It's the Hailee Steinfeld hour on The Geekdom Fancast! Just like we reviewed two music movies back to back we (accidentally) bundled together two Hailee Steinfeld movies, based on existing multimedia franchises that serve as origin stories. It's quite a doozy and so was one of these movies! In order to get into this youthful double feature, we brought on one of the YOUNGEST guests that the Fancast has ever had - Patrick Rhodes from Marvel-Less Marian!

We first get into Bumblebee, the newest Transformers movie, and maybe the best? We talk about finally nailing some of the Autobot designs, actually wanting to root for the human characters, and being creative about the transformations! It's relatively spoiler free but be ready on that skip forward button just in case.

Next we get into the newest Spidey! Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. How does Derek feel about reviewing an animated movie? You'll find out! We talk about how they nailed Spider-Man better than any of the live action movies, what we thought of the animation, and the idea of what can happen next to Miles. We're ending 2018 with a BANG! and a Thwip!

The Geekdom Sportscast is our spinoff podcast format about fantasy leagues, and pro sports in general! This is the NFL Edition hosted by Derek and Robert.

Usually Derek gives Myke a description to post on here because Myke knows nothing about football, but it's the holidays and we're all busy. Safe to say - Derek and Robert are probably getting their asses kicked in Fantasy, because neither seem that happy on social media. Um. Some teams were eliminated from the playoffs, probably and they're not happy about it. They're just don't ever seem to be happy about football right? Some crazy touchdown probably happened though! Wasn't that nuts? Uh. There was a guy who got injured... right? That's a bummer. But football is still happening! I think. I know the Super Bowl hasn't happened yet so it has to be. So, uh. Woo! Let's go Lakers.

The Geekdom Sportscast is our spinoff podcast format about fantasy leagues, and pro sports in general! This is the NFL Edition hosted by Derek and Robert.

The holiday season bites us in the ass here at the Sportscast as Robert and Derek have to do a lightning round of an episode for Week 14! But they still go over the crazy (and random) performance of Derrick Henry, the "Miracle in Miami", and Robert's Texans being upset by the Colts.

Dec 13, 2018

This episode has been a long time coming for Myke, and thanks to Derek, it's finally happening. We're finally dedicating an entire episode to action movies - specifically the ones of the martial arts variety, and we couldn't think of anyone better to discuss them with than David Vo! David runs Martial Arts Action Cinema a website dedicated to action movie news: 24/7! David and Myke geek out about Jackie Chan, Donnie Yen, Jet Li, and more! Derek gets to talk to someone about Into The Badlands and they all come to blows over the Bourne series.

Check out David's site at MAActioncinema.com

There may not be a Star Wars or a Marvel in sight this upcoming December, but that doesn't mean there aren't good reasons to hit up your local theater. In fact that vacuum seemed to create room for a lot of other movies to take the month! Join us as Sherice comes on to help Derek and Myke go through every weekend in December movie releases! Spoilers: there isn't a lack of The House of Mouse!

With Christmas less than a month away the rest of the fall gaming releases have come and gone. Travis and Myke are joined by James from the 'Gamesters PairofDice (on the Metasquid Studios Feed) to talk about everything from Assassin's Creed Odyssey to the Spider-Man DLC, WWE 2K19, and some Black Ops 4. Then they go over the recent developments in the gaming industry like Bethesda's big blunder Fallout 76, Sony skipping E3 2019, and more. It's an hour of the classic Gamescast you've come to love.

But if you could care less about all that and want to skip to the real meat of the podcast then scrub over to **1 Hour and 12 Minutes** into the podcast for our full spoiler review of Red Dead Redemption 2. James talks about diving back into the west after completing the original Red Dead several times already, Myke discusses the beginnings of the Online Beta, and Moody dives into the morality of Arthur Morgan. It's the geekiest hour of thirty minutes we've ever recorded.

Another Thanksgiving is here, but this one will sadly be marked by a terrible loss. 2018 brings with it the first Thanksgiving that the world will be without Stan Lee. While its hard not to mourn his death, we would be remiss if we did not celebrate his life - especially for someone who has given us so much to be grateful for. In this special episode Derek and Myke enlist the help of many of our previous guests, and one special friend of the pod, in commemorating the life and passing of Stan Lee. Stan, we are so grateful to you for helping to create this community that we feel safe and thrive in. Rest in Peace Stan Lee and Happy Thanksgiving to all! Excelsior! 

Nov 16, 2018

It's another Derek and Myke catch up episode! We had so much to say last week about the movies we've watched that it spilled over to this episode. California's also on fire again, so we definitely can't help but talk about that and then we get into 'A Star Is Born' for the majority of the episode. Derek does talk about seeing "On The Basis of Sex" and Myke talks about "The Haunting of Hill House". Its another classic TGF episode!

Nov 8, 2018

We're just as shocked as you that we're doing a whole episode on this movie, especially since it was our guest, Gio's, idea. What's even weirder is that we talk about sports for a lot of the beginning part of the podcast. Yet its fitting because the band whose biopic we just watched has two songs that are totally synonymous with stadiums and sports. Just like there was more to Queen than 'We Will Rock You' and 'We are the Champions' you'll find out there's more to our tastes than just geek movies, the NBA, and the MLB. We talk about bands, music, biopics, and more!

Your favorite shows might be coming back to TV, or premiering for the first time, and all the year's biggest video games have started to hit shelves, but that didn't stop Derek and Myke from going to the movies - a whole bunch. Don't worry, there's no spoilers for any of them - especially since some of them haven't even come out yet, but we do get into it.

Can we call title this week's episode WTF because that's all we kept thinking! Derek and Robert are back again to go over Week 4 of the NFL season and their dismal fantasy football teams.

Sep 28, 2018

Even if you've been hiding under a rock you know that Lebron James is now playing for the Los Angeles Lakers and that means, among many other things, that the new NBA season is going to get pretty interesting. Because of that, and the fact that they just love this franchise, Travis and Myke decided to go extra hard in the paint for their review of NBA 2K19. Originally their coverage was going to be part of the main Gamescast release this week, but it just ballooned into its own episode.

For more coverage of 2K19 check out more thoughts on GodHatesGeeks.com

It's a Geekdom first, we actually get to talk about an awards show THE DAY AFTER THE AWARDS SHOW and you don't have to wait a whole week to hear about our thoughts of this year's Emmy Awards!
