Geek Pop: October 2012 (Dead Scientists)Posted: October 1, 2012
As it’s nearly Halloween, we’ve gone for the slightly morbid theme of Dead Scientists. And you’ve all done a grand job of bringing the best Dead Scientist songs to our attention. EXCELLENT WORK, TEAM GEEK! We’ve compiled an extended Spotify list including some of the suggestions we had to leave out.
So. Along the twisty twiney turns of this podcast we stumble across: a lady who wants to make love to Nikola Tesla (presumably whilst he was still alive), Einstein’s mum and dad, and a man driven to murder by linguistics. Plus, Geek Pop’s first ever stab at some sort of Poetry Corner, thanks to Lara Charles.
Some links for this month: Helen Arney off of Geek Pops past is on tour with Festival of the Spoken Nerd – tickets on sale now. If you want to read more about the whole Tesla / Edison pantomime go to this excellent Oatmeal cartoon thingy. And here’s the whole sad story of Feynman and his wife.
