Spectrum of a Rebel Yell

Spectrum of a Rebel YellBlendover Episode Ninety:

Tom Cheredar joins us, as we listen to a “rebel yell” from the American Civil War, thanks to a recording made by the Smithsonian. We look at Netflix employees hacking Fitbit, so your movie will pause if you nod off; and also discover 8tracks, an online music service. Devin Townsend has a new project called Casualties of Cool – which was put on Pledge Music.

BlendoveR is a fun, hard-hitting podcast where rules are regularly thrown out the window in favor of honest, open commentating opinions.  Presented by Greg Davies (cGt2099 from The-TrukstoP.com), and Terr Ciavarra (Media Nox from medianox.bandcamp.com), we stray on to any topic that presents itself or wanders off onto its own tangent.
