What is a Meetup, Really?

“This looks familiar, vaguely familiar, almost unreal, yet, it’s too soon to feel yet. Close to my soul, and yet so far away. I’m going to go back there someday” – Gonzo, “I’m Going to go Back There Someday” – The Muppet Movie Ever since childhood that song has always resonated with me but I […]


Eff This Week #45: Growing Up Audracious

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 […]


Snowblowers, Wine Coolers and William Shatner

When we say we are the friendliest frakin’ people in scifi we mean it. We are a community of people who respect each other, share with each other and have fun with each other. We are clever, we are occasionally insightful and almost always hi-larious. One perfect example of our friendly hivemind leaping into action […]


2011 Community Meetup: A Short Video

Wonder what the 2011 GWC Community Meetup was all about? Or maybe missing your friends (old and new) from the event? Check out this short video and let us know what you think. Seriously, I’m buried in post-meetup blues. Seeing everyone in person that’s such a part of my life every week virtually makes for […]


GWC Fantasy Sci-fi Interlude: Solid Edition

I’ve been in a GWC fantasy football league for the past two seasons. Fantasy football is a fun way to spend time with the GWC community as well as learn more about players, teams, and football in general than you’ll ever want to learn. The GWC Fantasy Sci-fi League is like that except better. You […]


GWC #263: 2011 Community Meetup Live Audience Podcast

This week we’re joined by the best guest ever: a room full of the GWC community! We introduce our next arc, the idea non-interference (known to Trek fans as the prime directive). And we run down the week in geek with lots and lots of heckling — and maybe a little too much 12-year-old Irish […]


GWC #251: Holiday Special

We take some time this holiday season to remember why we enjoy the GWC community so much. We take some holiday listener calls. And we run down the week in geek, including Fable III wonder and frustration, a Klingon interpretation of the classic Scrooge tale, YoSafBridg’s possible casting as Wonder Woman, and lots more. Special […]


Cleveland GWC Meet-up, October 2010

The fall leaves are full of beautiful color, the highs are in the upper 50s or low 60s, and there is a hint of joyful holiday anticipation in the air. It was the perfect time for a Cleveland GWC Meet-up. GWC meet-ups are some of the most fun times a geek can have outside of […]


20 Year High School Reunions: Did Stargate Get It Right?

The GWC crüe has perfect timing. The current high school arc was spot on for me. Like Chuck last year, this summer I had the opportunity to attend my 20th High School Reunion. It was sort of a pain since Mrs. Shooter and I had to drive so far for a very short weekend, but […]


GWC Community: We Want Your High School Stories!

For the next few weeks please call in with your personal high school stories! Funny, poignant, memorable, ridiculous, whatever your fancy we want to hear it. 214-296-9229. Remember to keep it under 2 minutes!


The Summer Movie Season Isn’t Over Quite Yet

Hello fellow GWCers. (Hey, what the frak do we call ourselves? Coolerheads? SeaChuAud-o-philes? Followers of the Galactic Cooler?) This is my first crack at truly blogging for all of y’all, so be gentle. I’ll start with a little factoid: there are more humans at the end of BSG than there are Vulcans at the end […]


Alpaca-Fleece Hats For Cancer Patients

One alpaca breeding group gathers each year to create fleece hats and socks which they donate to cancer patients. Thanks to this enterprising (if somewhat slow-speaking) iReporter who turned in the story to CNN. Unusual Type of Holiday Generosity [CNN]
