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.
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!
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significantly to Kristin) – does it stand the test of time or collapse under the weight of its daunting length and outdated tropes?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!
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.
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!
Hey everyone! It’s another super special edition of the Young Podawan’s Book Club! This week we’re chatting about Fran Wilde’s UPDRAFT, a decidedly less depressing book than the ones we’ve read in the past. Fantastic battles, inventive world-building, INVISIBLE FLYING SQUID THINGS – we talk about them all! So strap on your wings and take flight with us in this soaring new episode.
Well friends, we have a whole bunch of great stuff coming up in future episodes, but this week we’re serving up a lovely smorgasbord of topics to chat about. Climate change funding might on the chopping block, but the Glaciers of Men are still floating along and going strong! Batman! Belle! Bemoaning bad Woooos! This episode has it all!
We’re back with an all-new Young Podawans Bookclub episode! This week we’re chatting about THE FIFTH SEASON by N.K. Jemisin, the next in our series of Super Depressing Reads. But seriously, this was a great book and not only will you hear our thoughts on the plot and the characters, but our contempt for cold brew coffee and watermelon beer. Yep.
Great Scott! It’s another edition of our Geek 101 series! This week we’re talking about the various tropes and trends in Time Travel stories snd when you’re done listening, you can pretend you’re a time travel too by rewinding and listening again!
