44 mins - Published Thu, May 17, 2012 by Breki Tomasson and Jack Marshall

It’s the May 17th show of Geek Positive, starring Breki and Jack!

This time around, the terrible twosome sit down to discuss The Bridge, a television series made by Swedes and Danes, a number of GPS trackers for your family, sex offenders, Diablo III, Max Payne 3, and a number of vehicles to be found in Grand Theft Auto 5. The plot thickens!

The musical feature is Thomas F. Wilson, who played Biff on Back to the Future, singing about the sorts of questions people ask him.

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.
