Wait a minute–we have a podcast?!? It’s been a while since the Geeks were able to record but there was no stopping us talking about a certain new movie that came out last week. So join the entire gang (and we mean entire gang) for a bonus-sized conversation about everything The Force Awakens! Give us a listen right now or jump after the break to read more!
All geeks love two things: Star Wars and cleverly designed infographics. The folks over at Bloomberg finally put those two things together with Star Wars: The Force Accounted. It’s much cooler than the title suggests. Head over there to see exactly how much time we see the Force being used and by whom and what powers. We get breakdowns of who says MTFBWY and even a detailed description of the methodology which is just as geeky as the rest of the article.

Plus…who stands up on a message board and scream MIDICHLORIANS ala Braveheart?
I guess the folks at the official Star Wars site are a little more generous than us when they put together a list of hot topic in the SW universe.
Check out the full article to see where you stand on some of the most important issues of the day!
Gabbing Geek’s first podcast of 2015 is now live and we FINALLY get to talk about Golden Son, the second book in the Red Rising trilogy. If you’ve read the first book, Red Rising, or don’t care about spoilers for the first book, then you’ll absolutely want to listen to this episode–we don’t spoil anything for book 2. But if you want to participate in our Gabbing Geek Book Club in 4 weeks, be sure to read both Red Rising and Golden Son (they’re page turners, you won’t have any problems, Jenny guarantees it!).
