Instanews #65: Some People on Facebook are Pretty Bad

51 mins - Published Mon, Oct 8, 2012 by Breki Tomasson, Jack Marshall and Petter Mårtensson

This is Geek Positive for Monday, October eighth!

Today, we rant about Facebook groups where people are idiots, and discuss the ins and outs of what we would do if we got to be dictator of the world. It’s not pretty. Also, I had some horrible problems with the soundboard, so it’s all pretty bad. Hell, even when Petter came on for the Deathmatch, his sound quality was so horrid that I felt the show had finally jumped the shark. At least we got to see him take Optimus Prime against Arkenor-by-Proxy taking Iron Man.

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.
