Geekspeak Season 15, Episode 3: The Lemony, Limeiny Taste of Science

Podcast cover
Read more
This week on Geekspeak, we welcome Phil Edwards, noted practitioner of fake science at the Fake Science blog, on to chat about his new book, Fake Science 101. You may be noticing a pattern here.

But that's not all, dear listener! We also talk about the legal ramifications of cell phone tracking - should it be protected by the Fourth Amendment? We also then sort of talk about whether Facebook Likes should be considered protected speech but really instead we decide to talk about David Cronenberg's mess-talking about superhero films.

So really, it's a pretty full and hearty show, suitable for any meal in the day. Download it, you might (not) learn something.

Geekspeak Supplemental #18: The Knight Also Rises

Podcast cover
Read more
Geekspeak continues its summer tradition of not doing actual shows but instead having lengthy, pseudo-intellectual conversations about superhero movies this week with a show devoted to the capper for this summer's trilogy of comic book shenanigans, The Dark Knight Rises. Bryan, Brian, and the returning Drew attempt to answer the big questions: did Nolan and co. create a worthy followup to an acclaimed series of films? What are the big themes and ideas? What is the enduring legacy of Nolan's work? And what the devil is Bane saying? The answers you seek may be found by clicking here and then listening to what you download. Also, it goes without saying, but: spoilers ahead, dudes.

Geekspeak Supplemental #17: Thankless, Spandex-Clad Tasks

Podcast cover
Read more
Just like Sony decided to revisit the idea of Spider-Man again (to keep Marvel from getting it back, mostly) we've decided to revisit the idea of just having Bryan sit down with Brian Swafford and talk about the latest comicky-book movies. So here's an hour of the two Bryan/Brians talking about the unenviable challenge of trying to live up to some of the best superhero movies with a reboot nobody really asked for. Did the actors and filmmakers live up to the insurmountable challenge or did they fall short? Will it make you forget all about Sam Raimi? You'll just have to listen and find out.

Korra-nt Affairs, Episode 1: "The Aftermath"

Podcast cover
Read more
This summer, Nickelodeon has been airing probably one of the finest animated programs in years in The Legend of Korra, a worthy follow-up to the beloved classic Avatar: The Last Airbender with a cast of amazingly-realized characters, thought-provoking story, and gorgeous cinematography. So what to do when faced with a show of such quality? I'm not sure but it's probably not what Bryan Carr, Steve Watts, and Nick Hurwitch did in this, the first episode of the new Geekspeak summer series "Korra-nt Affairs". Every week, join these three knuckleheads as they dissect the show, bringing you theories, commentary, and more. This week, the boys talk about "Aftermath", the seventh episode of the first season and what it means for the identity of mysterious Big Bad Amon, the romantic implications our heroine will have to deal with, and also how awesome it was when those guys fought those guys. Download the first episode by clicking here.

Geekspeak Supplemental #16: We'll Damn Sure Avenge It

Podcast cover

 This week, long-time friend of Geekspeak Brian Swafford stops by to chat with Bryan about Marvel's superhero magnum opus The Avengers, which Bryan already reviewed for some Web site if you want to read that while you listen. Find out if this movie was worth the time, money, and...you know what? No pretense. We basically spend 90 minutes  talking about how awesome it was and why it was so awesome. So if you like talking about awesome things, you'll like this. But make sure you only listen AFTER you've seen the movie because SPOILERS ARE PLENTIFUL AND WE BASICALLY RUIN MOST OF THE MOVIE. With that caveat out of the way, hear two guys take an overly academic approach to a movie about dudes in tights by clicking here.
