Geek Actually Ep151 – All Good Things Come To An End

Hosted by: David McVay & Josh Philpott

This week on Geek Actually David and Josh take a look at the weird and wonderful world of geeks. Stories include terminator style robots a reality, unmanned fighter jets, synthetic blood, bendable self powered e-ink paper, pumpkin carving with combustible gases, a killer asteroid and crazed gunmen who think their neighbour is threatening them telepathically! All this plus edible spray paint, listener feedback and our picks of the week. Enjoy.

It is a sad day as this will be the last episode of the Geek Actually podcast. Due to new work commitments something had to give, so after three years and 151 episodes, this podcast will no longer be produced.

Fear not though as we aren’t going anywhere, Film Actually will continue and we have a new podcast that has just launched about comic books called Behind the Panels and you can still find those shows here at geekactually.com or search for them on iTunes.
