In our E3 special, we get a visit from Petter Mårtensson, one of The Three MMOsketeers!

We began by talking about the recent lot of passwords coming out from LinkedIn, eHarmony and Try the password utility from Lastpass if you’re worried your password’s been stolen. Also, Jack’s review of Game of Thrones, the directors announced for Captain America 2, and the recent rumblings about DC Comics movies.

The musical feature of the episode was Diablo 3 Rap by Dan Bull!

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.
