We're all geeky about something.

In this podcast, I interview geeky people about geeky things. The goal is to focus on the culture of geek media (e.g., comics, television shows, movies, gaming, online media, science, etc.), enjoying our obsessions while still managing to look at them through a critical lens. Listen as we talk about why people do what they do and how they got where they are.

And now it's time to g33k out.

    Episode 49: Another Well Kept Secret Exposed

    Episode 49: Another Well Kept Secret Exposed

    I first was introduced to the artwork of the artist known as Another Well Kept Secret thanks to Tumblr and Sherlock. Her artwork shows a stylized humanity with very animated features - and she has a romantic flair that shows that love is indeed at the heart of everything she does.

    Her real name is Kelley and she's from Tennessee. She's been on my list to interview for a while, but got bumped up partially because she's been upping her commissions to help offset the current economic downturn the virus has caused so many. We talk about her art, her being open about her asexuality, and her interest in Sherlock Holmes and Good Omens.

    Episode 48: Alex De Vore is a Fibber

    Episode 48: Alex De Vore is a Fibber

    Alex DeVore is a culture editor for the Santa Fe Reporter. Additionally, Alex is the guitarist for the punk band Fibber: he's played music for over 20 years, but Fibber is a relatively new creation. We talk about his writing, why he plays (and plays punk specifically), and gaming as a medium and art form.

    Episode 47: Sav Rodgers Chases 'Chasing Amy'

    Episode 47: Sav Rodgers Chases 'Chasing Amy'

    While living in Kansas City, I volunteered with the all-volunteer performing arts magazine KC Stage. We covered not only theatre, but any of the performing arts -- which included the surprisingly strong independent film scene (partially thanks to the, and faculty member Kevin Wilmott).

    Additionally, I also (unsurprisingly) participated in a lot of geeky and sci fi activities and helped out with the all-volunteer website SciFi4Me.

    So, when I heard Kansas City native Sav Rodgers had made a documentary in connection to a TED Talk about the movie Chasing Amy, I was understandably confused as to whether I knew him thanks to KC Stage or SciFi4Me. The thing is: I don't think we ever actually met in person prior to this interview.

    I interview him about his TED Talk, being a queer filmmaker, and connecting to Kevin Smith. Head's up: there is some minor cursing in this episode.

    Episode 45: Geek Girls Part 3 - Grace (aka Cerberusia)

    Episode 45: Geek Girls Part 3 - Grace (aka Cerberusia)

    This is the third episode in my ongoing series where I interview women in the geek community about what their experiences were like, and their history as a fangirl.

    Cerberusia is one of the women I had originally interviewed back in 2014, when I was visiting London. I had been working on an article on fan fiction for the company I was interning at, and had reached out to Tumblr to find people outside of my fandom areas to quote. Since she was based in the UK (Oxford, to be precise), I asked if she would be interested in a further interview.

    Obviously, time has passed since that interview, and so when I decided to get back to doing these, we agreed to redo the interview. We have a great discussion about what it means to be a geek, how she fangirls, and the future of geek culture.

    Episode 44: Writers & Illustrators of the Future Awards 2019

    Episode 44: Writers & Illustrators of the Future Awards 2019

    I've attended the Writers & Illustrators of the Future Awards several times now. In fact, Episode 22 of this podcast was covering the 2017 ceremony. Attending this awards ceremony is always fun, and this year was no different. This was the 35th annual awards ceremony, and the them was Retro Robotics. 

    The keynote was a 'Science Fiction 101' by journalist Ed Hulse. Illustrator Bob Eggleton was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award, who is also the artist of this year's anthology. 

    Andrew Dykstal took home the Grand Prize Writer Award, and Aliya Chen took home the Grand Prize Illustrator Award. Meanwhile, Alice Wang, who won the fourth quarter illustrator award, became the youngest winner to enter and win. Finally, one of the winners, Preston Dennett, submitted 47 times prior to winning this year, earning 12 honorable mentions over the years. 

    While as with all red carpets my interviews here are brief, I did manage to snag contact information for a couple of the people I talked to in the hopes of getting longer interviews with them, as I did with Kevin J. Anderson and Nancy Kress last year. I also have some excerpts from the ceremony itself.
