Today’s Consumerism Commentary Podcast features an interview with Greg Grunberg, star of the NBC television series Heroes and drummer in Band From TV, a celebrity band to benefit charities. Greg, Tom Dziubek, and I discuss Yowza!!, the new iPhone (and iPod Touch) app for saving money co-created by Greg.
We also discuss Greg’s roles as an advocate for education about epilepsy and as a parent of a child with epilepsy. He created the website TalkAboutIt.org to educate the world about seizures and other aspects of this condition.
