This week our special guest is author Tim Ferriss. Tim sat with us for an hour and we talked about his new show on HLN, his amazing new book club, cool stuff about the quantified self, sleep hacking, and more. We even got a story that wasn’t in the books!
The guys are swamped this week so they take an informal chat approach like the old days while still covering the usual goodies and the guys cut loose on get rich quick schemes.
In this episode of Grumpy Old Geeks we talk the dystopian future of The Circle, what are they smoking at Snapchat, anti-rape clothing, sleep tips, working tips, business tips, just the tips. It’s a humdinger!
This week our show sounds like an homage to Edward R. Murrow’s reports from the London Blitz. Brian explores the pubs and sweet shops of Jolly Old and has a run in with the Royals. Jason requires caffeine but opts for a morning Miller to liven things up.
Happy Halloween from the geeks! Our first Halloween episode is very long and extremely salty. Definitely NOT for the puritanical. Hot sauce. Big butts. Facebook riddles. Stupid nerds. Smart writers. Nefarious employees. Inept government. More!
Apple released a bunch of new goodies. Japan needs to lay the hell off with their “science”. What the hell is up with Wyoming? The fastest week in security news ever and a bunch of other stuff we usually do.
Jason tempts the fate of the Pod Gods and gets smote upside the head. The American Dream is a fallacy. Scaling back can lead to a happier and healthier life. Kickstarters, podcasts, and books we actually like! And we visit the happiest place on Earth.
Mike Vinikour joins GOG this week for a fascinating talk about the dirty underbelly of how video games are really made and interesting career paths. Audio gets wonky for a few minutes at the end but it fixes fast so power through! I promise, one of these day’s we’ll have an episode without a Skype fail or BSOD.
In a world where the government has collapsed, journalism is a ghost, and people really use the word “twerk”… Two grumpy geeks take to the Internet to bring you their weekly dose of fart jokes and gravitas.
Meandering through the twists and turns of this weeks news and events the guys hit on many absurdities and curiosities until ending up somewhere completely unexpected.
Jason got his hands on the new iPhone and burnt some stuff so we could give you a pretty video! Watch in 1080p fullscreen for the full effect.
After some extreme technical difficulties the guys shat out one of their best episodes to date. Not really but c’mon. They can’t all be winners. Amiright? Just kidding! It’s awesome as always. Jason has a new iPhone 5S so what else ya gotta say?

In this thrilling episode the guys talk about how to become a programmer, discuss some of their go to productivity apps, bag on the douchery of the NSA and toss out some subversion tactics, give away some free music, and generally have a great time.
The long overdue video demo of NeverWet that I shot after we used it on some boards for our outdoor furniture. There’s even a cameo appearance of my Mom’s idiot dog for the animal lovers out there.
Guest-less again this week, Jason and Brian discuss how to keep 2 dev Macs in sync, being silly on the internet, tele-dildonics as the real wave of the future, why 3D is bad, and quite a bit more. Also, science conclusively proves Jason is an A-Hole.
We took a break from our parade of guests this week to have a follow-up chit chat on many previous topics and finally finish the damn book! We also discuss the future of GoG as well as a new show and Brian goes all epic ranty. Good times!
