The hoverboard is here! And 4 months before Marty McFly gets his. We’ll look at the technology behind the Lexus deck. Apple Music is here — we’ll look at the streaming service and how the evolution of music resembles the software industry. Who’s going to play the Super Bowl half time show? Britney versus Taylor Swift is more like the Pepsi Taste Bud Challenge than you think. Plus — the winner of the RHA in-ear headphones, and why percussive flatulence can lead to a $500 fine.

Feeling rested? How can you not given that June 30, 2015, had a leap second added to it? Now our clocks have been readjusted to the stupid Earth which insists on having its rotation dragged down by the stupid Moon. Oddly, the leap second didn’t come up on this week’s show. We must have run out of time. Ironic, that.

For more–and we have a crack team of writers adding content to the website every day–go here. The G&B Swag Store is open 24/7 for your convenience.  Here’s where you can subscribe to everything we do. You can listen to us on the radio every week. (Yes, there’s an actual G&B Radio Network.)

We’d also love it if you left us a message at (323) 319-NERD. And if you’re not already a subscriber to the podcast through iTunes, well, you’re a bad, mean person. Repair your karma by doing it now.

Are you into audio production? We’re always looking for jingles, stagers, memes or anything else we can use in producing the show.

PS: Please like our Facebook page. And if you’re in the a “liking” mood, go here, here and here , too. Dammit, we suck at “likes.” We need more. Please?
