Geeks & Beats Episode 19 Now Available (Show Notes, Too)

It’s Wednesday, so that means it’s time for another podcast.  We have one more of these things to do before we take the month of August off.  But have no fear:  we’ll return Labour Day weekend and continue to offer up…well, whatever this is.

In fact, we’re working on a new website–and we’re going to try a Google Hangout on Sunday, September 1 at 7pm EDT.

If you’ve never heard the show, this would be a good chance to get caught up because we archive everything.  And if you’re already a listener, you probably know that you can stream/download the podcast here or subscribe through iTunes here.

And get this:  we have listeners as far away as Kuala Lumpur.  Where are you listening from?  If you’re in the US, we could use another iTunes review or two.

Episode 19 was co-produced by William Philip Loftus.  Another co-producer credit goes to Joseph Sangwin.  Thanks so much for the kind donation and financial support which is going towards buying new gear for the show.  This whole enterprise is turning out to be more expensive than we thought.
