The Geekbox: Episode 138

Karen’s out this week on account of shipping the first quarterly issue of GamePro; we’re hoping to get the whole crew together next week to discuss the Doctor Who season six finale. But for now, you get to hear us ramble on about stuff like web browsers and inverted camera controls. This is what happens when no girls are on the podcast! Sheesh!

The Geekbox: Episode 137

The Internet’s Ray Barnholt joins us once again, and you really should check out his awesome magazine, Scroll (now on issue #3!), if you haven’t had the chance yet. Also, just to put it out there: This Friday is — of my own free will — my last day as the executive editor at GameSpy, where I’ve spent the past two years (and some change) writing and editing lots of great gaming content. So if any crazy fans have some crazy desire to employ me, hey, I’m on the market for the time being!
