When we initially invited Dana Keels to be on our podcast for his first solo guest episode, we figured we would talk to him about movies in general - but since he's one of the biggest Doctor Strange fans we know, we had to talk about the latest entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We ended up doing a full on review of Marvel's 'Doctor Strange', and Dana spits some knowledge about how the film compares to its comic book source material.

Then, being the nerds we are, we go into superhero movies in general. How do we feel about the MCU now? What about the DCCU? 

Lastly, Dana pitches his awesome idea for a Guardians of the Galaxy / Thor -esque movie that DC can make from their properties. It's a return to geek form from us.

How many time have you said this in your life, "you haven't seen [insert whatever classic movie here]"? Well it turns out past guest, and friend of the show, Gabe hears it almost every time he hangs out with his friends. So much so that they had to make a podcast about it. Enter Jamesflix. Gabe, DJ (from the GREAT 'Gamesters Pair of Dice' podcast) and the titular James join us on the show to talk about all the movies we've missed in our lives, the overrated 'classics' and their show - Jamesflix! Check out Jamesflix, Gamesters Pair of Dice, and Comics Booze N' Profanity through iTunes on your favorite podcast app!

If you missed our crossover with God Hates Geeks earlier this week, here it is - just in time for episode 3 of 'The Walking Dead'. On this episode, Travis Moody and Richard Zom join us as we talk to Karl Makinen, or for anyone caught up with the show - Richard from the Kingdom! Karl talks with us about getting his start in acting, his thoughts on the episode, and what it was like being on set! SPOILERS for up to episode 2 of the Walking Dead! 

Also, if you missed this episode, you must not be subscribed to the GodHatesGeeks podcast feed! Find it on whatever podcast app you use - almost every episode is produced and edited by Myke and frequently co-stars Myke and Derek!

Friend, comedienne, writer, and fellow geek, Eva Ceja joins us for another fun conversation about being a working creator and performer. We get into it about Second City, working on a network show, learning the heroes journey through Dan Harmon, with a whole lotta silliness in between. Eva's one of our funniest friends, and we're sure you'll have as much of a blast listening to her riff as we had riffing with her! 

Oct 6, 2016

This is the kind of episode that we imagined The Geekdom Fancast to be from the jump - a conversation with a friend who is doing creative things that slowly segue's into a nerdy conversation about anything and everything. This week it's Robert Bexar II turn to join us IN PERSON to talk about his short film, turned pilot, 'Geek Haven'. He discusses the inspiration for the comedy, his process, and then basically about everything that he loves. Don't worry, we love it too. From comic book heroes to sitcoms of yesteryear, we had a blast just old fashion nerding out - and you will too!

Unofficial third and fourth chairs, Greg and Sherice, join us to talk about this year's Emmy Awards! We celebrate all of the surprise, first time winners. We get into the difference in the voting procedure for this year's awards. Observations are had, and side-eyed judgments are made. Also, Derek goes on one of his longest rants in podcast history. 

Sep 15, 2016

You know if Sherice is on the show, we're talking movies. After the disappointing summer season, we're looking forward to what we'll be catching up on in theaters for the rest of the year. We're hoping for the 'Arrival' of some surprise Oscar-baited 'Gold', but there might be that 'Rogue One' that sweeps everyone off their feet. And other such movie puns. 

It's our yearly comprehensive list of EVERYTHING coming out for the rest of the year. What are YOU most excited for?

Since the only real time you got to meet our friend Tyler was on a crossover episode, we decided to spend a whole hour talking about him, his geek history, and his opinion about this year's movies and much more! If you haven't already, check out Tyler's network The Grand Geek Gathering at TheGrandGeekGathering.com. 

GGG already has 7 different podcasts covering a WIDE variety of fun topics including craft beer, anime, and video games. If you can't find something for you on GGG, well then you haven't really looked yet!

After collecting our thoughts for the last few weeks (and after Myke successfully survived a fiery hell and turned 30) we finally had the chance to sit down and really get into our San Diego Comic-Con 2016 experience. Dominick, our good friend from the Great White North, and Greg joined us to talk about the highs and lows of this year's SDCC. This is for the hardcore Comic-Con go-er, or the newb that wants to be really prepared for next year. We go in deep!

Jul 20, 2016

Since 2016's Nerd Superbowl is almost here, we had to get together with Travis Moody and Dana Keels for a God Hates Geeks crossover! We dive into everything San Diego Comic-Con. From the panels we're excited about to what's happening outside the convention floor, we've got it all! 

Check out more of our coverage, as well as our other GHG friends, at GodHatesGeeks.com!

Our great friend Greg Mucino returns to the podcast in our now yearly summer episode all about burgers and summertime TV! Greg brings in his Foodcast to the Fancast to talk about this year's Burger Week at the Oinkster in Eagle Rock, CA -- practically a world famous burger joint at this point! Then, because we're still The Geekdom Fancast, we talk about what we've been thinking about this year's summer TV offerings.

Episode 64 - Gaga for Ginger Gonzaga

Just in time for the debut of her new show 'Wrecked', the hilarious and talented Ginger Gonzaga joins us on this very special episode of the podcast! She talks to us about her many awesome roles on shows like 'Mixology' and 'Togetherness'. She also tells us about some fun pranks she did as a kid, and how she got into comedy. We even geeked out about what nerd TV and film she liked, and also got into the fact that it's weird that the Starbucks logo is a mermaid "presenting" herself. It's a fun and insightful conversation and it was one of the highlights of doing this podcast to have her on!

Watched 'Wrecked' on TBS every Tuesday at 10 p.m.!

Another year has gone by, which means Derek has made his pilgrimage once again to the ATX Television Festival in Austin, and this time he made sure to record his thoughts from Texas with the first friend of our podcast -- Dominick Dusseault! They break down the highs and lows of this year's ATX experience, including getting burgers with donuts for buns (yeah, I know --- what?!). Check out pics from the fest @geekdomfancast on Instagram!

It's that time of year! Well, technically it always is. But the time of year we're talking about this week is SUMM-AH! We brought on your favorite Traveling Nerd and the woman who will have you in pieces -- Lance and Sherice (!!!) to run down the list of ALL the big movies coming out this summer and our thoughts about them (if you listen closely enough, you'll even get some insider info!). So stop reading this really terribly written shownote page.. thing-y and give it a play! *Please note that as we recorded this episode we didn't know Robert Downey, Jr signed on to co-star in Spiderman: Homecoming and did not see the "Bad Moms" trailer. You'll get what I'm saying when you listen.

This week's episode we deep dive into this year's WonderCon at the LA Convention Center. Comic Con's younger cousin isn't quite as big, but it still managed to have enough content for TGF show family member, Greg Mucino, to be busy (and not be a foodie) for three straight days! We go through all the panels we (mostly Derek) were able to stay awake through and compare them to Con's past, present, and future.

Yes, it's already here. Festival season 2016 starts with Paleyfest! With it brings two of our favorite guests - Dominick and Greg join Myke and Derek to talk about this year's big TV celebration! How did it hold up? Find out! Editor's (Myke) Note: SO sorry about the quality. I spent a lot of time hooking up all our fancy equipment only to accidentally record everything off of the laptop mic. On the bright side... it sounds like a "vintage" episode of The Geekdom Fancast! I'll make it up to you in love and kisses later.

We've had a week to mull over our thoughts on probably the most controversial Academy Awards to date. Since there was a lot of heat coming into this year's Oscars - we decided to bring in our coolest guests...

This week life has tried to put us down, but like Wade Wilson we're rising from the ashes to bring you a classic TGF episode. The only thing we both really got to bring you is Deadpool - so we're going to bring it to you HARD. We also just have a casual catch up chat about what we've been up to lately and a few shows we've been watching.

This week we (finally) countdown our favorite movies of last year, and we're looking forward to this year. And yes, we know we've already talked a lot of Star Wars, Mad Max, etc - but we go through all the movies we haven't gotten to talk about on the podcast.

Our first episode of 2016. Don't worry, the obligatory "Best of 2015" episodes will be coming. We're working on getting our favorite guests on the show for those big ones, but on this "hosts only" episode we'll be going over some of the fun pop culture events that we went to and our thoughts on the SAG Award and Golden Globe nominations right before we get into award season.
