With plenty of goodies in our Google Docs show-notes, Jack and I set of for another adventure in Geek Positive!

It can’t have been missed; today is iPad 3 announcement day, so we share a couple of thoughts and opinions on that. We also discuss Men in Black 3, Jack’s recent Quiz Kids questions for Claims of the Normal #076 and plenty of other great stuff!

The musical feature this episode is the Game of Thrones intro music, as sung by Sophie TurnerMaisie Williams and Isaac Hempstead Wright. You can find the song on the third episode’s commentary track on the recently released Blu-Ray box set of the first season.

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.
