|Messages of the day (email@example.com)|
|Mic from down under sent us this feedback from yesterday's post-show banter. He writes: G'day all,|
I know of the late Huell Howser down here in cold and grey Melbourne Australia, thus blowing Roger's "native Californian" theory COMPLETELY out of the water. COMPLETELY.
(TBH, I suspect I'm a bit of an outlier regarding this :-)
|DTNS Producer - Roger adds: |
And for those who are still scratching their heads, Huell Howser was transplant from Tennessee who hosted an LA based PBS show called "California's Gold". The show featured Huell visiting famous and not so famous California landmarks.
Among the numerous spin-off shows that Huell did the only one that wasn't California centric was a series called "Australia with Huell Howser".
You can find more info at Chapman Universities Huell Howser archives.
|Tony wanted to respond to Tuesday's episode which focused on EU's decision to fine Google for abusing its market dominance. |
I'm a day behind so I just listened to Tuesday's episode with Patrick about the Google EU case involving comparison shopping. I'm not sure what anyone could reasonably expect Google to do other than only run a search company and not offer anything else. If they are are trying to provide the best possible results to an end user and those results happen to be Google properties and they didn't game the search algorithm or artificially prioritize them, they are being as impartial as possible. I agree that there are other areas where a case could be made but this doesn't seem like one. It's asking them to be a slightly poorer search engine anytime there may be competing companies somewhere in the results. Just my two cents...
|Finally Sonia Vining wanted to add her 2 cents to post show discussion we were having last Friday:|
Wow. I thought that once school was out, I'd be able to join the chat room, catch up on the DTNS Slack, and so much else. Instead, I'm a week behind on episodes! But I couldn't pass up an email on the pre-show conversation for Friday, June 23.
re: most embarrassing concert -- I win. I saw Barry Manilow's Paradise Cafe tour in 1985. On purpose. 🤦 At least I somewhat recovered by seeing Don Henley a few years later...
re: Hamilton I saw it last October in Chicago. Unlike my concert list, I've seen a lot of really excellent theatre (kind of my bailiwick) and I can say without reservation, Hamilton is at the top of my list. I truly believe it's a watershed moment in American musical theatre, making as much of an impact as Show Boat, Oklahoma!, and Jesus Christ Superstar in their times. Enjoy!
