Thank you all for your patience while we revamped our podcast. We hope you enjoy the new format.
The Universal Geek podcast is now once a month instead of once a week. This makes the 90 minute runtime a bit more easy to consume seeing as you have 4 weeks or so to listen to it all. And instead of discussing geek news, which honestly there are so many blogs doing such a good job of it we barely can scratch the surface, we are doing 'deep dives' on specific topics.
This week, we are discussing the new mobile gaming sensation Pokemon Go.
Sit back and turn the stream to maximum bandwidth - the new Universal Geek podcast is about to start!

When you are clicking through lists of podcasts trying to find the right bit of audio and you can't make up your mind between the podcast of a group of drunk guys talking and the podcast with a group of drunk guys yelling, just you remember what ol' Jack Burton always says at a time like that: "Do you want to listen to four drunk guys talking to each other, Jack?" "Yessir, the download is in progress."
