Did you think we were going to let a DC movie come and go without bringing our favorite BoiZ back onto the show? That's right - from Metasquid Studios - James and DJ, our DC Boys, are back on the podcast to talk about the latest offering from Warner Bros and DC, Joker. Coming along for the ride is our favorite actor/writer/director/producer/everything Jason Avalos! We get into spoilers for the movie from the get go so WARNING, if you have yet to see the movie and do not wish to hear what happens then maybe download this one for later! 

Check out DJ and James on their shows Gamesters Pairofdice and Jamesflix, respectively, on the MetaSquid Studios feed on your favorite podcast app!

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.

It's week 6 of the NFL here on the Sportscast as Derek and a sleepy Bobby Bexar go over that questionable MNF game, the undefeated 49ers and those winning Texans. Well, that last one is just for Bobby of course.

This is a very special episode of The Geekdom Fancast, not just because the film we're talking about is one of the best reviewed movies of the year (deservingly so) but also because we were able to chat with the cast! That's right, we were able to watch a special screening of Bong Joon Ho's new masterpiece Parasite! We get into our non-spoilers review of the film and its multilayered laughs and thrills. Then we chat with Song Kang Ho, Park So Dam, and Choi Woo Shik about what they hope audiences take away from the film, what it was like shooting on such elaborate sets, and the experience of working with Bong Joon-Ho!

Warning: the interview contains MAJOR spoilers for the film, so make sure you watch it before listening!

The interview with the cast begins at 27 minutes and 51 seconds (27:51)

Welcome to the Geekdom... Spacecast? This week Derek and Myke tackle two fall, attractive people in space films of the year: Brad Pitt in Ad Astra and Natalie Portman in Lucy in the Sky. For some reason Derek watched the artsy, indie one with Lucy and Myke took on Brad Pitt and a baboon in Ad Astra. There are slight spoilers but nothing to specific.

How does one pop culture podcast cover the Emmy's if one of the hosts wasn't able to watch it? Easy. We invite a guest on who is a delight to talk to regardless of what the subject is, and that guest this episode is our friend from PopPrismPower: Ana Mendoza! Ana reconciles her hate of Game of Thrones with the fact that they took home a big prize, Derek (as the only person who watched the ceremony) talks about the lack of a host and the flow of the show, and Myke finds out just what shows everyone did watch this year.

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.

Ten episodes ago (literally - Episode 151) we were challenged by our friends Jiaming Liou and Albert Patrick to participate in the /Film Summer Movie Wager. Collectively we each made our predictions of what would be the top ten movies, in their exact order, at the domestic box office from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Eventually our friend Tyler McPhail from The Grand Geek Gathering network joined us and we played a game of fantasy movie box office. 

Now all three join Derek and Myke to assess the damage. We all comment on our biggest disappointments, what movies we personally loved regardless, how Pikachu pulled an unfortunate shocker, and how John Wick blasted his way through to the top. 

Catch Albert on his many podcasts at whowhatwhereswhy.com including his show with Jiaming: Spoilers, Pleeze.

Catch Tyler McPhail moderating a panel at a con near you and on his many shows that he hosts and/or produces at thegrandgeekgathering.com!

Now that our time with our favorite Losers seems to be done, we had to bring back our most read, hilarious and insightful friend of the show Dana Keels to talk about our collective return to Derry in Stephen King's IT Chapter 2. Dana takes us through the various changes in the book, for better or for worse, and what his own thoughts about the blockbuster horror sequel. Derek and Myke supplement their own God Hates Geeks written review and expand on how much they loved the performances, directing, while also going into more of their nit picks of the movie. We go into full spoilers off the bat, so if you haven't seen the movies stay away from this episode like a sewer drain on a rainy day.

Now that Labor Day has come and gone it's time to gear up for a new season of non-capes and tights movies and we could think of no one better to join us than past guest, friend of show, and film school alum JL Caraballo. We get into the spattering of movies that he's the most excited for including the new IT that comes out this weekend, Tigers Are Not Afraid, and more! Then Derek and Myke spare JL their own geekery and go over the rest of the movies that they're excited for up until Thanksgiving Day weekend.

If you want to read more of JL, check out his reviews on GodHatesGeeks.com

The Geekdom Gamescast is a monthly video game bonus episode in collaboration with God Hates Geeks hosted by Myke and God Hate's Geek's own Travis Moody. 

The fall season has finally begun and we've got the games to prove it. First we get into all the news coming from this year's Gamescom and PAX, because we live in a world where there's a video game conference almost every other week. We then follow up with an update on Moody's time with Fire Emblem: Three Houses, and Myke's own Blue Lions run since getting the game right after recording the last episode. Then we get on another level, psychically, as we get into Astral Chain and the Astral Plane of Remedy's Control

As of this release, we're two episodes into the second season of AMC's horror anthology show 'The Terror' and we were lucky enough to have the showrunner, Alexander Woo on the pod! We talk to him about how he came to the show, his background in theater and how it led to television, the universal immigration themes of 'Infamy' (the title of this season of the show), and the Chinese horror stories that he was told as a kid.

We then expand on our thoughts of the pilot episode of the show, which we highly recommend you check out!

The Geekdom Gamescast is a monthly video game bonus episode in collaboration with God Hates Geeks hosted by Myke and GHG's own Travis Moody. 

Usually the summer months are a good time to catch up on games we didn't get to play in the winter and spring, but not this year! Between the two of us we played four games that range from 10 - 100 hours! Myke talks about Wolfenstein: Youngblood and Travis weebs out with Judgment and Fire Emblem: Three Houses then we both get into Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order.

Here we are with our SDCC 50th Birthday episode! Derek is joined by our resident foodie-geek Greg Mucino to go over the four day festival of geeks. There's cosplay, new TV shows, off-sites, that Marvel panel, and of course LINES GALORE! There was so much to cover but we tried to get to as much as we could for you all.

Just like the torch was passed from Tony Stark to Peter Parker in Far From Home, we pass our Marvel Movie Guy torch to friend of the pod / one of our favorite guests - Jason Avalos! After a hip movie date with Derek, Jason joins us to go over all our thoughts about Spidey's new adventure! We spoil everything from the get go so make sure you go out and see it! We get into Quentin Beck, the fun of the high school romp, MJs expanded character, and who's on Derek's lawn now!

We're not done with ATX 2019 just quite yet, in face we've kind of saved the best for last: Derek was once again invited to talk to the people behind two great shows - 'Perpetual Grace, LTD' and 'Grown-ish'! I assume there's going to be some Grown-ish spoilers so we time-stamped them for you here:

It's been a week since Derek has made his return from the scorching heat of Austin, Texas where he spent another year mingling with actors, actresses, writers, producers, and TV fans! That's right, another ATX Television Festival has come and gone and as always, Derek was lucky to attend, and spend some time with our first friend of the podcast Dominick Dusseault! Dominick talks about what it was like to work the Fest as a professional photographer, which panels were his favorites to cover, and Derek gets into all the new pilots he saw and which ones he was really excited for!

Myke doesn't know how he waited this long into May - so long that it's June now - to talk about Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, but don't you worry - he does. Well mostly just the Asian movies he's watched lately. Derek has also finally caught up with Barry so we talk about that before we finally get to talking about the big boy of the weekend, Godzilla, as we get into a spoiler review of King of the Monsters.

After eight long seasons Game of Thrones has finally come to an end, and somehow we barely have talked about it on our podcast. Well we end that on this episode where we talk about THE ENTIRE SERIES in an epic review of unprecedented proportions. To help us unravel this epic fantasy tale, Ana Mendoza from the PopPrismPower Podcast, and Song of Ice and Fire book reader, joins us as we get into the divisive final season and series finale as she successfully convinces Myke to read the books. Derek talks about his impressions of his binge of the series, and we all get into what could have happened and how we felt about what did happen.

Dread it. Run from it. 150 episodes came all the same. What better way to celebrate this milestone than a movie 11 years in the making technically, but really something we've kind of been waiting for all of our lives! In order to celebrate with us, and to gush IN FULL SPOILER MODE we have a murderer's row of past heroes: Dana Keels, Eva Ceja, and Travis Moody! WARNING: we get into the movie RIGHT OFF THE BAT - there is no safety here for those of you who haven't seen it! We get into what we liked, what we LOVED, and what we enjoyed. We tried to nitpick but it never quite added up to how much we just wanted to heap praise on this movie. 

 

Follow our lovely guests @evaceja, @hatandwand, and @travmoody!

He compares it to E3, talks about seeing a band play Devil May Cry music, and of course they get into it about all the video game news of April and what they've been playing! They get into Division 2, Devil May Cry, and then close it all off with Mortal Kombat 11!
