It's catch up time with the hosts. Derek and Myke talk about what they've been up to recently and geek out about Fantasy Leagues, Derek seeing Mission Impossible in 4DX, the Good Place Podcast, Insecure, and a lot more. It's an old fashion Geekdom Fancast episode where we just ramble on like a bunch of nerds - which means its super fun!
Who would have thought that the summer's biggest rom-com would be one of the most anticipated movies for The Geekdom Fancast? Ironically, Derek did and he booked our amazing guest almost four months in advance for this very moment. There's no better way to celebrate the critical and commercial success of Crazy Rich Asians than to listen to us speak with awesome blogger, podcaster, and seven-time (when we recorded this) Crazy Rich Asians watcher Laura Sirikul on the show! Derek listens in as she and Myke squee over the food, the themes while he admires Gemma Chan and Constance Wu (respectfully, from afar). Laura also clues us into the changes between the book and the movie, what future sequels could have in store, and how her interactions with the cast and crew have been like.
Follow Laura on Twitter @lsirikul and find out all the awesome things she's up to!
Mattman and Tommy Two Stars, long time friends of the show, and co-hosts of the wondeful podcast Deep Fried Geeks, join us from Florida to talk about their geek years, and just generally shoot the shit. If you like the episodes with our Burger Lord Greg Mucino, imagine him and Ralph Garman hosting a show - that's the magic of the Deep Fried Geeks. We have food talk, a comprehensive guide to what's good on Netflix, and some pretty good impersonations. It's a classic TGF episode times two!

For the last, but not least time, that we talk about this year's comic con, we give our thoughts on the rest of the convention. If you heard the first part to this episode, you'll know we got our thoughts about all the big news and trailers out of the way, now it's time to really dive into the con itself, and our time OUTSIDE of Hall H. Greg Mucino, our Foodie Geek, and SDCC vet, joins us to talk about the infamous Indigo Ballroom, more TV panels, the biggest surprise of the con and more! This one's for all the SDCC die-hards.
