The Plan8 had the joy of interviewing Dr. Kirsten Sanford, PhD. (Twitter). She is a PhD in Neurophysiology and is also an independent science journalist. She is lovingly known by her fans as Dr. Kiki. She is heard weekly on her UC Davis based radio show “This Week in Science”, also available in podcast form.
The Plan8 interviews popular internet podcast host, and over all cool geeky guy, Jeff Cannata (Twitter). Raised in California, he graduated from UC Santa Barbara in 1999 with a BFA in theater. Cannata has been acting since 2000 and has appeared in movies, commercials and theater. He became the co-host of the geek culture review podcast “The Totally Rad Show” (2) in March 2007. He is also an improv comedian, performing with the group “The Returning Champs“. Jeff also is a member of the cast of the online dark comedy podcast “Very Angry Neighbors“. Cannata has also began appearing on the World of Warcraft video guide series Project Lore.
The Plan8 today interviews Jonathan Coulton. Jonathan is known for such projects as his Thing a Week. A Project where he would make a new song and post it each week. A few of those songs became big internet hits. Such as a folky cover of Sir Mix-a-Lot’s “Baby Got Back“, a funny video called “Flickr“, a popular viral song “Code Monkey“.
The Plan8 had the pleasure of chatting with the geeky tech show host Veronica Belmont.
