    Ep 46: Ryan Elder

    Ep 46: Ryan Elder

    During his tenure as a screening attendee and composer for Channel 101 shows (e.g. GOOGY, FIRE GUYS, PLANET UNICORN, CAR JUMPER, BREAKING GOOD, CLASSROOM), Ryan was highly in-demand, sometimes making music for 5 or more shows in any month's screening! Harmon (co-creator of Channel 101) was thus inspired to apply Ryan's talent and ingenuity to projects like Acceptable.tv, Harmonquest, Harmontown: The Movie, and ultimately he became the musical voice of Rick and Morty... yes, the Adult Swim show! He took some time out from collaborating and using his gift to create tv/film magic, to chat with Todd about how he became the Ryan Elder he is today and how he feels about it! Enjoy : D

    Ep 45: Sam Leibman, Holden Logan & Violet Van Buren

    Meet the team who created the Prime Time show on Frequency 101, GHOST DETECTIVE! Sam Liebman, Holden Logan & Violet Van Buren (the latter of whom will also be returning to Channel 101's Prime Time with GNOME HOMES. For the last internship, semester/season - these three, while creating awesome shows, were operating the machinery that makes 101 GO; helping out during productions, screenings, promoting & marketing for 101.. while hopefully not: getting too many coffees or filling bowls with one color of M&M candy. Not THIS internship, baby!!! Fresh after dispersing from the internship and each other (geographically), the three reflect on their close-knit time, in the heat of it. Enjoy!

    Ep 41: NPRmageddon's Brian Keithley, Peter Podgursky & LeJon Stewart

    It's the end of the world and it's FUNNY! The creative team (Brian Keithley & Peter Podgursky) NPRmageddon, stop by with actor and Channel 101 veteran LeJon ('President Skullgore') Stewart to chat with Todd about NPRmageddon (What this scripted podcast is all about? What inspired it? How close are we to the apocalypse - let alone - a post-apocalypse!?), to list everything they know that's Canadian and of course, the frontier of audio entertainment! Todd is a huge fan, that's obvious, and he thinks you need to check out NPRmageddon IMMEDIATELY!

Deep dives into Channel 101!

I love getting to check in with the talent comedians, filmmakers, and animators that stop by in Todd’s long form interviews. It’s a great way to get to know the various folks from 101’s past and present. Keep them coming!
