Geek Actually After Show Ep113 – All Powered Up and Nothing to Wear

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 Cyber War news, lonely man iPhone apps, Christmas lights and a meatball deathstar. 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 Geekdom’. This is the final episode of The After Show for the year and in it’s current form, on January 8th, 2011 the all new Geek Actually will be born. It will be all the geek you’ve come expect and a little tech news for good measure. Merry Christmas (or happy holidays) to all of our listeners and have a great and safe new year.

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.

Your show notes follow:
