Geek Actually Ep145 – Josh’s Luscious Hair

Hosted by: David McVay, Josh Philpott & Richard Gray

We’re Back!!! New studio, same show! This week on Geek Actually, the strange case of Percy Foster, fear of Wi Fi, iinet announces NBN pricing, Thunderbolt comes to PC,  Gumby tries to rob a 7-11 and the 7 pound Gummi brain. All this plus the picks of the week, listener feedback and Josh gives us a big games rundown. Enjoy.

Geek Actually is the fusion of the old Tech Actually and Geek Actually After Show podcasts. All the tech and geek goodness that you have come to expect from the old shows wrapped up and made easier to swallow as one simple, little, tasty podcast. DeltaKnight (AKA DAvid Murray) continues to supply us with some of the geekiest stories on the web.

Geek Actually is recorded live on Saturdays around 12pm (AEST UTC+10). Go to geekactually.com/live to watch it live.
