Back from the Dead

AMC’s The Walking Dead wrapped up this week, so I decided to give a brief overview of the season, share my opinions about the characters that I found interesting, and give my overall opinion of the most recent season. I also talk about an upcoming interview with writer Ben Avery, who hosts the Strangers and Aliens podcast, as well as an idea that I have that involves YOU! More from this episode: Cosplay Piano – The Walking Dead What were your thoughts of The Walking Dead? Would you participate in the new listener interaction segment?

Coming Up: Interview w/ Ben Avery

I recently got in contact with comic book writer and podcaster Ben Avery (TimeFlys, George R.R. Martin’s The Hedge Knight) about being on the show soon. Although we’ve only sent a couple of short emails back and forth, he seems genuinely excited to be interviewed. The only problem is, I’m worried I won’t ask the right questions in my first interview! That’s where you, the listener, come in. If you’re a fan of Ben’s work or the podcast (or both) drop a question in the comments below, on the Facebook page, or hit me up on Twitter. You can find out more about Ben at

The Walking Dead + Cosplay + Piano?

Now, as a geek, it is obvious that cosplay is cool to me. I’ve never done it, but I have great respect for those who have. While checking my YouTube stream yesterday I came across a new show that debut on Stan Lee’s World of Heroes YouTube channel called Cosplay Piano. My initial thought was “What is this?” Moments later, though, I was blown away as a girl re-enacts some scenes from the first episode of AMC’s The Walking Dead and played Bear McCreary’s amazing score from the show. Not getting the picture yet? Just watch this video. It deserves way more views than it has.

Hangout – The Walking Dead

I recently had a chance to sit down with a few friends via Google+ Hangouts. We started off talking about The Walking Dead (both the comic series and the hit TV show) and moved into a little bit of super hero talk. This is something I plan on doing at least once a month, so if you’re interested in being part of the next Hangout, connect with me and I’ll be sure to add you. Hope you enjoy this video.

Real Talk: Formats and Futures

Considering I’m using a new app to record the podcast now, I decided to try it out in this episode, where I talk about some of the “behind-the-scenes” of Geek This! Podcast. I wrote a blog post on everything that I say in the show, so if you want to read it, it’s the “Final Thoughts on Improvement” post from a few days ago. (Just in case you want to follow along). As always, leave your comments below or over on the Facebook page. You can even hit me up on Twitter if you’d like a more immediate response. I’m totally

Final Days: Amazing Spider-Man

“The best laid plans of mice and men often go astray.” Originally fellow geek, Marvel-ite, and Geek This! listener, David Hunt, was going to join me to discuss the last issues of The Amazing Spider-Man and the debut issue of Superior Spider-Man. Due to my lack of Skype-recording know-how, we talked for nearly an hour and a half, but nothing was ever recorded. I’ve decided that instead of recording an episode I would give my thoughts right here in blog form. To back up just a bit, I have to admit that it wasn’t until the summer of 2012 that
