We’ve Re-Booted the TV Addict Podcast: Episode 1


If there is one thing we here at theTVaddict.com recognize, it’s a popular trend when we see one. So if FULL HOUSE, BOY MEETS WORLD and HEROES can reboot themselves, why not theTVaddict.com podcast! Remember that? Well, after a brief six year hiatus, we’re back. Joining myself on the podcast this week are regular contributors Kelly Thompson and Victoria Nelli to dish about what’s wrong with the Emmys, what we’re watching on television and something called Vidcon! We hope you’ll give it a listen and let us know what you think. We also hope you’ll forgive moi for the rough nature of the first episode. There’s a bit of a learning curve and we hope our sound quality and production quality will improve. Either way, let us know in the comments below or via twitter @thetvaddict
