Red Rover, Red Rover, Radio Genius Come Over

We here at Emergent Radio are absolutely thrilled to have Radio Genius join the network. Genius is a long-running geek music show (100+ episodes) started by friends in the mold of every show here on ER: spontaneously. While hosts varied on previous versions of this show, the new edition will feature Jim “The Beer Guy” Behymer (@JimTheBeerGuy) and Aaron “The Beard” Silvers (@AaronESilvers).

From the original “About” page:

We’re geeks. Nerds. Friends scattered all over the country. Started in August of 2007, with a few compadres flying in to Chicago for Lollapalooza, one budding DJ thought he would help them prep for the event by introducing some of the music that’s going to be showcased.

Then, in typical DIY-nerd fashion, that fellow went overboard and distributed a couple of playlists as a podcast to be updated weekly.

We like putting together mixes and this seems like the easiest way to share it with you — whoever and wherever you are.

Random, possibly meaningless, yet enlightening chatter, potentially epic drinks and superb music? What’s not to love? Thanks for joining the network, gentlemen, we’re happy to have you.

<tap tap> Hey, Brian? It’s Judy. Are you writing a blog post welcoming Radio Genius to Emergent Radio?

Yeah, I’m posting it tomorrow.

Aw, I want to do it. I’m listening to their first episode and I really like it.

I’m already mostly done with it.

Can I just say that I really enjoyed it because these guys introduced me to a lot of music and I never have time to just sit around and listen to music with friends and discover new stuff any more, but this was like that…kinda like living in Austin again, but with none of the musicians-standing-around-one-upping-each-other-over-obscure-bands?

Okay, sure. Everyone else, check out the first episode of the new and slightly improved Radio Genius, 2012 in Repose, right now!

#107 – 2012 in Repose


Jim and I return from extended hiatus with a swift (for us) overview of our favorite music from 2012. In a triumphant return-to-form, we illuminate some little known music geekery and go off on tangents.

Aaron's notebook with a Protomen sticker is ironic as he didn't put them on his best-of list.

#24 – You Can’t Beer Everybody


Brian and Judy have a great conversation with Chad Udell about lots of mobile learning (mlearning) stuff (naturally), stuff that isn’t mlearning but people think is, home brewing, Letterpress strategy, and (as usual), we talk about other podcast guests behind their backs.

The drinks

Brian drank Yule Shoot Your Eye Out from Karbach

Judy drank Rudolph Imperial Red* from Three Creeks

Chad drank Merry Mischief Gingerbread Stout from Sam Adams

* Rudolph is indeed an imperial, so props to Chad on calling that. Judy neglected to mention that she liked it quite a lot by the end of the show.

And, out of frustration with Skype, we talk VOIP tools. And Megan issues a challenge.

#21 – We Got Your Buzz Words Right Here


Judy talked and drank with Kris Rockwell and Reuben Tozman, and it was pretty much like this (thanks, Kris).

We talked about the parallel evolution of humans and technology, innovations in learning, HTML5, Tin Can, mlearning, gaming, gamification, and some of the new cliches of the learning world, including The Matrix and Captain Sully.

It was a conversation that could have gone on for hours (and particularly if we hadn’t kept getting interrupted by kid stuff), so we plan to record again soon with these guys.

The drinks

Judy drank Little Sumpin’ Wild from Lagunitas

Reuben drank Woodford Bourbon

Kris drank Johnny Walker Blue
