Omaha Fall has, um, fallen here in Omaha. Sure, autumn is still technically a week away. But brisk weather had Jeff and Dusty all bundled up and buzzing about — what else? — the weather for episode No. 106 of the Weekly Wrap-Up, or the "first day of freezing cold" episode, as Dusty dubbed it. Although temperatures were cold, the WWU was anything but, as the co-hosts' conversation was nothing short of sizzling. They even hatched an idea for next week's show that you'll probably want to go ahead … read more

Omaha On account of some technical difficulties, our latest Weekly Wrap-Up video is hitting the site a tad later than normal. So we'll put function over form here and eschew our usual attempts at WWU humor in favor of a more utilitarian introduction: Jeff and Dusty hosted. (Insert current events joke here.)

Omaha In a show that featured a cavalcade of cameos and non-stop nostalgia, the Weekly Wrap-Up celebrated its 100th episode Friday, live from the Silicon Prairie News third birthday bash. Admittedly, it’s taken us a little longer than we would have liked to post this video of the show, but, hey … sometimes that’s the price you pay for partying with Analog the Prairie Dog. In the centennial episode, Jeff and Dusty touched briefly on Thinc Iowa. But, more than bringing their traditional take … read more
