Community Update

As you may have heard via the Modern Geek podcast, after the recent GWC meetup we experienced a significant multiple-item gear failure in the GWC studio. It disappoints us, of course, but we can’t complain. Some of the gear we’ve been using to produce the network’s podcasts is over 10 years old, and we’ve been […]


GWC #359: The Next Generation of Old

We briefly revisit Star Trek: Generations, finally appreciating its place in the Trek canon and wondering why we had overlooked the significance of Picard’s family — and loss of family — for so long. We take calls that touch on the power of pink, the time-travel potential of the airplane laser, and the less-than-sexy reality […]


GWC #356: Alien Sex, The Tannen Law

We blast into 2013 with some nooooooos! and enjoy some classic GWC banter. And we run down the Week in Geek, including newly revealed details about Gates McFadden’s Season 2 departure from Next Gen (it had to do with sexism, despite the gender equality Beverly insists upon to Soren of the sack-cloth); the UK’s X-rating of the original […]


Modern Geek #68: Apps, Maps, and Fraps

We run down some of the apps we’ve look at lately, including MetroTwit (Juan’s new-fav Win Twitter client), Google Maps for iOS (now that we’ve had some time to use it), and the Wake ‘N Shake alarm clock (featuring a GlaDOS sound-alike not to be missed). Also, we discuss Juan’s experience with a 24-FPS Hobbit […]



An Open Letter to Michael Bay and Mark Wahlberg: Dear sirs, I want to make you aware of the tremendous opportunity that lays dormant right in front of you. As you break the script for the upcoming Transformers movie I hope you will give a moment of consideration to including the greatest Transformer ever (except […]


Eff This Week #52: Restaurant Lips

Another week, another effing! Audra gets us off on the right foot with (yet another) pee story, and we spend the rest of the ‘cast desperately trying to stay away from Twitter and the political debates.


Modern Geek #44: Twitter DNT, Google+ Friend Grab

We discuss what Twitter’s recent DNT support means to users. We talk about Google+ changes designed to (artificially?) increase your friend list. And we relate some of our recent experiences with the Arduino platform.


FitSmart #4: Choosing and Using a Trainer

We discuss how trainers work: what they do, how to choose one, and how to make use of one. A good trainer can help you create a customized workout plan, help with nutrition, introduce you to equipment and exercises, and generally help you feel at home at the gym, but finding the right trainer for […]


Modern Geek #32: OS X Mountain Lion Preview (Bonus)

We walk you through some of the recently-exposed features coming down the pike for OS X users this summer in the form of OS X 10.8, Mountain Lion, including Airplay screen sharing, iMessage for the desktop, Notification Center, Game Center, enhanced iCloud integration, calendar/notes tweaks, Reminders (with iCloud sync), additional Twitter integration, and the dreaded […]


Modern Geek #31: Win8, Antennagate, Switching, Clear App Review

We run down the news, including Apple’s final “antennagate” settlement (hint: you probably already got yours), our take on the new Windows 8 logo (and Microsoft’s Win8 future), Google’s new Chrome “sign in,” the new Minecraft-themed Lego sets, and this week’s WebOS governance rules announcement. We also offer some tips to a listener who asked […]


Modern Geek #20: Twitter iOS Updates/Desktop Software Sales

This week Twitter deployed major changes to their iPhone app, and we run down the new changes and what they mean to your online social life. We discuss when it makes sense to pay (sometimes big bucks) for a mobile app and when to stick to the freebies. And we take a look at some […]


GWC #298: Geek Gifts

We talk about some of our favorite geek gifts this holiday season. And we run down the week in geek, including lots more Skyrim love, a discussion of The Captains documentary, new Trek 2/12 news (filming and work on effects shots has begun), Sean’s take on Anita Blake audiobooks and sex in magic, some talk […]
