Author David Barr Kirtley talks geek culture with guests such as Neil Gaiman (#253), George R. R. Martin (#22), Richard Dawkins (#46), Paul Krugman (#61), Bill Nye (#273), Margaret Atwood (#94), Neil deGrasse Tyson (#32), and Joyce Carol Oates (#202). The A.V. Club calls the show, "An informative and impressively in-depth podcast well worth checking out," and io9 lists it as one of "13 Smart Podcasts That Will Feed Your Hunger for Knowledge and Ideas." NPR's earbuds.fm lists the show as a recommended podcast, and CBC Radio writes, "You may not think a podcast about science fiction and fantasy would be the place to go for political insight, but -- it is. Geek's Guide to the Galaxy manages to be more insightful about politics than many pundits." Help crowdfund us at patreon.com/geeks

Chanced upon this podcast. Love the guests. Big name authors I have never heard interviewed. Hosts are very educated not smooth in delivery. Then I realized they are Geeks! Once you get used to their style, very much appreicated their knowledge and research.

Fantastic
