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.
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!
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.

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!
