Episode 150 – August Hangout

In this month’s hangout, we took on the theme of our favorite Geekdoms. What is a geekdom, you say? Well, Rhonda asked the same question and I described it as:

Geekdom: A specific subset of a fandom you enjoy about which you have extensive or more than average knowledge.

So I enjoy young adult literature and Harry Potter is one of my Geekdoms within that fandom. It is a geekdom because I can geek out on all the minor details of the story and the lore, I know and have an opinion on the major arguments between the fans, and I jump at any chance to discuss it.

Watch or listen to the episode to find out mine, Rhonda’s, and Isabela’s top three favorite geekdoms. I’ll give you a hint: some are obvious and others quite surprising. (Rhonda’s last one is my favorite!)

What are some of your favorite geekdoms? Where do you put your most intense geeky energy? Let us know in the comments and we will share your geekdoms during our September hangout!

Until next time, get your geekdom on!

Regina & Rhonda & Isabela

Regina is the founder and lead ambassador of The Geek Embassy. Studying and writing about geeks and geek culture is Regina’s favorite thing to do when she’s not reading student papers, dancing an excessive amount of calories away, or chasing after her daughter. Inclined towards mobile and social gaming online, Regina also loves a good round of 7 Wonders, Qwirkle, Small World, or Lords of Waterdeep. Someday, she hopes to actually take part in a D&D campaign so she can officially “roll” a character and role play her as a devious, highly intelligent mischief maker, which would be nothing like she is in real life.
