Episode 3 of the Geeks and Beats Podcast is Up!

Geeks & Beats is the new music-and-tech podcast I do with Michael Hainsworth (BNN, CTV).  Episode 3 is now available for streaming or download through iTunes.

I know I sound funny on this episode of Geeks & Beats.  Odder than usual, I mean.  That’s because i’m in Singapore conducting a little business before my wife and I steal off to Thailand for a few days. So yes, I do sound like I’m a million miles away because I am.  Michael, however, is back at G&B HQ and sounds as normal as ever. Well, as normal as he can, anyway. 

So with that caveat out of the way, here’s what you can expect from this week’s show:
