In case you haven’t seen a single piece of social media content all week then let us be the first to tell you–it’s Back to the Future Day! October 21, 2015 is the actual day Marty McFly visited the future (and not every other day since 2010 thanks to a lame meme generator). In honor of this special day filled with fond memories and NO HOVERBOARDS, our Back to the Future Special covers future predictions, pitches for Back to the Future part 4, and a time-themed trivia contest bound to make people angry! Take a listen to the podcast right now or jump after the break to find out more!
This week on the podcast, the Geeks discussed what is and isn’t a geek property.
Now, I don’t want to cast aspersions over other people’s interests and definitions. I did not think Rainbow Rowell’s Fangirl was a geek book. I wasn’t even convinced the main character was a geek character. A fan? Sure. No question. A geek? I didn’t think so. Why? I’ll expand on this a bit after the cut.
Our latest episode of the Gabbing Geek podcast has MCU movie news, Ready Player One movie news, the Fangirl Geek Book Club, and a riveting discussion on what makes geek content in the first place. And Watson introduces what might be the world’s worst convention ever. You can give the episode a listen right now or jump after the break to read more!
This week on the podcast, Watson didn’t do the assigned reading. If he did that in my class, we’d move on without him and he’d fail another of life’s little tests.
Man, that was really, really mean.
Let’s talk about aliens.
Gabbing Geek episode 55 is not what you’d expect–if you were expecting the promised Geek Book Club about Fangirl. That has been unexpectedly delayed to episode 56 and you’ll find out exactly why. We also talk about Lego Dimensions, Gotham, the Martian (movie version!), and play an alien trivia game. Give the episode a listen right now or jump after the break to find out more!
This week on the podcast, there was no Jenny. That means a lot of boring stuff about box office numbers that haven’t happened yet.
I mean, yeah, there was some Mars talk that proves Watson is as bad at counting as Jenny, but at least they didn’t get into some really complicated numbers over how many rocks from the Sun Mars happens to be when Mars has two moons of its own to screw with his totals even more.
Then there was a List O’Truth for movie bad guys…
Watson and Ryan hold down the fort for Episode 54 of the Gabbing Geek podcast while Jenny recovers from Tiredofputtingupwithalltheircrapitis. It’s going around. So the Y chromosomes talk about Star Wars, Hunger Games, Mars, Alexander Hamilton, movie villains, and the summer of 2016 in movies. You should listen to it right the heck now, or jump after the break to read even more!
This week on the podcast, there was Lego Talk, Marvel/Netflix talk, Choose Someone’s Own Adventure Talk that could have made the podcast suitable only for mature listeners despite the fact only truly immature listeners would enjoy that portion but probably came from Watson watching Anchorman recently, and then there was a sword spelling bee.
This led me to wonder…why do so many swords have names?
Gabbing Geek 53: Slice And Dice, has 100% more female whale genitalia than you were expecting! First we cover Lego Dimensions and some Marvel TV news before bringing you an epic, impromptu space adventure featuring things about whales you never knew you always wanted to hear. Finally, we wrap things up with an upgraded spelling test to see who knows their fictional swords! You can listen to the episode right now or jump after the break to read more!
This week on the podcast, there was a lot of talk about box office stuff here and abroad.
Then there was a trivia game about addresses that led me to think Watson and I watched the same cartoons.
But in the middle of that was a Geek Mail from a friend of Watson’s thanking the show and the site for all the recommendations he’s gotten, so I’m gonna do something like that.
