Dave and Fab discuss software development crunch, freelance journalism, music and the game Objects in Space. There’s also some geek news to wade through, of course.

Fab was a guest on FLOSS Weekly 492 together with Dan (you know, that guy from Linux Outlaws). Also, he’s going freelance with his day job by the end of the year. He’s also started a new Twitch channel. Dave’s been hit by crunch, and he says it’s as horrible as people say it is. He’s managed to work on his Kill Team stuff, though.

Fab’s been really enjoying Hulkoff. He’s also bought a ticket for Wacken 2019 as Sabaton is headlining.


Fab’s been playing Objects in Space and reviews the game.


Alex Jones is being shut down everywhere, Fab things this isn’t a good thing. Unsurprisingly, Dave disagrees. In other news, there’s now a campaign to fix PUBG. The first thing they should fix is the cheater problem.

Fallout 76 is not coming to Steam. Idiots.

We end the show with your feedback and the bombshell news that Dave has deleted his Twitter account. 😳

We’re not dead and we have some (at this point pretty stale) E3 news. We also talk tech news stuff as well.

We recorded this episode during the week of E3. Due to a lot of shit going on in Fab’s life, it took us ages to release it. We are sorry for this. We hope you enjoy the episode nonetheless.

At the start of the episode, we recap some things that have happened since we recorded the last GNR. This includes The Expanse being saved, and FOSS Talk Live going well. An Fab’s a bit distracted because of this YouTube channel.

Last time Dave took a train in central Europe, it didn’t go so well.

Dave has been to the Rocket League World Championship and Fab talks about how his bike tour through the Alps went. Fab also saw Kiefer Sutherland play a concert in Hamburg an enjoyed it very much. Dave mentions The Happy Song.


We start off the show proper with some general news:

 Netrunner is dead

 Microsoft has bought GitHub

 Paradox has bought Harebrained Schemes


Next up is E3 news. We talk about Fallout 76, The Elder Scrolls VI, Cyberpunk 2077 and the new Bethesda franchise.

We also discuss the PUBG winter map, Jurassic World Evolution and The Division 2. In non-gaming news: Babylon 5 is apparently coming to Amazon Video.

We end the show, as always, with your feedback.

Show Notes

It’s the new year and we are back! In this episode, Fab and Dave talk about The Expanse, the death of Ian Murdock and Dave reviews his OnePlus X. Also: rants.

Nobody’s drinking Baileys. Fab’s having Honey Dew, Dave’s drinking Jura Origin.

As you’d espect, we talk The Expanse. Episode 5, Back to the Butcher, just aired. You can follow the cast and crew on Twitter, and you should – they are live tweeting the whole thing and it’s hilarious. SyFy has also uploaded a bunch of 3D models to Thingiverse that you can print yourself.

Dave tells us about Star Wars and why battle meditation is important. He then reviews the OnePlus X, which you have to have an invite to buy, apparently. Le sigh. They also talked about this on Buggered Impedance.

We discuss Debian founder Ian Murdock, who recently killed himself. Even though you really shouldn’t do that.

Dave now likes Fallout 4 more, since he rolled a new character who kills everyone and wears no pants. Dave recommends the anime One Punch Man and also the EVE: Valkyrie comics.

At the end of the show, we answer your questions and read out your feedback. If you are in California at the end of January and are a Linux nut, you might want to go to the SCALE conference in Pasadena.

Our friend Dan’s going under the knife next week. We wish him all the best!

Show Notes

Here we are, we made it to broadcast number two and you better take a step back because Fab is on the Bullenschluck. Dave really wants princess cake, even though he thinks it’s from Denmark when it is actually from Sweden – it does look amazing, though. On our first proper episode, we talk about Fallout 4 and the awesomeness that is The Expanse.

Fab thinks Fallout 4 is possibly the best game ever made. For Dave, it’s mostly annoying. His rants on the annoying bits are really funny, though. What we can both agree on, is that the robo-butler is great. And he can say a fuckton of names.

We obsess about The Expanse, both the new TV series and the books. The story of how it all came about is pretty amazing. If you want to keep up with what’s going on with the series, the books and the fans, subscribe to the subreddit. Dave wants more three point landings, though.

Dave also thinks you might also want to read the new Dan Abnett book. Speaking of Warhammer 40,000 and Games Workshop, they apparently don’t treat their IT guys very well. We do treat our listeners somewhat better and read out some of your feedback on our first episode.

In virtual space news, EVE Online, which has massive fights, gets more ships. Elite: Dangerous, which has massive expeditions, gets planetary landings. Elite is very beautiful, too.

Show Notes

The first episode of Geek News Radio is finally here. Yes, we did it. We actually started the show and we answer the most important question of all: What the fuck? So. Here’s the show notes for numero uno:

The Welsh make whisky, because why not. Fab’s drinking Scotch, however. More specifically: 16 year old Jura. Dave’s drinking Johnnie Walker Black Label.

Autodesk makes many Android apps, apparently. Our first podcasts were The Bugle for Dave and PowerUser.TV for Fab.

Fab talks about a great Babylon 5 episode that delivers some very on-point media critique: The Illusion of Truth. The TV channel in B5 is called Interstellar Network News and they can’t acronym. Cynthia Torqueman is a great announcer name, though.

We hope you liked the first GNR broadcast. Please tell us what you think. An no, we do not have a Patreon. See you in two weeks!
