    Episode 54 - A Very British Apocalypse

    Episode 54 - A Very British Apocalypse

    This week, Mike and Cav explore the end of the world from a British point of view, what with the world ending and all. We look at what makes a British Apocalypse distinct and different, with Triffids, Zombies, Aliens Invasion, and Killer Geordies.
    Plus out Thimble of Win has to Face the Music after conquests, and investigates some Mould.

    Episode 53 - Newsbelch

    Episode 53 - Newsbelch

    We're back, and this time it's...well, news.
    This week it's all about our take on recent Pop Culture News. We have strange new worlds, the biggest fight between '80s metal legends since David Lee Roth and Vince Neil had a punch up in a Wetherspoons car park, bats leaving the cave, many people realising that this is the way, sandy Al Pacino comparisons, and snide (or should I say Snyd?) cuts. All for your earhole pleasure.

    Bonus Episode: DOOM Eternal Review

    Bonus Episode: DOOM Eternal Review

    This time around we're doing things a little differently, what with one thing and another. Once we've got our systems set up for separate location recording we'll be back on our normal programming.
    Today, this is just Cav on his own, giving his review of DOOM Eternal, which is well worth your time. There's a lot of detail in here, and if you're even considering purchasing the game, you should definitely give this a listen.

    Episode 52 - Guilty Pleasures (a.k.a. Suck My Fuck Actually)

    Episode 52 - Guilty Pleasures (a.k.a. Suck My Fuck Actually)

    This week, we look into the world of Guilty Pleasures. Is there such a thing? What constitutes a guilty pleasure? Is it simply liking cultural artefacts that others don’t, or is it more nuanced that that? What do your favourite geeksplorers feel shame about (answer; not much)?
     
    Plus Cav watches a bunch of movies so you don’t have to, Mike baldly goes, and Chani gets cross about animals:

    Episode 51a (mini episode) - Rise of Skywalker Before and After Reactions

    Episode 51a (mini episode) - Rise of Skywalker Before and After Reactions

    This week two of your favourite swashbuckling geeksplorers present their very brief thoughts on Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker (General Chani was unavailable for this one, doubtless off training her minions in a secret location).
    We'll return with a full reaction episode in a week or so, once we've had time to watch it again and gather our thoughts.

    Episode 51 - Area 51

    Episode 51 - Area 51

    We're baaaaaaaack!
    After a long hiatus, and a slight relocation of TWBG Towers (80m to be precise) we return with a look at the role of Area 51 in popular culture and find... a lot less than we thought we would. Maybe it's a conspiracy. Maybe the government really are hushing everything up. Maybe Naruto running at a secret base is a bloody stupid idea. Who knows? Well, hopefully after listening to this you'll be a little wiser. Or is that what they want you to think...?
     
    All that, plus Chani makes mushrooms when she pees while ferrying a baby, Cav refuses to take his helmet off while making pew pew noises, and Mike answers the question about who watches the Watchmen (apparently it's him).
    Watch the skies people.

Laughingladybird ,

If I make a bad joke do I get geek points?

Listening to this is like listening to a hilarious spoilercast centric geeky version of Still Untitled: The Adam Savage podcast. They took the 'three dudes and a microphone' and used it well. Currently loving it- mostly because they have great taste, but partly because an English dude and two Australians talking about geek history is the podcast I didn't need, but the podcast I deserved. 🤓
