Tech tAUk November 19, 2011 – Epic Hamburger Time Edition

Would you be able to eat a 15.9 pound hamburger? For our Thanksgiving special last fall, we did exactly that. In this memorably-filling episode, we trek down to BGR The Burger Joint in Dupont Circle and pick up their infamous 9-Pounder Burger to feast upon. Meanwhile, during the feast, each of our crew members shares who or what he is thankful for, and we proceed to negotiate with the crew members union to resolve our semester-long labor dispute.

Check out the teaser ad for this episode for a preview!

Our tech headlines this week:

In the Game Zone, Josh is joined by gaming correspondents Andrew Hersh and Chris Pyle to discuss the nominees for the Spike Video Game Awards, and PETA releasing a protest Mario-knockoff game called Mario Kills Tanooki.

Finally, Josh’s Random Geeky Fact of the Week looks at a patented Pie-Filling Device from 1986, and our Viral Video of the Week looks ahead to the holiday season with a look at an awesome new app for A Charlie Brown Christmas.

About Douglas Bell

I live in Washington, D.C., and work as a Broadcast Technician at WAMU 88.5 FM, the local NPR affiliate in the Washington metro area. My primary shift is to engineer the local feed of NPR’s Morning Edition, including local news and weather, long-form features and station breaks… and yes, the shift starts at 5 am, so I’ve got the whole quasi-nocturnal thing going on. I am also the Coordinating Producer for Ken Rudin’s Political Junkie, an independently-produced podcast and public radio program. Extracurricularly, I play cello, and participate in a church choir and a handbell choir. I enjoy discovering new places, and am constantly searching for the perfect cheeseburger. I am also known as a frequent teller of puns.
