    The final episode of VBB has long-time producer and graduating senior Michelle “Hyphen” Polton-Simon as our guest. It’s on to new things for all of us. We say goodbye with a quiz by Tom Polton and a sort of bonusode at the end with a call from producer emeritus Renan Sequitur Dincer bearing news about the lost episodes. Thank you to all of our listeners, all our guests, all the people who have written in, all the kind words. Thanks to all the students and friends who have helped produce and intern for the show over the years, Renan, Michelle, Eric “Wingsy” Weber, Thomas “Willitho” Williams, Johnny “Didn’t Have a Nickname” Gossick, Will “Madison Square” Gordon, Ian “Code” Morse, Andie “Star Student” Mitchell, Ben “The 4th BG” (and “Sesame St.”) Gordon, Claire “Swan Song” Swanson, Jen “Bon Jovi” Giovanniello, and Liam “Per Diem” O’Donnell.

  • 129: Al’s Even Cooler Than He Lets On

    18/03/2019 Duração: 59min

    Artist, poet, podcaster, playwright, producer, and comic book author Al Letson is on the show. He is good at everything he does and we now claim goodness by association. State of the Re:Union, that was his podcast, it won awards for broadcasting, including a Peabody; Reveal, that’s another, more awards, another Peabody; Errthang Show will soon enough win awards. So we do a 10/20/30 about comic books instead of music, a quiz, your standard Fri/Sun, and a round of How Long Is It. After listening, please follow us and our guest on twitter @somelaterdate and @Al_Letson, then rate the show at iTunes.

  • 127: Valley of the Dahl

    18/02/2019 Duração: 54min

    Our guest’s office is right above the studio, which is the least interesting thing to report but one of the co-hosts thought we needed to lead with that. That guest is Yusuf Dahl, the Bradbury Dyer III ’64 Director for Innovation and Entrepreneurship at Lafayette. From a rough upbringing in Milwaukee, Dahl went on to start an affordable housing project, earn a degree from Princeton, and steer the Dyer Center (right upstairs). There’s more, you’ll get to that when you listen. You’ll also find we don’t skimp on the 10/20/30, we run down a few quizzes, and we have a whole time with it, so follow us on twitter @somelaterdate, rate the show at iTunes, and find our guest @Dyer_Lafayette. With thanks to the production team, Michelle and Claire, and credit to Talking Heads and Marvin Gaye.

  • 126: Topping the Charts with Rachel Koh

    04/02/2019 Duração: 55min

    Sustainability scholar, mechanical engineer, community-based designer, Pioneer Valley native, and Vermont school-goer Rachel Koh is our guest. Koh knows things. They co-host Chart Toppers too. It’s all a rich tapestry. We deviate slightly with a first/last/best concert question instead of 10/20/30, but praise be there is no deviation from the renowned quiz. Those new to the show can follow us on twitter @somelaterdate. Those long-time listeners who haven’t can rate the show at iTunes. With thanks to Ben and Claire and credit to Chaka Kahn and Rubblebucket.

    21/01/2019 Duração: 54min

    Our guest is a web development, railroad, scotch, and B-movie raconteur. Not in that order, we don’t know the order. You can’t order those things. It’s Charles Fulton, Senior Web Applications Developer in ITS at Lafayette. Guess what we talk about? Web stuff, trains, scotch, and B-movies. Before that, Vans. Toward the end, 10/20/30 and a quiz.

  • 122: Mr. Smith Goes to Easton

    11/12/2018 Duração: 50min

    Blood-brain barriers, thermal fluids, medicine delivery, mechanical stuff, because mechanical engineering professor Josh Smith is in studio. He’d watch people getting their brains drilled for research, that’s a thing that happens, for injecting medicine. He’s got a PhD from UVA and a Sunday kayaking habit. He’s a longtime fan, a Posse mentor on campus, and a decent enough quiz taker, but wait till you hear about Ben G.’s accomplishment. He (Ben, that is, and Josh too, we suppose) asks that you follow us on twitter @somelaterdate, rate us on iTunes, and subscribe. With thanks to Michelle for producing and Ben and Jen for interning.

  • 121: The Bell of Oechsle Hall

    26/11/2018 Duração: 53min

    Social psychology, stereotype research, gender studies, that’s what guest, native Californian, and professor in the Psych department Angela Bell studies. Download for all of that, but stay because it’s an episode of firsts: our first guest to quote Parks and Rec in a peer-reviewed paper, to have met Amy Poehler and been a UCB audience regular, to have shunned Zack Braff’s cupcake demands, to then get a PhD from Oklahoma State, and to co-host her own new WJRH show “Chart Toppers.” Et cetera. So all that, quiz quiz licorice, blah blah Friday, something Sunday, and we’re out. We then ask this of you: follow us on twitter @somelaterdate, rate us on iTunes, and subscribe.

  • 120: Everything is an NPR Pitch Reel, with Ian Chillag

    12/11/2018 Duração: 46min

    We conned senior producer of Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me, former co-host of How To Do Everything, and current host of Everything is Alive Ian Chillag to come on the show. Then when we had a quiz we forgot to say the winner would get his voice on their answering machine, because we wanted to make public radio jokes all episode, because, but it turns out Ian won and we assume his voice is already on his answering machine so, win-win. Now we’re just filling space before saying we did a quiz and Fri/Sun and had a time of it. All good? Then take a chance to follow us on twitter @somelaterdate, rate us on iTunes, and subscribe. You can follow our guest too @ianchillag. With thanks to Ben G. for producing and Jen for interning. Credit to Blind Pilot and No BS Band’s Mingus cover.

    It’s a member of the cabinet for our season premier. VP Greg MacDonald, of Enrollment Management, takes time away from enrolling for an afternoon in studio. He’s Canadian, we learn that. He’s in charge of who gets into college, sort of. He’s affable too, a really affable guy. Before that we catch up on a few summer things, and during that we have a 10-20-30 question and a quiz, and after we get into election politics, only barely.

  • 115: That AD's Show

    16/07/2018 Duração: 50min

    Athletic Director Sherryta Freeman is our guest for the Season 3 finale. Lafayette has 23 Division I sports. She’s the one who can name all of them. She’s a tempest of talent, an impressive leader, a Dartmouth grad, and a superfan of Janet Jackson and Beyonce. But we couldn’t get them to call in. Even so, [0:00-7:30] we talk about bikes, then [7:30-48:00] we talk with AD Freeman, yes, with the 10-20-30 and the quiz and the stuff.

Senegal, Niger, Madagascar, eight languages—she’s a linguistic wizard—a lot of aid work, policy, development, DC upbringing, and a veritable catalog of modern musical all stars and Afro-infused bands, Afropop, Afro-rhythym.

    Politics, political theory, political organizing, Chicago in the ‘60s, California in the ‘70s, Acorn, get out the vote, put in a stop light, Black Panthers, Berkeley politics, empathy, care, democracy! Those are keywords. The guest is Government and Law professor Josh Miller. We talk politics and political theory, because keywords.

  • 112: Star Student Mitchell Makes Her Way

    28/05/2018 Duração: 56min

    Another year, another intern breaks our hearts by graduating. With a nickname like "star student,” it stands to reason we couldn't expect Summa Cum Laude Environmental Studies/International Affairs double major Andie Mitchell @anandieandrea to stick around for a fifth or sixth year. So we send her off after talking about her Washington State upbringing, twin-hood, fencing passion, choice of the east coast liberal arts Lafayette, Study Abroad prowess, musical taste, and quizzing abilities on Real or Not (“Seattle bands”). When you’re satisfied with all of that, follow us on twitter @somelaterdate, like us on Fb, rate us on iTunes, and subscribe.

  • 111: (Violent) Remains of the Day with Monica

    14/05/2018 Duração: 49min

    Anthropologist Monica Salas Landa is on the show. She’s not violent, mind you, the title’s a reference to her book title, you’ll get to that part about halfway in. Simon couldn’t decide on a title, this is on him. But the show, you were asking about the show: we’ve got Mexican history, museums, museum studies, anthropology, almost archaeology, environmental history, Cornell, it’s always Cornell, good music, good times, good people. There’s your 10-20-30. The quiz. The Fri/Sun. And that’s that. Except for the other stuff, there’re other things too. Our point is, follow us on twitter @somelaterdate, like us on Fb, rate us on iTunes, and subscribe. Plus, follow our guest too, @SalasLanda. We do.
