Episode 38 of Upon Further Review!

We’re back with another heaping helping of ideas, information and interesting items (okay, we’ll lay off of the alliteration now) in Episode 38 of Upon Further Review!  In this episode we thank our listeners, particularly our new friends from Sluggy Freelance and elsewhere, before moving on to the main event:  first, we look at the life and legacy of the late Kurt Vonnegut; second, wii get moving (literally) with our review of the Nintendo Wii; and finally, we listen and learn as we take a look at the How-To Girl vidcast.

Finally, we conclude the show with exactly 33 seconds of silence, one second for every person lost in the Virginia Tech shootings.  Our hearts go out to all those affected by this awful tragedy, and we hope you will all find the peace which can only come with time and patience.  (Podsafe intro music provided by Sharif (“You’re My Girl”).)

Episode 37 of Upon Further Review!

Easter’s on the way, and just like the Easter Bunny himself we’re here with our usual basket (of, er, reviews) in Episode 37 of Upon Further Review!  In this episode we thank some listeners for their feedback and contributions before getting into the meat of the show:  first, we get a little crazy with our review of March Madness, the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament; second, we return to Victorian London as we look at the Theatre for a New Audience’s production of Oliver Twist (and this isn’t the one you remember from the movies!); and finally, we take on a review request from a new fan with our foray into the world of web comics, Sluggy Freelance style.  As always, we appreciate your ideas, opinions and review suggestions…and of course, we hope you’ll tell friends where they can find a place to contribute the same sorts of things (hint–the initials are UFR)!   (As usual, podsafe intro music is provided by Sharif (“You’re My Girl”), outro by David Henderson (“We Gotta Go”).)
