CHITTU CHATTU is a conversational podcast hosted by renowned journalist and critic Julianne Escobedo Shepherd, and infamous idea man Ashok "Dapwell" Kondabolu. Episode 1 features web sensation Lil Internet (@lilinternet), whose capacity for dazzling Twitter is topped only by his skills in front of the camera. As the immensely pleasurable host of Karmaloop TV, he brings endless nuggets of delight to all of his subjects, from pro skater Terry Kennedy to Dapwell's own incredibly difficult and reticent group Das Racist (which is how we met him). On the internet, Lil Internet is in a class unto himself; in 2011 alone he perfected the art of transcendant all-caps typing and invented a fake musical genre, #seapunk, which has now apparently turned into a real genre. We discuss all those things and more, including Project Pat, eating dogs, and Y2K, on the debut episode of CHITTU CHATTU.
