Geek Actually After Show Ep106 – The Digital Rubik’s Cube

Hosted by: David McVay & Josh Philpott with guest Matt White

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.

The Geek Actually After Show is recorded live on Saturdays around 2.30pm (AEST UTC+10). Go to geekactually.com/live to watch it live.

You show notes follow:

This week:

Josh and David give their first impressions on the new AMC TV series ‘The Walking Dead’.

We are joined by a special guest this week, Matt White (better known as SnakeAus to our chatroom) brings us a new toy for show and tell. He has obtained a digital touch Rubik’s Cube and he demonstrates it for us and let me tell you, it is awesome.

But before we start the Rubik’s Cube demo, we have some more fantastic links from our new Geek Actually researcher DeltaKnight.
