This article was written by in Podcast. 1 comment.


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.

If you are a member of Twitter, follow @greggrunberg for Greg’s personal updates and @yowza for the latest news about Yowza!! including new retailers as they add coupons to the service.

For more information about epilepsy, visit Epilepsy Advocate, Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy (CURE), and of course, TalkAboutIt.org.

Got a good chuckle out of this one – every time Greg mentions Yowza on Heroes – take a shot of ranch dressing.. yumm! :).
