Hi All,

Just a quick update to let you know there will be no podcast for this month. Instead, we at GNG will be using the extra time to put together a Good News Geek Christmas Extravaganza!

They say good things come to those who wait, and that's exactly what we have planned. So stay tuned and be ready to have your stockings knocked off. We will have guest podcasters, calls to our fans and our trademark banter with all the trimmings.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
