The world can't keep up with Dan and Andrew as they tear through all things geeky and nerdy.
The Week in Geek: Before getting into individual accomplishments, they discuss the recently released trailer for Doctor Who Series 8! Andrew then discusses his preparation for UnPub in Seattle, while Dan discusses about Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and the Veronica Mars movie.
Boasts of Bethel: In this week's boast, Dan gets psychological and ponders the connection between nerds and ironic/meta-humor and asks whether it's a good thing or not. SPOILER: He has no answers.
Discussion: Inspired by the satirical-cum-blindingly-successful Potato Salad Kickstarter that made the rounds in this week's news cycle, Dan and Andrew examine what, exactly, Kickstarter is, could be, and should be and how it has been a benefit or detriment to geek culture.
Andrew Objects: Hot on the heels of news that Marvel's Thor will now be a woman, Andrew decides to object to...those who object.
Geek Thoughts: Big thanks to Walter Phippeny, Liz Geisser, Jason Morgan, Ruben Hanson-Rojas, and Brittney Farrand for responding to last week's question! Your answers were insightful and fun to talk about. However, we must keep moving forward, so we ask:
What is a nerdy/geeky thing you've been doing recently that you want more people to know about?
