Geekbrief is dead... long live GEEKBEAT!

One of the very finest podcasts I have had the pleasure of being a viewer of has come to a sad end. GeekBrief TV, created by Cali Lewis and Neal Campbell, has been a wonderful source of information, entertainment and inspiration these past few years. The first episode went live back in '05, and the final episode has hit today. There have been business and personal issues aplenty for the guys behind the show in recent times, and thus these differences have resulted in the end of the show.

This is a kick in the guts for geeks like me, who had come to love each episode of Geekbrief and have always found a ton to enjoy in each one (including the ever-wonderful out-takes at the end of most episodes). After nigh on 800 episodes of shiny, happy tech news, I must admit to being rather sad to see GeekBrief go. It's been a staple part of my media intake for years now, and Cali Lewis is one of the most pleasant presenters in the business. I can't help but feel for Cali and Neal as their long-running series ends, and can understand Cali's visible distress in this final instalment. We'll miss you GeekBrief.

The final episode of GeekBrief TV:



However, it would seem that Cali's time as a geek show presenter is far from over. As well as her continuing work in the social media industry and its many marvellous outlets, she's coming back on June 28th with a brand new show, GEEKBEAT! This new show is being brought to us from Revision 3 (home of DIGGNATION, THE TOTALLY RAD SHOW, HAK 5 and many more of the finest online shows available). I don't know a great deal about this show yet, but from what I gather, it's set to be much along the same lines as GeekBrief TV was. We shall soon see.

I'm gonna miss GeekBrief in a big way, but as long as Cali Lewis is showing up in my feed, I'll know that I'll never be short of cool stuff to check out on a regular basis.

So thanks for the years of great shows, Cali and Neal. Good luck for the future to both of you!
