13: Goooooaaaallllll!!

This week Geekiana gets a little sporty as we discuss (literal) dreams of football glory, geeky lucha libre mask ideas, Vern Gagne, and promote some of our favorite crafters. Fireworks fly, bronies are celebrated, we tread on the road to CONvergence, and sprinkle some magic pixie dust (or methadone) on the whole thing. Score your latest episode of the Geekiana podcast now!

12: Geekiana SMASH

t’s all Avengers all the time (not really) as the Geekiana Podcast celebrates date night. We geek at length about the bounty of comic book movies available this summer. There’s also a friendly discourse on the subject of filmic violence. And the transitory nature of beauty, again with the transitory nature of beauty—this time through the lens of historical novel Carter Beats the Devil. There’s much fun to be had reminiscing on the good old days when Hulk strode across the cultural landscape to a mournful tune, and the good new days when Hulk SMASH. It’s the Geekiana Podcast: you know you want some!

Music this week by Passage.

11: A Day at the Races

This week we go pyrocasting! Geekiana heads outdoors to sit around a nice fire and talk about nice things like book clubs and art fairs. Jon also insults both the work of David Eddings AND your intelligence. Get in on this. Plus listener mail!

10: Another National Anthem

Geekiana podcast returns for another weekly review. We give out heaps of love to star of stage and screen Victor Garber, lament the struggles of the Minneapolis Public Schools, survive the fury of late spring in Minnesota, and review some urban fantasy. No left, no right, no anything, the Geekiana podcast is only American, and we are unworthy of your love. Get in here and get your geek on. Sic semper tyrannis

9: Aunt Bunny

Weekend warrior Leann survives a brush with gravity, fights through the pain to make it happen at Art-A-Whirl, strides across the free marketplace of ideas with arms akimbo, and survives at least one more hour of Jon’s bullshit.

Jon gets his picture taken with the mayor.

Together they make podcasting magic. Fresh from the Queen Avenue Studios, it’s the Geekiana Podcast. Accept. No. Substitutes!

8: Wild Wedding

It’s Geekiana podcast time! It’s always podcast time somewhere! This (late) week, Leann and Jon recount their exploits at a wedding in the Tropics (Trail), talk the fecundity of growing things, get Sherlocked, and go all misty-eyed over the Ponds.  It’s a nice day for a wild wedding.

This episode is brought to you by Hackenmueller’s Meats. Hackenmueller’s paid no promotional consideration for appearing in this episode description, it’s just that Jon is eating a burger while he writes it up. So I guess it’s just the description. The episode itself is brought to you by homemade compost. Homemade compost!

7: Iconoclash

Join us for another playful romp through Leann’s head. (No really: we launch a new segment on lucid dreaming.) But also we commit sacrilege against a perfectly nice sect of Christianity, and answer listener mail about the pressure of passing (as a geek). Sacred cows make the best late night snacks with the Geekiana Podcast.

Beauty and the B.S.

This week on the Geekiana podcast we talk some serious teevee stuff. We get into Joss Whedon, memorialize the miniseries, toast Babylon Five, and toss in a few shakes of Downton Abbey. Do you know quality when you see it? Or are you willing to put up with a certain amount of B.S. if the setting or premise are nerdy enough?

Positive Thoughts

Leann and Jon venture into the lion’s den of suburban community centers/white power encampments. Then we get geeky about parenting, face our fears, talk about Barbara Ehrenreich, and answer controversial listener mail. (Hint: the answer is NOPE!) This episode is brought to you by the power of positive thinking.

Life Irritates Art

Geekiana the Podcast: where our slogan is life irritates art. In this episode Leann and Jon welcome their listenership among the serial killers stalking Minnesota’s Brainerd Lakes area. They talk being sick, spring break, Leann gets geeky with some documentaries, and books! Dozens of books. Hundreds of books! Specifically Kage Baker’s “Company” series. Attentive listeners can play the Geekiana podcast drinking game and drink every time Jon yawns. (Not because of the books, but because the only time we can record is after the kids have gone to sleep and Jon is old)
