    Current Geek 249: Everything is better in space

    Welcome to Current Geek! The talk show about items of interest to the geeks of the world, and YOU. I'm Scott Johnson and he's Tom Merritt

    This week we're starting a new idea. Once a month instead of reviewing the geeky 'news" (which we'll still do) we'll dive in deep on a geeky topic. We'd like to get these topic ideas from YOU so email them to currentgeek@gmail.com or submit them on the subreddit at currengeek.reddit.com. But to give you an example of how this all works, we came up with a topic ourselves this time.

Great cast

Best topical discussion show out there!

I heard about this podcast from the excellent Sword n Laser and dived into it cautiously, thinking it probably was going to be good. But to my suprise it was absolutely excellent, mixing great conversations about fandom with in depth scientific predictions. Keep up the good work Frogpants!

Another great Frogpants show

Having just listened to episodes 1 and 2, I'm happy to say that this is another high quality show featuring familiar voices from the network. The focus on geek and tech news and discussion is maintained throughout and delivers a well rounded podcast that is on topic and isn't four friends telling in-jokes. Looking forward to future episodes.
