Geek to Geek Podcast

The Geek to Geek Podcast is co-hosted by Beej (@professorbeej) and Void (@grnmushroom), two life-long geeks who have managed to bring their geekery with them into adulthood and still be somewhat functional adults. They love games of all kinds, books, movies, TV, and pretty much everything else, and they want to talk about it all. With you.

Game of Thrones is Back!

In this episode:

  • Beej forgets whether it’s A Song of Ice and Fire or A Song of Fire and Ice. Please accept our sincerest apologies.

 

  • Game of Thrones is back! Season 6 debuted last week, and for the first time (we think) in television history, the adaptation is further along than the source material.

 

  • The edits the showrunners made to the show help viewers invest in the world, and the combination of seasons and characters make the show more palatable than the books may be to readers.
  • We discuss which characters they want to see standing when it’s game over, and aside from Tyrion, there are actually a couple of surprises on what they want to happen and who they want to live/die! Do you agree with us? Let us know!
  • Weekly Geekery
  • Health Hack: Go streaking! Take your normal exercise, dial it down, and do it every single day for a week. This will build your resolve, keep you from getting exhausted, and set up a new habit!

Blizzard Games

In this episode:

  • Blizzard games have been a part of our lives since we were kids. Now, as adults, we are still loving and playing Blizzard games. From the original Warcraft to The Lost Vikings to Overwatch and whatever comes next, we will probably be playing Blizzard games our whole lives.
  • Games like Warcraft got us hooked, Hearthstone being on every device we own keep us connected, and new takes on old genres like Overwatch keep us coming back.
  • Blizzard breaks down existing game genres into their fundamental parts, builds them back up into a new product, and then polishes them until they shine.
  • Weekly Geekery:
  • Health Hack: One day each week, eat no meat at all. It’s easier than it sounds! Check out MeatlessMonday.com for recipes and details on starting it.

BACKLOG

In this episode:

  • We love so much stuff! Honestly, we love pretty much everything! So we need a system to organize it all because our free time is limited.
    • Void has a fantastic queue system that takes the pain away: just pick what’s at the top and hit the ground running.
      • Make a list of all the media you want to consume, and then start working your way down it. (Yes, it’s more complicated than that, but that’s why we talk about it in the show!)
    • Wunderlist works great for organization.
  • Weekly Geekery:
  • Health Hack: Instead of calories, think about much would you would have to work out to burn off that cake?

STAR WARS

In this episode:
