Show Notes

Mike joins us for an impromptu Warhammer 40K lore chat and we discuss starting out in Elite Dangerous. Additionally, Dave and Mike recap the Sabaton gig in Dublin.

As Dave continues to point out, we couldn’t do the show without Bytemark’s BigV.  We thank them very much.

What are we drinking this episode? Mike’s enjoying Gammel Dansk, while Dave has a whole battery of drinks ready. Some are even in his lap. Fab’s enjoying pints of G&T made with The Duke. He prefers Centauri Mega Gin, whenever possible, though. Also: the seed bunker is real.

Before we even start the show proper, Mike manages to rathole it with a huge discourse on The Master of Mankind and the nature of the Imperium of Man. This includes interesting tidbits of how the Albigensian Crusade and Château de Montségur relate to the 40K universe.

We are nominated for the Linux Questions “Linux/Open Source Podcast of the Year” award. Even though we aren’t a Linux podcast by a long shot. It’s hilarious! In other news, PETA is going after Games Workshop because of all the animal skins on Warhammer models. We think they are actually serious as well. Comedy gold. You can’t make this shit up!

Dave and Mike talk about their trip to see Sabaton in Dublin. Mike accidentally discovers the perfect Sabaton concert shoes in the process.

Mike has bought Elite Dangerous and Fab tries to recruit him for the Hutton Truckers. We also talk about the upcoming character creator and multicrew features. In the meantime, Star Citizen is forging ahead as well.

We end the show with your feedback, which involves this graph.

Show Notes

We enter a new year, but Geek News Radio stays the same as always. This episode, we bring you Elite news, predictions for the year and talk about The Expanse.

We start the show off with our usual overview of what we’ve been up to and explain why it took us so long to get back on the air. Good news: You can now listen to the show comfortably on your Sonos via TuneIn.

On Dave’s initiative, we give you some predictions for the current year:

There’s a Necromunda video game coming. In other news, Brian Krebs thinks he has figured out who authored the Mirai botnet.

We also review our Bullet Journal experience so far and Fab talks about the new Expanse book Babylon’s Ashes.

One topic keeps coming back to us through the whole episode: Just why is Enterprise such a good show? We attempt an answer.

We move on to Elite news: The Thargoids are coming and there’s a Kickstarter on for a pen and paper RPG set in the Elite universe. Meanwhile Fab’s joined the Hutton Orbital Truckers.

Fab also talks about his trip to Jaques Station in Colonia.

At the end of the show, we mention the GNRBBL and then wrap up with your feedback.
