    Welcome To My World Episode 26 - Summer Blockbusters of the 80s!

    Welcome To My World Episode 26 - Summer Blockbusters of the 80s!

    We're back with another longer than usual mini, and this month due to the return to lockdown in Melbourne and the reduction of all things entertainment worldwide due to the pandemic, we fondly look back at a time when we were allowed to go out and have fun, like going to the movies, with a retrospective on the summer blockbuster films of the 1980s.

    Episode 110 - Streamers In Lockdown!

    Episode 110 - Streamers In Lockdown!

    It's been a few weeks since we've caught up, so we start the show with a brief catch-up on what's been going on, including the announced return to lockdown in Melbourne, then after a very short chat about gaming we jump into all the TV and movies that are getting a run on the various streaming services, seeing as there really isn't that much else to do.
    Joe really enjoyed "Hamilton" on Disney+, but doesn't really get why they made it in the first place, Mitch finishes "Ozark" and learns about Life Drawing, Joe's kids love "Titan Games" and "Floor is Lava", but can't understand why they swear so much on "Broken Skull Challenge", and cooking gets creative in "Crazy Delicious".
    Then in movies Joe feels sad thinking about all the actors from "The Blues Brothers" who aren't with us anymore, gets 90's nostalgia in "Go" and "Grosse Pointe Blank", and Mitch introduces his kids to anime.

    On the show this month we discuss venturing out into the real world again now the lockdown laws are easing, as well as Joe finally finding good pizza in Launceston.
    In gaming we look at "Minecraft Dungeons" and "Unravel", as well as the new iso-friendly challenges on "Pokemon Go", and then go streaming crazy with the new Netflix series "The Big Flower Fight", crazy brits in Lycra on "The Almost Impossible Gameshow", money laundering in "Ozark", and teen superheroes on the DC Streaming "Star Girl".
    We then talk movies with "The Lovebirds" on Netflix, Pixar's latest "Onward" on Disney+, and Mitch not really being the target audience for "Faster Colors".

    Welcome To My World Episode 24 - Isolation with The Goodies!

    It what turned out to be a much longer than usual mini, this month we got together via Skype again to re-watch some classic episodes of The Goodies and remembered just how talented, and maybe just a little bit racist, they were.
    We also discuss life in lockdown, binge watching "Tiger King" on Netflix, a new webshow called "Cabin Fever", Elton John's strange performance on the "One World Together at Home Concert", and how some live TV shows are adapting to the current situation.

Geeks for the ages

Mitch and Joe share a great perspective on all things Geek. Great humour and act like an old married couple with their witty banter. The force is strong with these geeks.

Geeks on target

Found this podcast via a couple of links and thought I'd give it a go and I'm hooked. These guys seem to know what sort of things I'm interested in. As a previous reviewer stated, the first couple of episodes were a bit hard to hear but they've improved the audio quality considerably.

If you're interested in comics, games, movies or anything really pop culture these guys not only talk in depth and with research, but they make it funny and worth listening to. Definitely worth a listen!

Awesome start!

Fresh and interesting take on iconic items of geek culture! Gaming, comics and music are given the hosts Joe and Mitch's unique blend of humor, informed facts and a solid grounding of what it was like to grow up through the 80's.

Audio quality has picked up dramatically in episode 4. Very much looking forward to hearing what the guys do with this fledgling podcast!
