Geeks and Beats Podcast Episode 4 Now Available (Show Notes, Too)

April 10th, 2013 | by Alan Cross

In case you haven't heard, I have a new podcast that I co-host with Michael Hainsworth (BNN/CTV) where we geek out over various things, including a lot of musical topics.  

I was in Thailand during this taping and I had Skype fired up through WiFi on the laptop sitting on my balcony overlooking the Adaman Sea, so if you listen closely, you can hear the wildlife in the background.  

On Episode 4, we give two thumbs up for the film reviewer who never took the time to write about soundtracks. We’ll tell you why the film “The Breakfast Club” could never be made today – and why Simple Minds had to be dragged kicking and screaming into the recording studio for the top track. Facebook Home.If you lived here, we’d be spying on you already.Plus why the next big thing from Zuckerberg isn’t being well received.

We speak of guitar solos and how they seem to go in and out of fashion (that's this week's "Ask Alan" segment).

New pictures emerge almost 2-decades after the death of Kurt Cobain. And Alan gives me yet another reason to never leave the house.

And finally, two words: fish heads.  Actual fish heads.  In a tasty curry broth.

Stream the podcast here or download (and subscribe!) through iTunes.  You'll be glad to you did. And please let us know what you think.  We're on a mission with this thing.
