The El Show Episode 9: Wikipedia Blunder & Letterman’s Hypocrisy Stinks!

Warning: There’s significant profanity in this podcast.

Richard Laermer and I had a normal Episode Nine of The El Show with both of us in attendance and at our respective offices. We discussed the Wikipedia blunder in which social got dubbed as mass media and then we had quite discussion on Letterman, and the immorality of sleeping with employees as well as hypocritically taking other cheaters to task on his show. Here’s the full podcast lineup on The El Show Episode 9 (follow us on Twitter):

Live Earth: Love, the Climate


As part of the social media team at Live Earth, I am thrilled to announce the “Love, the Climate” campaign launching today, and continuing through Friday, the 25th (landing page coming later this week). Before the Climate Bill goes to the Senate floor, Live Earth is calling upon Americans to set aside partisan politics, and join together for a fun, positive and mind‐changing effort. For more information on the Climate Bill, see this Huffington Post article.

We need your help, too! Please, demonstrate your optimism and faith. Make our senators feel like environmental rock stars. Encourage and motivate them to support a greener future!

Here are three ways you can Love the Climate:

Leave us a voicemail thanking a senator for improving the world and letting everyone know how much you love the climate. Call 347.422.6392 now to leave your message on the Live Earth message line (this is not a toll‐free number) or go to and we’ll call you! Live Earth will highlight the best voicemails on our website and forward the best ones to the senators to whom they’re addressed.

Add to the “Love, The Climate” Facebook Page with a note, a message, a photo, or a link to content that shows how fantastic the climate will be after senators have taken action by passing the Climate Bill.

Here’s my cheesy video ;)

Make a video for the climate demonstrating to senators how amazing life has become in a future where the environment is protected. Submit your video at Live Earth will promote the most creative entries, and forward the best videos to the senators to whom they’re addressed.

Your creativity can help you as well as the climate: all participants who register for the campaign will be entered into random drawings for one of our awesome “Climate Love Packs,” as well as our grand prize, a Schwinn street bike. In order to be eligible for the prize drawings, you must submit an entry form to Live Earth at
