Parental Geekery episode 19 – steal someone’s chair

by on April 5, 2013

parental geekeryWe open our show this week with an extract from the film The Hunt for Red October

Catherine is off school for the Easter holidays, and Ruth has two weeks off work to look after her and wants to know where she gets her boundless energy from?!

We talk about Ruth and Catherine’s recent visit to London Zoo courtesy of Next, and somehow we get from there to Google backpacks taking photos for Google Maps. Have you seen the Stig in LEGOLand Windsor?

Ruth talks about her experiences using the Hailo app, and John also mentions Uber

We’ve been sent a Kindle Fire HD with Green Throttle controllers to review, and we share our thoughts on the system. This is one of several very exciting developments in this area, and we also talk about the Mii PC and OUYA.

What we’re watching and playing: 24 season 2, Minecraft again, Bioshock Infinite, Farcry 3. John talks about new new humble bundle and we discover the Steam black market. We also talk about Red Dawn, Life of Pi, Slumdog Millionaire and Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter. John also talks about sharing Spider-Man comics with Catherine.

And finally John reveals his secret to successful socialising: Steal someone’s chair.
