Topics (long): 

Working Standing Up

Austin discusses the benefits of working standing up, and his plans to build a standing desk.  Not only do you get more steps for your FitBit, but you also get to think on your feet, which is very beneficial for creative thought.  One solution is to put your coffee on the other side of the room, forcing you to get more steps.

Extended Comics Corner

We have a long (and free ranging) conversation about comics and whatnot: Rumors regarding the new Thor script, a rundown of the Planet Hulk comics and animated film, and we rejoice in Big Numbers for Deadpool.  

With the recent announcement of a Flash / Supergirl crossover, it looks like networks are in a new era of working together.  Suddenly, Geekly-Update becomes a Flash podcast.

We also discuss The Death of Superman Lives, have a brief tangent regarding the possible collapse of superhero comics, Michael puts his foot in his mouth, an The Walking Dead is back tonight.

Then, we get an interlude from The Weather Computer.

David then sells us on the reasons why we should be watching I, Zombie.

Science Corner

David discusses The LIGO Experiment, and the recent discovery of roman roads in the UK.
