About the Podcast
Tandem With The Random is a biweekly podcast focusing on interesting people doing interesting things from all walks of life. It is hosted by Brian Kelley, a central New Jersey-based writer, musician, public affairs/public relations consultant and science/technology enthusiast. In a word, he is a multi-faceted geek who also is obsessed with “Doctor Who”. The name is derived from a line in the Peter Gabriel song, “Humdrum,” and was also the name of the column Brian wrote as executive editor of The Rider News, the student newspaper of Rider University, during the 1996-97 academic year.
