Tune in to Tech Guide Episode 185 with special guest Greg Grunberg


Actor and gadget lover Greg Grunberg from Star Wars The Force Awakens and Heroes, is our special guest in Episode 185 of the top-rating Tech Guide podcast, hosted by editor Stephen Fenech.

We ran into Grunberg at the Consumer Electronics Show – he made an appearance at the Sphero stand where they were demonstrating the hugely popular BB8 toy and Force Band.

And he promised to come on the Tech Guide podcast – and he is a man of his word.

In our chat we talk about his pivotal role in Star Wars The Force Awakens, what it was like sitting in an X-Wing, the incredible secrecy of the project, his close friendship with director JJ Abrams along with his upcoming projects and, of course, his love of tech and gadgets.

Also on the show, the new Fitbit activity tracker, Optus offers new options for making cashless payments and the limited edition Queen turntable.
