Two days last week I went for a walk in my lunch breaks, mainly to and from the supermarket but it kept me out of trouble and got me away from my computer for a little while. Also I walked from work to The Fountain rather than catching the bus (which would have shocked Chris a bit more if I hadn’t had to prompt him to check his phone when I got to The Fountain).
Anyway, that has very little too title. I was listening to music but then started to get bored with the small amount of music that I have space for on my phone (I keep trying to take pictures and it freaks out and tells me there isn’t enough space!). I decided to listen to podcasts instead. I’ve been listening to a couple of them anyway but decided to tell you all about them.
EPIC FU is up first – really this is a video podcast so I tend to watch it when I can sit still rather than when I’m walking around. This is all about geek culture and all the bits and pieces that come with that – the current post on their homepage is all about Top Travel Apps. EPIC FU started life as JETSET until it was renamed. It’s created by Zadi Diaz and Steve Woolf. It’s won various awards including Webby Awards and Streamy Awards.
Being a geek is all about having a passion for something—films, bands, technology, video games, going green—and that passion makes you totally kick ass! EPIC FU is all about stoking the flames of geek passion, and therefore improves your kick to ass ratio with every viewing.

Next up is Wez Wanders this is a reasonably new podcast from Nathan aka Wez who lives in Australia. In a six degrees of separation kind of way I got to know Wez via Ruby or maybe it was the other way round.
Anyway so Wez has a podcast, it’s all about travel and his adventures. I got to know Wez when he did a trip of about 8 countries in two months or something crazy like that. He started in Japan and worked round to England and then back round to Australia.
The Wez Wanders Travel Podcast is about well… travel. Wez talks about travel news, what’s been happening in travel, travel tips, as well as great destinations to visit. Do you have any questions about travel? Ask Wez and he will answer them on the podcast.
Jelly and Bean is one of my favourite podcasts at the moment. All about tech, TV and movies amongst other things. I even got a mention after emailing Jelly following the first podcast back in November.
Jelly aka Daniel Farrelly and Bean aka Branden Maynes are also from Australia and are friends with Wez too! Branden is married to Ruby so as you can imagine it’s all a bit crazy and I got to know them all via Twitter, later by Facebook and then met Jelly and Mrs Jelly a few months back when they were in England for their honeymoon.
Do you like tech? Games? TV? Movies? Well DANG. We have so much in common already! Jelly and Bean are two super pals who like to talk about all of the aforementioned topics, resulting in a nice little peek into the world of geeks, all in the form of a delicious weekly podcast that can be played into your ears!
