Parental Geekery Episode 8 – Drawing with Sausages

by on October 4, 2012

We open this episode of Parental Geekery with an excerpt we hope you all recognise, which leads us to talk about Catherine’s new-found love for Jeff Wayne’s musical version of The War of the Worlds. Ruth tries desperately to remember the rise to fame of Kerry Ellis, and both of us look forward to seeing the War of the Worlds live tour later this year.

We talk about how John’s Daddy days have changed with Catherine starting school, and how he’s getting on with his new one-on-one time with David.

We mention our Google+ page – you can add us to your circles by clicking the button on the right hand side of our website, or through this handy link.

We reveal who guessed the mystery sound from episode 6 and our obscure film reference from episode 7.

John’s got a new phone. He has finally turned to the dark side and bought himself the new Samsung Galaxy Note 2. Hear his first impressions, and prepare yourselves for much “Apple vs Android” debate in future shows! Mapgate gets mentioned again, and John talks about getting the Google Music app installed on his new phone.

Carrying on the Google theme we talk about Google Now, and wonder just how much Google knows about us, and whether we should be worried about it all…

We have an audio question from a new listener! Steve from The Coffee Hour Show asks our opinions on Windows 8. As you’d expect, John has an opinion, and happily shares it!

John has watched Snow White and the Huntsman and The Hunger Games, and is playing Bad Piggies. Ruth is still somewhat jammed on World of Warcraft and berates her lack of spare time.

Oh you rotten wotsits! A live concert version of War of the Worlds? I’m jealous.

Did you ever reveal what the actual mystery sound was from Ep6? You talk us who guessed it correctly, but not the actual answer, as far as I can tell.
