The crew is back at full strength with a lot to say! But first, we gotta give respect and a rest in peace to Stan Lee.

But, it's a good time, hope you enjoy it!
Hey everyone! Not only are we back this week, but we've got a new pilot/show with another co-host for you all. This one is a slightly different style and pace than our normal fare, so we want to hear your feedback! Finding Five O'Clock is a show where our two co-hosts will pair a drink with an activity for you all to try! Imagine wine or beer pairings, but instead of food, it'll be some sort of activity or nerdy media. Let us know what you think!

We've got another one for everyone! There wasn't a whole lot going on, so we mostly talked about the latest Nintendo Direct.

Hey we're back with another new episode! We kinda got sidetracked with our Star Wars episode, so this one is a bit late, but just as good!

Then some Game Awards, Overwatch, and Capcom? Then loads more!
Hey we saw Star Wars: The Last Jedi and we felt compelled to give you our thoughts! We start the show spoiler free, and then give you a warning when the spoilers start. It's off the cuff and a first take of sorts, but a fun bonus episode to tide you all over!

Splatoon 2 got a big update, which somehow turned into microtransaction talk. Then we talked about Jude Law being in Captain Marvel, and the end of the Universal Dark Universe...which somehow turned into Hollow Man. This episode was a ride, but hey, isn't that always the case?
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! We got into a decent bit, starting with fighting game news, Game Awards nominees, and an upcoming Mario movie. Then we talked about Justice League, the recent Steven Universe episodes, and other upcoming movie news. And we finished up with a revamped final section, focusing more on recommendations than capitalism.
But then we got off track and looked up electronic toilet seats and bidet attachments. This is a high-brow nerd focused podcast for sure.
We talked about a lot this week! We talked about Injustice DLC and an upcoming Niantic Harry Potty game.

We're back! The thirst was high in this week as the hotness on the internet was almost too much for us. We started calmly with some sports game news, but quickly dove into Splatoon, Overwatch, and Deadpool news with expected results.

Also Duck Tales chat. Sure, why not.
We caught up with Brian Wolf about his creative work. He makes board games, comics, and various fun art. We talked about his process, how he got into game making, and what he plans to do in the future. We also went off the rails and got fannish about some fandom favorites. Check it out!
We made it back! With two weeks of stuff, we make it work. We started with Wonder Woman and Steven Universe talk, then jump into teaser trailers. Black Panther, Voltron, The Tony's, and some hints of E3 news. Then Dom got a bad case of hiccups. It was fun, really.

Check it out, gang! To very minimal fanfare, it's our one year anniversary! We celebrated by doing a regular episode and covering the nerdy. We got gaming news, Deadpool cartoon, Sleepy Hollow got canned, and new games. Then, we dive into last week's Steven Universe episodes. It was a full week, and we spoil the whole thing. If you want to avoid them, skip to at 59:35. And as always, it's a great one.
Yeah we earned the explicit tag this week! So we got into some real world issues like politics and Nicki Minaj. We quickly went into understanding the marketing behind Wonder Woman, Star Wars Day, and Free Comic Book Day. Then, because we love Marvel too, we raised concerns about the Inhumans, the Defenders, and got weird about Guardians of the Galaxy 2. We promise we're adults.
So, we kind of started with conversation about roaches, for some reason? So, content warning on that if that suits you. But, we're nerds, so of course we got into some minor Bill Nye chat and other internet jazz. Then we pretty much shot the breeze about Marvel's newest nonsense. But then we talk about Steven Universe fora bit. We were all over the place, but it was fun.
We're back from our little convention break with the weekly updates! Tekko was a great convention, but we still found time to catch the Star Wars and Thor trailers! Additionally, we get hype about Carmen Sandiego, Cable and Deadpool, and wonder what's going on in Dumbledore's head.

We mourned a bit for the last gasps of 2016, Fancon and other conventions, Pittsburgh sports, Hidden Figures, and just some weird things in the nerdy space. Pony Island and Ariana Grande are mentioned in the same episode, and I'm not sure that's ever happened.
It's our holiday episode to end the year right! We're following in the risky tradition of having some drinks with our podcast, as a hopeful treat to the listeners. As well, we answered a bunch of fan questions that went in a bunch of different directions. Tons of Overwatch chat, Pokemon, Sports, Sex, what more could a geek want? Huge thanks to everyone who sent in questions, and we hope to do this more often.
Okay, everyone! We're back from some of the weirdness we had going on, but we're strong as ever!

We're back and talking with Conrad Zimmerman, of the internet and video games! We went over so many things: There was movies and storytelling, then storytelling in games, a shift gears to underrated shows, aspirations and life paths. We also talked about what not to do at energy plants, copyright struggles and optimism.
Also, we mention some election stuff as this was recorded weeks ago. It's around 56 minutes if you're burnt out from all that and lasts about 3-4 minutes.
As well, we talk about some alcholism towards the end, but follow it with a related story to take the edge off.
Definitely explicit language in this one. Last week was a hard one and we needed to vent some. Of course we discuss the election, so if that's been too stressful for you, please skip most of the first segment (go to about 14:50)
But other than that! We talk about SNL, have some long anime talks, talk about Pacific Rim, and the Hamilton Mixtape. We managed to pull some fun into this one, and there's great music as always!
Aw yeah, we're back from vacation. Recorded this past Sunday. We definitely had a good time, laughed and joked, and got a bit...ridiculous and personal. But, DC Movies seem to be getting out of their slump, comics are still weird, Dom's Phone Saga seems to be coming to an end, and representation is staying strong. Good news, right?

What more could you want?
It's our first real episode of Geekly Reveal! It's an addition to what Character Reveal already is, to give you all something a bit general to catch up on things that may or may not be outside of your own wheelhouse.

We got a chance to talk with Austin Carter, one of the artists from the Artist Alley at Colossalcon 2016! Been saving this one for a rainy day and as a live/on-the-road episode, please excuse out sound issues. (It was tough to find a room in a busy convention hall) He does art and fashion and it's pretty cool.
We spoke to our buddy Zora about comics, queer identity, and queer comic! We got some Pittsburgh stuff, video games, publishing, and had a great questions round! It was a fun and long episode - lots to say!
Steph and Dom have had some stressful weeks and needed some time to catch up. As well, we wanted to update you all with what is happening on the show and what is in the pipeline! As well, we discuss the previous week's rough spots and some comments on that. It's a quicker one than normal, but still should be a nice listen.
We talked with The Auracle, aka Bae Grylls, aka Joseph about many things. He's a Renaissance man of sorts, and we spoke about activism, masculinity, sports, Star Wars, graphic novels, and more of our typical nerdy stylings. He's our first guest from the other side of the pond, and we got into a lot! Explicit language warning, but it was a good time.
We talked with our good friend Evin about LARPing, cosplay, conventions, and just got a bit goofy! He's a cool guy that we've known for a bit, so it was a good ol' catch up fest. Explicit language and some mention of alcohol, but it's all in good fun.
