Geeks & Beats Episode 29 Now Available (Show Notes, Too)

After a little forensic accounting a little bit of waterboarding, I got Michael to agree with me that this is indeed episode 29 of the big show.  He promises it won’t happen again.  (This is what happens when you insist on drinking dirty martinis whilst doing a podcast at 9:15 in the morning.)

Trust me that you’ll want to listen to the whole thing here (the stream and download from the website) if you don’t already subscribe through iTunes (which you should.  Please?)  Here’s what you’ll get:

A discussion on the death of Lou Reed.

Proof that being a musician sucks in the digital era

My problems with a ProTools M-Box and a ground loop hum and squeal that’s driving me insane along wtih some unexplained buffer overloads.

A fresh way to Rickroll your friends.

What I learned about the connected car at the recent DASH Conference in Detroit.

Our winner of the Best. Concert Story. EVER. contest.

Co-producer love from the Rolling Stones Dad and swag support our antipodal fan in Melbourne.

Metal yoga?  Why not?

And we end with an awesome bedtime story from GWAR.

Don’t forget about our monthly Google Hangout broadcast this coming Sunday night. You should join us. Really.
