About Cali’s Geek Brief
Geek Brief TV is a 3-5 minute video podcast, released 4-5 times a week. We cover news about technology, consumer electronics, and Web 2.0 projects.
We’ve gotten a lot of requests to make the Briefs longer than five minutes. So why don’t we? Our goal with Geek Brief is to keep people up to date on what’s happening in technology without investing a lot of time to do it. We don’t think technology should be boring, and we have a lot of fun producing Geek Brief. Plus, we’re two people, and as it is, one 5 minute Brief takes 7-12 hours, so increasing the time of the show would increase the production time. We’ve got to sleep at some point! 🙂
Geek Brief’s audience includes a wide range of people, from IT professionals to stay at home mothers, from teenagers to the age of 65 (if you’re older than that, I want to know about you!)
We released the first Geek Brief TV December 23, 2005, never having done anything with video production, on camera or off. Three weeks later, we had 3,000 viewers, and got shut down by our hosting company because we were using too much bandwidth. PodShow came to our rescue and got us back up and running on their servers.
We now have millions of downloads a month. At exactly the 5 month mark, we announced that PodShow Podcast Network had made it possible for us to quit our day jobs and podcast full time.
