Parental Geekery episode 16 – geekus interruptus

by on February 28, 2013

parental geekeryIt’s Her Royal Highness’ Matched Luggage. A quote from one of our favourite films. Find out what Catherine did this week that made that quote come to mind.

Junk modelling – love it or hate it? Ruth makes her feelings known on the subject.

David seems to have started getting cheeky – we talk about the way he seems to be deliberately getting things wrong.

We review the Acer Iconia B1 – an Android tablet that retails for £99, and John reveals what he’d like his next phone to be – the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.

Ruth took Catherine to see The Lion King on stage and talks about what they both made of the experience.

John ambushes Ruth with a goat that sounds like a human screaming, and things go from bad to worse with the help of Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber and Bon Jovi.

What we’re playing includes Minecraft: Feed the Beast and Tera. We’re watching 24 Series 2, House of Cards, One Born Every Minute and Call the Midwife. Ruth talks about listening to the ProBlogger book on Audible, and we mention Up and Down by Oliver Jeffers.

Apps we mention during the show are:

DSLR controller

Kid Mode


Falcon Pro


Photoshop Touch (available on both iOS and Android)

Snapseed (iOS and Android)

Amazon Cloud Player
