    130: Goodbye-phen to Hyphen

    The final episode of VBB has long-time producer and graduating senior Michelle “Hyphen” Polton-Simon as our guest. It’s on to new things for all of us. We say goodbye with a quiz by Tom Polton and a sort of bonusode at the end with a call from producer emeritus Renan Sequitur Dincer bearing news about the lost episodes. Thank you to all of our listeners, all our guests, all the people who have written in, all the kind words. Thanks to all the students and friends who have helped produce and intern for the show over the years, Renan, Michelle, Eric “Wingsy” Weber, Thomas “Willitho” Williams, Johnny “Didn’t Have a Nickname” Gossick, Will “Madison Square” Gordon, Ian “Code” Morse, Andie “Star Student” Mitchell, Ben “The 4th BG” (and “Sesame St.”) Gordon, Claire “Swan Song” Swanson, Jen “Bon Jovi” Giovanniello, and Liam “Per Diem” O’Donnell.

    129: Al’s Even Cooler Than He Lets On

    129: Al’s Even Cooler Than He Lets On

    Artist, poet, podcaster, playwright, producer, and comic book author Al Letson is on the show. He is good at everything he does and we now claim goodness by association. State of the Re:Union, that was his podcast, it won awards for broadcasting, including a Peabody; Reveal, that’s another, more awards, another Peabody; Errthang Show will soon enough win awards. So we do a 10/20/30 about comic books instead of music, a quiz, your standard Fri/Sun, and a round of How Long Is It. After listening, please follow us and our guest on twitter @somelaterdate and @Al_Letson, then rate the show at iTunes. With thanks to Michelle for producing and basically co-hosting this one and Claire for intern work. Credit to Maceo Parker and Blackway & Black Caviar.

    128: What’s Lee Upto(n)?

    Poetry, literary criticism, essays, fiction, and collaborative art. Our guest, Lee Upton, has published fourteen books so far. Fourteen, our goodness. She’s Lafayette’s Francis A. March Professor of English & Writer-in-Residence and you better believe she has a ton of awards, so just go to her homepage or Wikipedia page and search them out. We talk about a lot of that stuff and do some quizzes, 10/20/30 music, Fri/Sun, and the like. If you’re new to the show, follow us on twitter @somelaterdate and rate the show at iTunes. If you’re not new to the show, why haven’t you done that yet? We see you Erik. Anyway. Our thanks to the production team of Michelle, Ben and Claire, and credit to The Grateful Dead and Puffy Daddy with Sting.

    127: Valley of the Dahl

    127: Valley of the Dahl

    Our guest’s office is right above the studio, which is the least interesting thing to report but one of the co-hosts thought we needed to lead with that. That guest is Yusuf Dahl, the Bradbury Dyer III ’64 Director for Innovation and Entrepreneurship at Lafayette. From a rough upbringing in Milwaukee, Dahl went on to start an affordable housing project, earn a degree from Princeton, and steer the Dyer Center (right upstairs). There’s more, you’ll get to that when you listen. You’ll also find we don’t skimp on the 10/20/30, we run down a few quizzes, and we have a whole time with it, so follow us on twitter @somelaterdate, rate the show at iTunes, and find our guest @Dyer_Lafayette. With thanks to the production team, Michelle and Claire, and credit to Talking Heads and Marvin Gaye.

    126: Topping the Charts with Rachel Koh

    126: Topping the Charts with Rachel Koh

    Sustainability scholar, mechanical engineer, community-based designer, Pioneer Valley native, and Vermont school-goer Rachel Koh is our guest. Koh knows things. They co-host Chart Toppers too. It’s all a rich tapestry. We deviate slightly with a first/last/best concert question instead of 10/20/30, but praise be there is no deviation from the renowned quiz. Those new to the show can follow us on twitter @somelaterdate. Those long-time listeners who haven’t can rate the show at iTunes. With thanks to Ben and Claire and credit to Chaka Kahn and Rubblebucket.

    125: How to Train Your Senior Web Applications Developer

    125: How to Train Your Senior Web Applications Developer

    Our guest is a web development, railroad, scotch, and B-movie raconteur. Not in that order, we don’t know the order. You can’t order those things. It’s Charles Fulton, Senior Web Applications Developer in ITS at Lafayette. Guess what we talk about? Web stuff, trains, scotch, and B-movies. Before that, Vans. Toward the end, 10/20/30 and a quiz. After that, follow us on twitter @somelaterdate, rate us on iTunes, and subscribe. You can follow our guest too @mackensen. With thanks to Ben for producing. Credit to Santana and The Band.

Is this thing on?

I bet it is.

leilab94 ,

Fascinating look into the life of a liberal-arts college

Great conversations, both profound and trivial. The combination of professors and interns is the best part!

MathiasSam ,

Hilarious. Timely. Stately.

Love it, catch it whenever I can. Keep up the great work!
