Trending: This wildlife photographer invented his own devices to capture images of dangerous and elusive animals

This week on the GeekWire radio show and podcast, guest host Monica Guzman fills in for John to help us run down the week’s biggest tech news headlines — including Facebook’s partnership with Skype, President Obama’s Twitter news conference, and the Experience Music Project’s attempt to establish a new identity for itself.

Then we’re joined by Shauna Causey, a Social Media Club Seattle organizer and social media manager for Nordstrom, who helps us make sense of all the changes in the world of social networking lately, including the impact of Google+ on the technology scene.

And in the final segment, we bring back our Name That Tech Tune contest, with a chance to win tickets to the upcoming Startup BBQ in Seattle.

Here’s the MP3 file for this week’s show.
