Instanews #24: 2012-05-03

This is Geek Positive for Thursday, May third!

Jack has finally seen The Avengers, so a great deal of the show is Breki and him talking about the movie. No massive spoilers, so don’t worry if you haven’t seen it yet. We then talk about the new trailer for Prometheus and the new trailer for The Dark Knight Rises, one of whom reveals far too much and one of whom reveals absolutely nothing at all. We then talk about two The Elder Scrolls-related pieces of news, the first DLC and the upcoming MMO. Exciting stuff. Last, but not least, we talk about the Tardis Corset of the Day, given to us by starklykit from Reddit!

The musical feature of the day Rachel Bloom’s fantastic song You Can Touch My Boobies.

Find us at @BrekiT and @Tofu_Jack; we’ll be back in a couple of days!


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.
