The Toys That Made Us – 096

GEEK THIS! is back from a short hiatus! The Toys That Made us could easily be marketed solely to collectors, but for me, there was a little bit of nostalgia, even with the good amount of toys that I never played with.

Deadpool 2 – 095

Yes, the show is on hiatus for another week or so, but we absolutely had to get together and talk about Deadpool 2! David Hunt and Mike Kostrewa return for the discussion, which has a very brief non-spoiler section before we dive in head-long. And yes, we need to watch it a second time. There was way too much to talk about! We hope you enjoy this bonus episode.

GEEK THIS! will return to regular episodes on June 6th, 2018, so make sure you’re subscribed and you follow us on social media! Continue reading “Deadpool 2 – 095”

Avengers: Infinity War – 094

We re-assembled our personal team of Avengers to talk about Infinity War. It’s a longer episode (with some audio glitches, sorry) featuring David Hunt and Mike Kostrewa back behind the microphones again. We definitely enjoyed the movie and had a great time talking about it. Continue reading “Avengers: Infinity War – 094”
