Ep 38: No real limits of any kind apply here…

Grumpy Old Geeks Podcast —  December 15, 2013

In this pre-holiday run up we clear out our libraries and dump our brain buckets on you. Books may be the new TV but we talk some TV too. Zombies tech takes leap forwards and Snowden is still chillin in Russia. Basically, the usual, but fresher!
