New Geeks&Beats Podcast Is Ready for Listening/Download

Episode 7 is ready for streaming and for download at iTunes.  This week, Michael and I speak of the 50 billionth download from the App Store and give Songza 3.0 a look.  We also ask about rock covers–what’s the greatest of all time?–and question Beyonce’s choice in toilet paper.  There’s also a handy tip on how to make listening to Justin Bieber–dare we say it?–pleasurable.
