I’m a little delinquent in posting about this. When I attended Blu-Con last month, I met a couple of guys at lunch who were covering the conference for a home theater podcast called ‘HD Nation’. They seemed like nice guys, and gave me a bunch of good suggestions for restaurants to try during my trip to San Francisco the following week. Ever since then, I’ve been meaning to check out the podcast. For whatever reason (mostly procrastination), I kept forgetting about it until now. Anyway, I finally hunted it down, and it’s definitely worth a look for anyone interested in the subject.
If I have my timeline right (and I may not), hosts Patrick Norton and Robert Heron both worked for TechTV back in the day. Norton was one of the hosts of ‘The Screen Savers’ there, until the network was swallowed by G4 and ‘The Screen Savers’ was replaced by ‘Attack of the Show!’ (The less said about that, the better.) Norton and Heron (and others) later moved to an “internet television” company called Revision3, where they currently work on the shows ‘Tekzilla’ (which covers gadgets and technology in general) and ‘HD Nation’ (which focuses specifically on video and home theater).
These and a number of other shows can be watched on the Revision3 web site, on YouTube, on iTunes, or several other outlets. The following is the episode with Blu-Con coverage. (Unfortunately, they don’t talk about my panel in the episode.)
This episode is of course more than a month old at this point. There have been several more since then. New episodes run on Tuesdays. Give it a look if you have some time to spare.
