Opening Sketch: “There’s a Kat For That” Take a piece of Ginger and the Geek home with you, thanks to the Kat Cooper Mobile App. It can give exercise encouragement, offer outfit advice, test the quality of a restaurant’s ranch dressing and yes, even review films–ask it what it thinks of Alvin and the Chipmunks 4: Squeak by Squeak-West. (written by Daniel J. Hogan)
First Segment: (00:00 +/- 14:30) Live, from the Lansing Public Media Center (recorded 03.20.2012) Kat Cooper and Daniel J. Hogan (along with producer Melik) chat with Louise Knott Ahern (of the Lansing State Journal) about her search for Gray Wolves in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Gray Wolves were recently taken off the Endangered Species list, and Louise headed north to see if she could spot some in the wild.
Second Segment: (+/- 14:30 – End)
John and Kyle from the Great American Fierce Beard Organization talk about their fierce beards and their upcoming charity events, including a prom at Gone Wired Café.
