The show that started it all.

The first episode of GDAH was released in December 2008 with Daniel M. Clark, Joe Magennis and Sam Harrelson. Scott Jangro joined the cast in the third episode and some combination of the four guys ran the show until January 2010, when it was re-branded as Geek Dads Weekly.

Last week I wrote about some baby products that weren’t completely unnecessary; it was a completely unasked-for response to a post by Keith Wilcox at almightydad.com. I promised there would be a follow-up, and here it is! Positioners, protectors and leashes – oh, my! Keith’s Part Two can be found here.

This week’s episode of Geek Dad @ Home plows through tons of recommendations and links to products and services that we are using. We got into some long discussions about Geek News, podcasting, and system backups (both local and cloud based).

This first part of the show is dedicated to the two big news stories of the day: The Beatles and the Apple event. The Beatles have a new set of remasters and Apple has a new lineup of iPods and a new iTunes. We cover my epic failure with the show recording over the weekend (hint: don’t look for it on the site), WordPress, WordPress plugins, and Joe’s weekend camping. Swine flu is next, then car seats and horses & kids. We finish up with predicting what kids will be like as teens and attending evening events when you’ve got kids to deal with. All-in-all, a good hour of Geek Dad-ery!
