Episode 192: Bye Bye Bowie, or “Putting Out Fire With Gasoline”


Art by Helen Green

It’s a new year, and the Never Daunted Radio Network is rollin’ on a somber week, as we remember David Bowie and Alan Rickman while discussing why grieving for strangers isn’t the worst thing someone can do.

First up, writer and podcast host Maura Quint stops in to talk about how David Bowie’s death, if only for the briefest of moments, seemed to cause a cease fire in social media spaces.

Next, as Peyton Manning returns to start in this weekend’s playoff action, sportswriter Ryan Phillips gives his take on the accusations of HGH use that Manning faced, and we discuss whether or not the aversion to hormone use goes deeper than just health.

Later, we continue our discussion with film critic and author Jeremy Smith, this time covering upcoming Marvel films and his take on what were the best films of 2015, including what films and actors deserve Oscar gold.

And finally, Never Daunted Radio Network executive editor Chloe Sommers stops in to discuss the creation of NDRN Green and what readers can look forward to in the coming year.

All that and more on this edition of the Never Daunted Radio Network!
