Parental Geekery Episode 6 – The Mystery Sound

by on September 24, 2012

Hello and welcome to another episode of Parental Geekery. This week we kick off with an update on David’s sleep habits, and say a very special hello to our friend Claire (no, not that Claire, another Claire!).

Thanks to an audio question from our friend Rob we talk about our feelings towards kids’ parties. Somewhere in the middle of this we introduce our new sporadic feature – the mystery sound. Do you know what it is? Drop us a line at or leave a comment on this blog post and win an amazing prize*

Rob has also recorded an Audioboo follow-up to our discussion about religion. It was too long to include it in the show, but you can listen to it here.

We talk some more about cloud music storage, and turn our critical eyes to iTunes Match. We’ve also had the Sonos system recommended to us by Mark, and have been told about Ruth also manages to sneak in another recommendation for her favourite iOS podcast app – Downcast.

Whilst we’re talking about iOS, you can also hear whether we’ve order any iPhone5s, and there may be some talk about SIM troubles.

We talk about after-school activities as Catherine has had her first ballet lesson this week. Both Catherine and David have swimming lessons at Puddle Ducks and we talk about our experiences with that.

Is David learning his colours? Or is he just being cheeky to his Dad?

We have also experienced our first difficult school dropoffs – after a blissful first few days, has it all gone pear-shaped?

What we’re playing: John’s discovered Continent of the Ninth Seal, is playing XCOM, and we’re both looking forward to the release of Torchlight 2.

* The bit about the prize may not be true… But we will give you a shout-out in the next show, which is pretty amazing!
