Canned Geek Podcast – Episode 35: Slightly Less Racist

The Canned Geek Podcast is a monthly geek-culture podcast featuring Will Owen and Kyle Evans from Canned Geek and Myself.

The theme of this month was politics and technology in Australia, starting with AFACTs ludicris lawsuit against iiNet where they attempted to place the blame of users committing piracy on the internet provided. Then we discuss the current media business model and advertising before moving onto the next topic: how the South Australian government placed a ban on anonymous commenting. Then we discuss Good Game’s rather good coverage of the R18 video game issue and then we add our much-needed thoughts on the usefulness or uselessness of Apple’s new gizmo: the iPad.

You can download the podcast and see the full show notes at the Canned Geek website.

I recently started watching the anime series Aquarion – but had to give up on the show five episodes into this twenty-six episode series. To illustrate just why I bailed, I decided to review a single episode of Aquarion, titled The Barefoot Warrior.

For regular readers or anyone who reads the dates on articles you probably would have noticed a decisive lack of updates on spacemeat.com.au recently. This is due to a few things, like that pesky thing called life getting in the way, but mostly I have been hard at work producing a new internet video debate show for Privateer Productions called The Lobby.

Here is the first episode and despite being rough and myself rambling on way to much, I think it turned out OK. Big thanks to Lee and Shannon from the hit C31 program The Bazura Project for being our guests.
