I explain why my Irish accent of choice is that of Liam Neeson and try to make sure everyone is ready for tonight’s festivities by proctoring a St. Patrick’s Day quiz.

 

 

Job Jenny, Bill McCormick, and the Movieman

March 14, 2014

Jenny Foss called in to talk about her new book, The Ridiculously Awesome Linkedin Kit Jenny is an author and career advisor  who is best known for her blog at jobjenny.com.  She talked about how LinkedIn is essential for for those looking to make a career change, establish valuable networking contacts, and keep one’s big toe in the pool of a particular industry.  We also learned why not being on LinkedIn basically means that you’re invisible.

Bill McCormick  from the World News Center made his weekly appearance on the show.  Today Bill investigated the role of Chicago in the world of super heroes.

The Movieman  reviewed  Veronica Mars and Need for Speed.  I invited him to my Veronica Mars slumber party; he invited me to check out his Six Second Reviews.

 

Michael Ian Black

Ever since I first saw him on “The State” in the mid-90s, Michael Ian Black has been one of my favorite comedy performers.  We discussed his work in “Stella” and his new show on TBS, “Trust Me, I’m a Game Show Host.”   Winners receive $240 worth of pudding.
