Geek Actually After Show Ep111 – Google Earth Sex

Hosted by: David McVay & Josh Philpott

Welcome to the Geek Actually After Show. This week on the un-stuctured, no rules, geeky after show podcast that we call Geek Actually we have trees in Google Earth, the latest Kinect hacks, geeky Christmas decorations, fake murder scenes, QWERTY waffles and a breakfast that will make you drunk. That is what what you get when you get a few geeks together after we finish recording the two main shows, Tech Actually and Film Actually. We run through DeltaKnight’s geekiest links of the week. Basically we leave the microphones on and record whatever we feel like talking about. This show gives us a chance to talk about those things that didn’t fit into the format of the main shows. It’s all in good geeky fun – Think of it as your ‘Week in Geek’.

The Geek Actually After Show is recorded live on Saturdays around 2.30 to 3pm (AEST UTC+10) depending on how long the main shows go. Go to geekactually.com/live to watch it live.
