Welcome to My Podcast

To paraphrase The Firesign Theatre, we're all A/V geeks on this bus. We can't get enough about Blu-ray players, high-def displays, receivers, speakers, room acoustics, content creation and distribution, and all the other elements that contribute to an exceptional audio/video experience. To feed that need, I'm delighted to introduce a new feature to UAVHome Theater Geeks, a weekly, hour-long podcast in which I chat with the most important and influential technical experts in our industry about all things audio and video.

The podcast is produced by our friends at TWiT (This Week in Tech), the online home of Leo Laporte, nationally syndicated radio talk-show host and tech guru to millions of fans around the world. Aside from his weekend call-in radio talk show that covers all aspects of digital technology—on which I appear as a regular guest—Leo's team produces a bunch of tech-oriented podcasts, including Home Theater Geeks, which is now available right here on UAV.

So far, my guests have included industry legend Tomlinson Holman (the "TH" in THX), video guru Joe Kane, Pioneer VP of advanced product development Andy Parsons, Sony Pictures VP of advanced technology Don Eklund, venerated home-theater designer Anthony Grimani, THX Senior Fellow John Dahl, and Stacey Spears and Don Munsil, creators of the HD Benchmark setup and test Blu-ray. Upcoming guests are scheduled to include AIX Records founder and recording engineer Mark Waldrep, LCD-projector inventor Gene Dolgoff, and pre-eminent speaker designer Kevin Voecks. And there's plenty more where they came from!

So there you have it—a podcast by home theater geeks for home theater geeks. I hope you enjoy it! And if there's someone in the industry you'd like to be a guest on the show, please let me know by posting a comment here or e-mailing me at scott.wilkinson@sorc.com. Until then, geek out!
