‘The Colbert Report’ writers Opus Moreschi, Eric Drysdale, Nate Charny, Michael Brumm, Meredith Scardino, and Aaron Cohen are featured on Episode #115 of the ‘Nerdist Writer’s Panel’ in which they ‘discuss how the show is put together, writing jokes, and just how good Stephen Colbert really is.’
Stick around for the full podcastinterview, No Fact Zone and Colbert News Hub get a nice shout out from the writers around the 45 minute mark.
In what I can only describe as being more stressful than trying to get giant panda’s to mate, getting the Hub back up and running has been one stress filled adventure. After many many hours of tech support help from the ever wonderfully patient Michael, and Jeffery and Christopher from Hostgator tech support, we have managed to iron out the errors caused by the recent WordPress update and get the site back up and running.
There may still be a few errors present, so please bear with us while we continue to check over the site and ensure that all errors, issues and anomalies are addressed. If you come across any problems on your travels around the Hub, please shoot me an email just in case we’re am not aware of that particular issue.
A big thank you to CNHelper for manning the Hub Dash and updating the site throughout our Hubpocolypse. Finally, thank you to everyone for their patience during this period. We have done our best to keep you up-to-date with the latest Colbert news through our social media accounts, but don’t fear we still have plenty of goodies to share with you over the next few days.

Brooklyn based rock band ‘Baba Yaga’ was brought into being with the joining of Morgan Jesse Lapin (drums / vocals), Dave Keen (guitar / violin / vocals) and Zach Rose (bass / guitar / keys / vocals). With influences ranging from Motown, Garage, Surf, Classical and Tribal, the trio self describe their sound as ‘a series of varied tonal qualities performed simultaneously over a succession of percussive slaps and thuds in several assorted time measures and motifs’. In 2012, the trio composed the theme for ‘The Colbert Report’s Hobbit Week’ entitled ‘The Pundit: Or Colbert and Back Again’, and in March 2013 released their self-titled studio album ‘Baba Yaga’.
Can you believe it, two whole years have passed since our little Hub was born!! Blogs, they grow up so quickly *tear*
On behalf of the staff and community at Colbert News Hub, Happy Birthday to Stephen Colbert! In celebration of our fearless host’s birthday on Monday, May 13th, we are once again reactivating our DonorsChoose Page. Your generous contribution will not only honor Stephen in a practical and tangible way, but also help deserving schoolchildren in need of important tools for their education.
In an effort to mobilize our community to fund projects for the most deserving students, we tried to select the best possible theme for this year’s initiative. Shortly after watching the TCR interview with Charlie LeDuff and listening to his anguish about his native city of Detroit, we received a mass email from DonorsChoose CEO Charles Best. He voiced his concerns about Detroit-area schools, stating that “budget cuts and financial mismanagement have left many classrooms barren. Students and their families are suffering. Against these odds, dozens of Detroit teachers are using DonorsChoose.org to give their students a better chance.”
For that reason, our page is focusing on projects supporting children in Detroit. Here are a few we would like to help fund:
We thought that Stephen would approve of the science projects we selected on our page, as science-related topics have played such an important role on TCR.
Several projects are well on their way to being funded. They just need a little push to get the supplies finally to the teachers and kids. Colbert News Hub will get things going with a $50 donation. Help us celebrate Stephen’s birthday the best way we know how – by making a difference for our least little brothers and sisters. A little goes a long way.
Colbert News Hub has been nominated for a ‘People’s Choice Award’ at the ‘Best Australian Blogs Competition 2013′.
The annual competition celebrates the diversity, power and fun of blogging, and is judged on the appearance and writing of your blog, and on interaction and social media.
