Packard Pokes At 06: Bacon Apocalypse

This week the live show I had set up originally at ustream.tv did not want to show any video and some people couldn’t even get audio.  My applogies to everyone that tried and couldn’t get in for that reason. The show will be moved to Justin.tv this week. Co-host Eric left early on this episode so after the politics section Dan and I finish the show, however Eric will be back next week. The live show that starts at 9 PM CST (Central Standard Time) or UTC (-6)  You can find the live show at http://www.justin.tv/packardpokesat sign up at Justin.tv so you can join in on the chat room. Registration is 100% free and you do not a need a web cam to listen in and chat with us.
