This week’s episode was inspired by the exciting-but-scientifically-questionable Jurassic World trailer (here). We talked to a Manitoba mosasaur expert, Matt Duda, about how accurately the trailer depicts its sea monster. This week’s Indisputable Top Ten: the dinosaurs Jurassic World could have used.
In our last episode we talked about Fairy Tales without an expert. This time, we talk to Cat Tosenberger, a professor at the University of Winnipeg and an expert on fairy tales, Harry Potter, and pornography. This extra-long interview is extra-interesting. Enjoy!
This week is a shorter episode about fairy tales. Join the Gents as they talk about wolves, the most messed up tales and monsters, and read an old German storybook using only pictures.
A few weeks ago, the Intelli-Gents went to Central Canada Comic Con. Riley was home, and Mike was a fish out of water. We talked about it at length here.
Anyway, while we were there, we saw an opportunity. We thought, “This is a convention for proud, learned nerds. Let’s see what they know.”
So we asked. We talked, we filmed, we researched, and it turned out we were right. Quite a few people knew stuff.
Here’s what we learned from C4:
Time to talk comics! In this episode, the Intelli-Gents visit Central Canada Comic Con (C4) and talk comic book heroes. They also interview two aspiring comic book artists from Lytwyn Studios and a veteran of the Winnipeg comic scene, GMB Chomichuk.
The Gents spent a good portion of the day at Comic Con in Winnipeg today. We podcasted. We shot video. We spent money. It was fantastic.
Look forward to a video in the next couple of weeks, featuring costumed characters from the Con. In the meantime, our next podcast is about comics—go figure—and features an interview with this guy:
We also have an interview with Matt Lytwyn and Jake Basarowich, aspiring comic book artists who released their “zero issues” (previews) at the con:
The podcast is out Wednesday, Nov. 5. Stay tuned!
We’ve been learning a lot about speechwriting in class lately, so we decided to make a video about it. Enjoy!
