We made it folks – 2017 is finally over and while it was a mess of a year, there were some real bright spots in Geek Media. Genre entertainment continues to deliver amazing content even in this darkest of timelines, so we’re here to tell you what we loved most in 2017 and recap of our year long reading challenge.
This is not going to go the way you think.
Luke wasn’t kidding.
Probably the most talked about and divisive Star Wars film yet – this week we tackle The Last Jedi. We’re both very conflicted about this film and there’s nothing like geeky podcast therapy to grapple with our feelings. Might as well give our Force Awakens episode a listen as well, just to see how much a difference two years and two completely different movies makes.
We’re in a bit of scheduling limbo with Star Wars coming out today, so we’re rolling with another of our (in)famous Geek Potpourri episodes! Hear us chat about all the books, movies, television and games we’ve been geeking out about the last few weeks! And if that’s not enough, we go on epic tangents about reusable shopping bags and the hot singles of Stardew Valley!
The Young Podawans’ Harry Potter vs Dark Tower Reading Challenge continues! This week we chat about Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire! For the sake of continuity (and because they are awesome) – be sure to check out the HP & DT Books 1-3 episode and the Wizard & Glass episode before venturing further!
THIS ONE GOES TO ELEVEN
We’re back with another episode in our Harry Potter vs Dark Tower Reading Challenge! This time it’s a special edition wherein we discuss Wizard and Glass, the big tragic romance flashback of the Dark Tower series. This was one of Brian’s favorite books growing up (and he hyped it pretty significantly to Kristin) – does it stand the test of time or collapse under the weight of its daunting length and outdated tropes? Listen and find out!
Damn good podcast!
