The politics and culture roundtable talk show you know and love from KJHK (90.7fm in Lawrence, Kansas) makes the leap to the world wide internets with a hearty f*bomb or two as well as all the unbridled punditry you've come to count on. Since the show is now prerecorded, email your own pundrity to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Roll Models (Punditocracy)
A new season of flying fishnets and sharp elbows is underway for those derby vixens of the Kansas City Roller Warriors. Lauren Taylor, a.k.a. Auntie Embolism, joined us to discuss their upcoming bout and the face-smashing feminism of our very own roller derby league.
Ball of the Wild (Punditocracy)
The rubber-walloping weekend warriors of Kaw Valley Kickball League are back. While the kingly pursuit of kickball has sprouted leagues across the nation, KVKL has developed a distinctly Lawrencian character all its own. This rich pageantry of townies, pre-pubescent sport, and beer has become a summertime staple. Thirty teams representing many Lawrence businesses and other groups take to the diamond every Sunday starting this week, often with costumes and mascots, for the silliest spectacle in short-shorts you'll see around here. Ballers Mike Tiffany, Adina Scanland, Andrea Vieux, Geoff Wright, and Adrian Proctor joined us to preview the new season of Kaw Valley Kickball.
Mark of the Beast (Punditocracy)
Charles S. McVey joins us to discuss his new album,"Animal," and getting peed on by Jesus. (CAUTION: This interview may contain backwards messages.)
Teen Titans of Cinema (Punditocracy)
Could high school students make the next “Citizen Kane”? Well, realistically, probably not. But it’s not like Orson Welles was cranking out masterpieces while struggling with the most awkward years of his life—so the kids in the Focus Film Festival deserve some accolades. Organizer and Lawrence High teacher Jeff Kuhr—along with underage auteurs Chase Billings, Ryan Hobbs, and Kyler Thomann—joined us to discuss the upcoming Liberty Hall event and “Paul Blart: Mall Cop.”
The Taped Crusaders (Punditocracy)
The Found Footage Festival salvages our shameful VHS heritage from the dumpster of history.
The Audacity of Stanhope (Punditocracy)
The noxious depravity of comedian Doug Stanhope, set to soothing digital white noise and space age lounge music.
