space mission and a golden record.
Head-writer/puppeteer Joey Mazzarino and writers John Weidman, Christine Ferraro, Belinda Ward, and Molly Boylan tell Ben how to get, how to get to Sesame Street in this bonus-sized episode which also includes a visit to the Muppet Workshop and brief interviews with puppet wrangler Lara McLean, costumer Connie Peterson, and puppet designer Rollie Krewson.
Amanda Lund and Maria Blasucci join the Matts to talk about the sexiness that is James Bond and Casino Royale!
I’m Ken Plume, and soon you’ll be listening to “A Bit Of A Chat” with me, Ken Plume.
In this episode, I have a chat with with writer/presenter Charlie Brooker about absurdity, wipes, games, charity, and wacky Chris Morris.
The interconnectedness of all things, or finding compassion in TCP/IP.
Ben Hammersley is the Prime Minister’s Ambassador to Tech City, but don’t hold that against him. He’s really quite a fascinating and charming gent and not at all a smarmy politician.
When he’s not running marathons in the Sahara desert, Ben is a writer, broadcaster and journalist. He reports on the effects of the internet on society, foreign policy, business, and culture …not just on his blog either; his writing has appeared in proper dead-tree publications like The Times, The Guardian, and Wired UK (where he is Editor at Large).
Daptone would like to present the one and only Binky Griptite in his natural habitat, showing off his skills on the radio waves at the WDAP studios.

Stories of how people cope after brushes with death. Sometimes death comes as a disease. Sometimes it swims up and bites you. And sometimes it’s a pen or pencil, sitting there, just waiting for you to ingest it.
Tig Notaro’s comedy set is at Louis CK’s site.
Rich and his wife have made the ultimate commitment: they’ve been through their DVD collections and are getting rid of any duplicates. Some lucky audience member is going to win them all! But before that it’s time to talk to the star of The Calcium Kid, Peter Serafinowicz. Fans of Star Wars will be creaming out of their arm pits when they hear his tales of working with George Lucas and having to pay to go the premiere. Astonishing stuff. Rich provides an alternate reading of Darth Maul for the next director’s cut. There’s talk of zombies and Tony Wilson, Terrance Stamp and Will Arnett and lots of inside gossip about working on US and UK TV. And someone is going to win a copy of East is East. C’mon it doesn’t get better than that.

This week on Here’s the Thing – Alec sits down with fellow Long Islander Billy Joel – at the piano – for a conversation about life and the musical choices he’s made.
Joel joined his first band at age 14 and became the third best selling solo artist of all time in the United States. He’s sold more records than The Stones, Bruce Springsteen and Madonna, but at this point, he says, the “rock star thing” is something he can “take off.” “I go shopping, I cook my own food, I wash the dishes, I take out the garbage … And the music has nothing to do with money or career. It’s just part of me. It’s like love.”
