Podcast Review: Geek News Central

The Geek News Central Podcast is one of my favorite podcasts available. Hosted by a charming man named Todd living in Hawaii, the show is a great mix of personal information about the host and lots of tech and web news. This is already a very successful podcast, as there is almost always sponsorship and the server was recently overloaded with traffic to the site.

It's a great way to stay abreast of new developments in the online world, and lots of fun to listen to. The host is very knowledgeable and respected, often asked to write guest articles on other quality sites. Most shows are about 45 minutes, a bit long, but worth the listen. All conclude with some random, unrelated, but often enjoyable music selected by the host.

Recently, "Todd the Geek" (the host of the show) was approached by a large company to write a blog about their product, for pay. They were willing to pay him a large sum of money on the condition that he not disclose the fact that they were paying him. He refused the offer, has condemned such practices on his show, and now says he's set up a PubSub account to track the company and see if anyone else accepts their offer. He says he'll blow the whistle on them if he can prove it. Just one interesting development on a great site.
