This is episode 69 of Geek Positive for Monday, October 22nd!

It’s Breki’s first day of work, which means lots of things! New podcast introduced over at The Post, new title format for the existing shows, and all the things are fun! Hurrah for fun!

On today’s episode, we talk about all sorts of things, including Jack’s upcoming move, Breki’s new job, Petter and Arkenor’s new fighters for the Deathmatch of Death and More Death, as well as the results of last week’s fight between Yoda and Thor. We also discuss who should do the upcoming Assassin’s Creed movie, what areas have the best graffiti and much, much more.

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.
