Geek Actually After Show Ep098 – Cronenberg

Hosted by: David McVay, Josh Philpott, Calum Wilson Austin & Shane Gregory

Welcome to the Geek Actually After Show. This un-stuctured and un-planned podcast is what what you get after we finish recording the two main shows Tech Actually and Film Actually. We basically just leave the mics on and record whatever we feel like talking about. This show gives us a chance to talk about anything that didn’t fit into the format of the main shows.

This week Calum challenges Josh’s review of David Cronenberg’s ‘Videodrome’. This opens us up to a deep analysis of ‘Videodrome’ and the work of director David Cronenberg. I don’t think we convinced Calum but it was a great discussion. We also discuss the science of shockwaves in Star Trek and Star Wars plus Facebook sues Teachbook.

Some Links of things we discussed:
