    We Have Concerns Debuts at #8 on iTunes

    So excited to announce that Anthony Carboni (Rev3Games, DNews, Bytejacker) and I have teamed up for a brand new comedy podcast called We Have Concerns.  We take interesting or unusal news stories and pick them apart to reveal our own existential dread and the hilarity therein.  It is different, deep, and ridiculous.  I guantee laughs.

    If you know me from my video game and movie shows, this might seem a bit of a departure - but if you know me from my comedy improv roots with AB3 and The Returning Champs, or my sketch history from Very Angry Neightbors and Double Jump, it will feel like finally coming back home :)

    The response to our lauch episodes (and the test episodes before that) has been tremendous.  We launched as the #8 Top Rated Comedy in iTunes, and #29 overall across all podcast categories.

    And were highlighted as "New and Noteworthy" by iTunes

    The popular Android App Pocketcast rated us as the #1 Top Trending Podcast

    So CHECK IT OUT!!

    We Have Concerns.  New episodes every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

    Jeff Cannata Joins the /Filmcast as On-Going Co-Host

    I'm pleased to say that I've joined the extraordinarily popular, long-running /Filmcast as their regular "third chair".  I have been a fan of the show for years, and have been a guest many times, but I am especially honored that David, Devindra, and Peter invited me to join their team in an ongoing basis.

    I thikn the /Filmcast, like its parent website, /Film, represents the high water mark for movie and television discussion on the internet, and I'm thrilled to be a part of the discussion every week.

    This week, we have a lot of fun with Transformers 4: Age of Extinction.  You can listen to that episode here.  And I encourage you to subscribe!

    DLC Goes Daily For E3 Week!

     

    E3 is the biggest event in the video game world.  Every year, it is the showcase for the most important  announcements, most shocking news, and most access to upcoming games.

    And this year, to cover the event to the fullest, my gaming show, DLC on the 5by5 Network, is going daily for each jam-packed day of the convention!  You can listen live each night to Christian Spicer and myself breaking down our first-hand experience of E3, alongside a special guest, or download each show for listening later.  Even better, you'll be able to participate in the chatroom and call in directly to ask questions and offer your own opinions about all of the announcements.  Here is all of the information you'll need to get the most out of our explosive E3 week on DLC:

    My First Audio Book Narration... Available Now!

    That's right!  Two long years in the making... more than 35 different characters with unique voices, over 14 hours of rip-roaring science fiction... all available now on Audible, iTunes, and Amazon.

    I really feel this is a fantastic novel, and I'm proud to be associated with it.  The story centers around our first contact with an alien species from beyond the stars... but the twist is that it is told from THEIR perspective!  An alien race, farther down the evolutionary timeline that homo sapiens, trying to understand our culture in all its facets.  This is a funny, action-packed, insightful, and ultimately moving tale that I thoroughly enjoyed.  And I'm quite proud of my work in bringing it to audio life.

    I hope you have a chance to check it out and let me know what you think, either here, or as a review on Audible.com or iTunes.

    If you need further convincing, here is a video I did about it:
