Modern Geek is going live! As the meetup approaches, we talk about the alterations to the recent schedule in preparation for the GWC meetup, and lay out the subject of our upcoming roundtable discussion.
We blast into 2013 with some nooooooos! and enjoy some classic GWC banter. And we run down the Week in Geek, including newly revealed details about Gates McFadden’s Season 2 departure from Next Gen (it had to do with sexism, despite the gender equality Beverly insists upon to Soren of the sack-cloth); the UK’s X-rating of the original […]
We kick off 2012’s penultimate podcast by discussing 2005 movie The Island — wait, wut? Yes, The Island. After seven years of GWC-style analysis and geeky discussion, returning to this flawed-but-likable movie made us realize how much the ‘cast has transformed the way we understand and appreciate art. Plus, we run down the Week in Geek, boo Blastr’s troll-baiting “Worst Movies […]
In this penultimate GWC Christmas episode, we re-think everything that makes our holidays what they are. We re-cast and reboot some of our favorite Christmas movies (read: Seth Rogen and Amy Poehler as the new Griswolds), remake some of our favorite Christmas songs (Swedish EDM, anyone?), and re-think some of our hallowed Christmas traditions. Also, […]
This week we Eff on a temporary YouTube channel since UStream took a big UDump. And in “guess-which-is-true” trivia, we dig into the weirdest parts of Audra’s childhood, including her crush on pre-scary Kirk Cameron, the first rap she ever learned and performed at age eight — with the lyrics “lookin’ at the girl on […]
We kick off our “B” Movie arc with the hilariously cheesy, sometimes campy, and all-around fun 1985 sci-fi action flick Trancers. We revel in laughter over the movie’s halfhearted future-car, zombie cross-dressing stunt doubles, the gunning-down of a possessed mall Santa, the young Helen Hunt’s portrayal of a woman unfazed when her boyfriend’s body is […]
During the GWC Meetup we took a group of GWCers to see the newly-released John Carter movie, then hit a local bar for beers, snacks, and some podcasting — which you can hear as a segment in this week’s cast. Also, we run down the week in geek, including discussion of the awesome leaked BSG […]
We’re joined by a couple of Eureka fans who skipped dinner at the 2012 GWC International Meetup to talk Eureka. (They’re big fans, like us, yo!) We run down some of our favorite moments, favorite characters, and favorite storylines. Note: We talk full season 4 in this episode, so if you’re watching for the first […]
