Yet another new series is officially launched on the CSICON Network today, with Jack and myself sitting down to record the first episode of Geek Positive!

In the episode, we talk about Mark Zuckerberg’s letter to his investors, the upcoming Star Wars Kinect game’s new feature; The Galactic Dance Mode, as well as the trailers for upcoming television series Awake and movies like The Avengers and the upcoming Batman and Spider-Man flicks.



Instanews was another one of Breki's attempts to create a tech news podcast in the long chain of iterative podcasts that includes Geek Positive, CSICON Radio, The Brainstorm and Geekdays. It ran for 129 episodes, initially co-hosted by Jack Marshall and, in the final run of episodes, by Teppo Tastic.

Both Petter Mårtensson and Arkenor Oakshadow featured as regular guests for a segment known as The Deathmatch of Death and More Death, a ladder-style competition that pit heroes and villains from popular culture against each other. Petter and Arkenor would argue the case for their randomly picked hero of the week, and listeners would vote via the website.
