Geeks & Beats Episode 27 Now Available (Show Notes, Too)

Is it just me or is this fall’s crop of new TV shows really weak?  Network TV is certainly a wasteland when it comes to new shows (although I don’t mind The Crazy Ones, the new Robin Williams/Sarah Michelle Gellar comedy).  Premium cable isn’t much better, either.  I’ve even lost interest in Boardwalk Empire. Maybe I’m just in some kind of post-Breaking Bad funk.

Time to get caught up on some Netflix watching and podcasts, I guess.  Which brings me to Episode 27 of Geeks & Beats.  Here are your show notes:

David Byrne might be a great musician, but he’s a terrible futurist

I went to see “Gravity” this weekend. It made me mad–although the sound was good

Interview: Dr. Marco Scandurra, the guy behind the cordless digital music player.

We have our contest!
