Parental Geekery Episode 3 – Eat, Fast, Live Long and Prosper

by on August 23, 2012

Welcome to our third episode, and this one is rather special as it was recorded on our 14th wedding anniversary. Yes, when you’re an old married couple you apparently have nothing better to do on your anniversary than sit around producing podcasts!

John reveals who the harshest critics of his photography are, and we both reveal that neither of us reads the other’s blog – shocking I know!

We talk about the 5:2 diet and how we’re getting on with it – there is some more information about this on Ruth’s blog, and you can see the Horizon documentary here on YouTube although as we mentioned there’s something weird going on with the camerawork.

Our big topic for the week is Catherine starting school, and we talk about the process of choosing a school. John rants about religion in schools, and we talk about trying to make the most of our time before she starts, and how well we’ve done at that.

We have listener feedback, thanks to Melitsa from the Raising Playful Tots podcast – well worth adding this one to your podcatcher if you look after pre-school kids in any capacity.

We flash back to old-fashioned computing again, and John talks about his love for Blue Meanies.

What we’re playing this week: Puzzle Craft (iOS only I’m afraid) and Temple Run (iOS and Android). John’s had good experiences with Doggcatcher and Pocketcasts on Android, and we’re looking forward to seeing Brave in the cinema. John’s been listening to Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card and The Road by Cormack McCarthy on audiobook, and Ruth’s going to try to read The Joy of Less on Kindle.
