BANTER BLENDER #108: Louis Virtel Talks About Snapping on Jeopardy and Going Viral

Comic and journalist Louis Virtel (Hitfix.com) joins Ben Mandelker (bsideblog.com, Watch What Crappens podcast) to tell us everything about his recent appearance on “Jeopardy,” which subsequently went viral. From the application process to life atop Reddit, Louis shares the whole experience.

After that, it’s just an avalanche of banter, most of it pertaining to Madonna, Whitney Houston, Garbage, Annie Lennox, and many more. It’s a fun episode, and perhaps the longest one yet. Enjoy!

Missed Watson on Jeopardy? Check It Out Here

In case you’re like me and missed the much-hyped Watson appearance on Jeopardy last night, check out the video above which lets you see how it all went down. I believe tonight’s show features the Double and Final Jeopardy rounds, and Wednesday airs all the rounds together as a complete show. But don’t quote me on that.

Nevertheless, it’s pretty cool watching this computer at work, and I couldn’t help letting out a chuckle or two every time Watson messed up. It’s not that the computer erred, it’s just that it erred in such odd ways and with such conviction. It’s like the cat video of computers.

Enjoy!

(Go humans!!)
