Instanews #30: 2012-05-28

1 hour - Published Tue, May 29, 2012 by Breki Tomasson and Jack Marshall

Today is Monday, May 28th, and another episode of Geek Positive hits the stands!

This week, apart from the usual banter, we talk about Bungie skipping E3 2012, a horrible viral video from Halo 4, Facebook’s rumored acquisition of Opera, Sweden’s win of Eurovision 2012, and much, much, more.

The musical feature of the episode was The Dragonborn Comes, a guitar cover of the popular Skyrim tune by Malukah. Before that, there was also Cassetteboy vs The Diamond Queen.

Find us at @BrekiT and @Tofu_Jack and the show’s own Twitter; @Geek_Positive; we’ll be back in a couple of days! Also, remember to join the CSICON Network on Reddit! We’re at /r/CSICON.


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.
