The Blerd Radio Podcast

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the final Blerd Radio podcast of 2014!

Big Money, Michael Parr, Dr. Z & Cunningham have gotten all gussied up and we're ready to take over your New Year's Eve...at least before all the parties and fun and stuff.

Anyway, picking up where we left off on Part One, the panel wanders through the highlights and lowlights of pop culture in 2014, including:

-The return of Prince, which elicits a massive yawn from super-huge Prince fan Dr. Z

-Cunningham gives his rundown of the best movies of the year, giving props to Boyhood, Birdman, Pulp: A Film About Life, Death & Supermarkets, & Jingle Bell Rocks!

-He also gives a thumbs-up to the small screen's Mike Tyson Mysteries

-The panel shakes its collective head at the ongoing Bill Cosby saga, one of the weirdest WTF episodes of 2014.

-We say goodbye to Philip Seymour Hoffman & Robin Williams.

A few 2014-wrapping round robins commence:

-Best Concert of 2014, in which we give props to Stevie Wonder, Toad The Wet Sprocket, Living Colour and the late Ian McLagan.

-The "Person of the Year" category leads to a discussion on the recent civil unrest in the U.S. as well as brief chats about the state of the modern music industry.

-Most anticipated Kany...uh, album of 2015.

(also: new albums from Chic, Kendrick Lamar, The Decemberists and Giorgio Moroder get mentioned)

And, finally, the panel picks their three favorite albums of the year-this part of the discussion cuts a swath through The Afghan Whigs, Julian Velard, Big K.R.I.T., Flying Lotus, Big Freedia, White Lung, The Gotobeds and more.

The Blerd Radio Team thanks you all for listening and subscribing. Wait till you see what we have in store for 2015! Happy New Year!
