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significantly to Kristin) – does it stand the test of time or collapse under the weight of its daunting length and outdated tropes?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!
Welcome lords and ladies to the grand amphitheater of House Podawan!
It’s pretty shocking we haven’t done a Game of Thrones / Song of Ice and Fire episode yet, right? The show is back for the penultimate season and the books are limbo, so why not do it now? Besides all things GoT and ASoIaF, we also geek out about the new Doctor and drop some withering shade on the horrible new Valerian movie.
It’s another one of our Geek Potpourri episodes where we talk about a whole bunch of things we’re geeking out about, plus any random tangents we may venture down. If you want to hear our thoughts Bomb Pops, an argument Pottermore Sorting, the terribleness of Iron Fist and of course more YARN TALK, then you’ve come to the right place!
Luke vs Vader
Harry vs Voldemort
Batman vs Joker
The Young Podawans vs Their “To Be Read” Piles.
All legendary challenges, but we’re only talking about one of them this week. It’s an update on the unending battle against our teetering book towers and the challenge Kristin laid down at the beginning of the year! It’s all books all the time in this brand new episode!
