relationships

Relationships Those we love, those we wish for, and those we mourn. For our February hangout, we discuss relationships. We talk about canon couples: those fictional couples who set the bar for love and romantic gestures. But we’ve talked about those geeky relationship moments before so to spice this up we threw in our favorite doomed couples and our favorite “ships” or relationships we wish for, AKA “fanon.” We’ve got some crazy matches in store for you and some sad couples who either had tragic ends or tragically ended their shows because they ended up together. (Writers: don’t kill the sexual tension! It really ends things!)Read More →

july

Greetings, Geeks! We had a great hangout for July! New ambassadors Julie and Dante joined me and Rhonda to talk about how our experience and enjoyment of music has changed throughout our lives. We start with our first memories of seeking out music on our own, venture into junior high favorites, and first crushes. From there, we linger a bit too long perhaps in high school and how music first started to truly impact our identities. Looking at post-college time to the present brought us almost full circle in our musical biographies. (Yes, we did discuss the Hamilton soundtrack.) I was delighted to finally understandRead More →

Here is our latest hangout as a podcast episode. Rhonda, Ryan, Isabela, and I had a great time chatting about the launch of The Geek Embassy, our adventures at Emerald City Comicon, the season finale of The Walking Dead, and some of the issues with Superman vs Batman.
