Modern Geek #19: Listener Calls, Podcast Rig Geeking

In this bonus episode of Modern Geek, we take listener calls, including a question about WiFi slowdowns on the iPhone, a successful Roku-based cutting of the cable TV cord, and an inquiry as to the best camera choice for taking pictures of active children.

Modern Geek #17: 360 Dashboard Update, Boxee, Retro Gaming

We talk about the huge change coming to the Xbox 360 dashboard in the next few weeks. We dissect the addition of live TV via antennae to the Boxee Box. We drool over ThinkGeek’s awesome sub-$100 portable retro gaming rig — and quietly add it to both our Christmas lists. And we discuss a reader’s […]


A Thunderous Return

When it comes to anime, I am more of a mech-style anime viewer. My favorite series is Robotech, followed closely by Starblazers, Voltron, and Transformers. Truth be told,  I was not really a fan of the original Thundercats cartoon that aired in the 1980s — but the newly animated 2011 version of the Thundercats is […]


Eff This Week #7: Generic Drunken Podcast

Yep, it’s that time of week again. The time where we eff. We eff it all up, you know, with Juan live in the studio for one last time this year. Your Eff This Week crew this week: Chuck, Audra, and Juan. Highlights: We’re here. Yeah, you heard me.

Are the Rising Costs of Geek Communications Worth It?

I’m a tech geek. I love my gadgets. But tech comes at a cost, and a recent Modern Geek Podcast on how geeks communicate got me thinking: how much does all this newfangled technology really cost us? For a household of six, my family’s monthly entertainment/communications costs are outrageous (cue the “Get off my lawn!” sound […]


Eff This Week #3: Self Porntraits

Note to Eff This Week newcomers: Be careful clicking links posted in the live ‘cast chat — especially any from Audra. Or Default Prophet. This week’s Eff This Week Crew: Audra, Chuck, and Juan. Highlights: We learn that Juan once dreamed that he was Amy Pond. Audra compares Jason Momoa to Daniel Craig and Hugh […]


Eff This Week #2: (censored) Van Patten

We party’d down this week, so much so that jackass Chuck forgot to start the recording and lost the first 10 minutes of the ‘cast. So if you were listening live, you got the “special edition” version where Chuck shot first. This week’s Eff This Week crew: Chuck, Audra, Juan, and Abigail (whom you might […]

It’s our inaugural live podcast, and what a great time we had. About 40 people joined via UStream and more via Twitter. This week’s Eff This Week crew: Chuck, Audra, and Juan.

WarGames Remake Inches Closer

Collider reported this week that MGM hired Noah Oppenheim to pen the forthcoming WarGames update, with Seth Gordon to direct. Oppenheim is a bit of a question mark as a screenwriter. His IMDb page lists producer credits (Losing It with Jillian, Today, Hardball with Chris Matthews), but no completed screenwriting gigs — though Collider reports […]
