Episode 3.07: MC Frontalot
In this episode of MC Hawking's Podcore Nerdcast, Ken, Len, and Cassie talk about the Joel Dongsteen Twitter bot. Len drops some Science News about an egg-shaped black planet. Ken still hasn't mixed down Len's mic, so there's lots of heavy breathing. For Nathan's Book Nook, Ken tells us about Mike Bockoven's FantasticLand: A Novel. We play a game! Jame's Cocktail Corner: The "Gingito", a ginger beer inspired mojito. Cassie brings us the latest in Dino News, in which paleontoligists have found bird fossils in China that may be ancestors of the present-day cassowary. (But we still don't know if dinosaurs quacked like a duck.) Will It Suck: Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. And after that we interview MC Frontalot extensively, during which we talk about his upcoming tour, the right way for Ken to talk into his fancy microphone, the mystery of whose idea it was for Front's song I'll Form the Head, old school televisions, and a whole lotta politics. We get Front to rap! Front doesn't remember what his favorite dinosaur was growing up, but now it's the pterodactyl (which he wasn't aware is no longer a thing). And at the end, we include MC Hawking's remix of Front's song Mountain Kind!
