We’re incredibly excited to welcome Alan Cross and Michael Hainsworth of “The World’s Most Popular Podcast” Geeks & Beats, to the Night Flight family. The show brings together two media veterans, Cross a radio legend and Hainsworth a TV broadcaster, to create a smart and captivating weekly program about music and tech, and where they sometimes intersect. One listen to the 40 minute podcast is enough to see how well these two fit into the Night Flight ensemble. Without further ado, we give you this week’s episode of Geeks & Beats:


Taylor Swift isn’t as powerful as you think. The real story behind Apple blinking over the battle for free streaming music. The connected car: why you need to be afraid, very afraid, when it comes to remote access to your vehicle. God Save the KGB — the fascist regime — and the brains behind the Punk movement — if you believe an aging Russian spy. Plus! One more week for your chance to win a pair of sweet headphones from RHA and why God isn’t dead: he’s just at Studio 54.
