    We are back with another Geektown Radio podcast, and I'm joined by Darryl Of HollywoodNorthNews.net to chat through our week in tv, film & gaming, along with all the weekly tv news, renewals and cancellations.

    We begin by reviewing the last 7 days in tv, film and gaming. Darryl has been focusing on streaming films, so brings us a set of reviews. First up, the French Netflix movie 'How I Became A Superhero', followed by 'Blood Red Sky', also on Netflix, and the film 'Escape Room' over on Amazon Prime Video. He also reviews all three films in the 'Fear Street Trilogy', the horror movies which Netflix have been advertising everywhere! Meanwhile, I review Kevin Smith's (somewhat controversial) ‘Masters Of The Universe: Revelation' on Netflix, the opening of 'War Of The Worlds' Season 2, and the finale of 'Manifest' Season 3.

    In the TV news, we run through the various renewals, cancellations and pickups, which includes a list of all the shows paused by COVID this week, and the possible return of 'Manifest'.

    Geektown Behind The Scenes Podcast 49: 'Sweet Tooth' Composer Jeff Grace Interview

    Geektown Behind The Scenes Podcast 49: 'Sweet Tooth' Composer Jeff Grace Interview

    On this episode of the Geektown Behind The Scenes podcast, I am chatting with Jeff Grace, composer on Netflix wonderful fantasy adventure series 'Sweet Tooth'.

    Based on the DC/Vertigo comic book, 'Sweet Tooth' is set ten years after “The Great Crumble”, an event that wreaked havoc on the world and led to the mysterious emergence of hybrids — babies born part human, part animal. Unsure if hybrids are the cause or result of the virus, many humans fear and hunt them.

    After a decade of living safely in his secluded forest home, a sheltered hybrid deer-boy named Gus (Christian Convery) unexpectedly befriends a wandering loner named Jepperd (Nonso Anozie). Together they set out on an extraordinary adventure across what’s left of America in search of answers — about Gus’ origins, Jepperd’s past, and the true meaning of home.

    Jeff Grace is an award-winning composer who has scored a multitude of films and tv series, a number of which have been collaborations with 'Sweet Tooth' showrunner Jim Mickle. They include the Sundance TV drama 'Hap and Leonard' which ran on Amazon in the UK, the Netflix film 'In the Shadow of the Moon', starring Boyd Holbrook and Michael C. Hall, the movies 'Cold In July', starring Michael C. Hall, Sam Shepard and Don Jonson, and 'Night Moves', starring Jesse Eisenberg and Dakota Fanning. More recently Jeff has been scoring Facebook Watch series 'The Birch', and Tom Dolby's film 'The Artist's Wife' starring Lena Olin and Bruce Dern.

    In the interview, Jeff discusses his long collaboration with Jim Mickle, and how he came up with the unique hybrid sound of 'Sweet Tooth'. There are a number of spoilers in this interview, so I would strongly suggest you watch the series first before listening. The drama comes from Robert Downey Jr. and Susan Downey’s Team Downey, and Netflix has recently revealed it has been watched by 60 million member households, placing it as the 6th most-watched English-language original series on the streaming service

    Geektown Behind The Scenes Podcast 48: TheHunterWild Twitch Streamer & Streamer Square Co-Founder Interviewed By TristaBytes

    Geektown Behind The Scenes Podcast 48: TheHunterWild Twitch Streamer & Streamer Square Co-Founder Interviewed By TristaBytes

    In this Behind The Scenes Podcast, I'm handing over the reins to Bex, aka Twitch streamer and YouTuber TristaBytes, as she interviews Twitch Streamer, activist, and Streamer Square co-founder TheHunterWild.

    To make the connection between streamer and audience stronger, Hunter co-founded Streamer Square, which is a streamer education program that provides guides, hands-on services and coaching, reviews, and captivating live shows to help creators bring their stream to the next level.

    After starting his own game development studio at 19 and a career of being a fine artist, Hunter decided to go back to school and get a degree in environmental philosophy, both of which he brings to the table in his streaming career and connection with his audience of over 68,000.

    Streamer Square is first and foremost a community that educates its members on business, gaming, and provides gaming news. Inclusivity is one of their primary orientations, ensuring a safe space for people from all walks of life. Respect, integrity, and empathy are core qualities that Hunter safeguards and emphasizes alongside his community providing guidance. The platform produces several talk shows that promote a forum for dialogue on issues such as accessibility, transparency, and best financial practices. They invite veteran streamers and industry professionals to share their experiences in thought-provoking discussions about the streaming community and the latest news.

    Hunter is passionate about Twitch and his fans and plans on creating a Twitch-specific environmental charity. He wants to influence the industry and streaming culture with a network of sustainably focused content creators, to make the integration of climate change and gaming more accessible.

    After a couple of weeks break, we are back on the Geektown Radio podcast, and I'm joined by Matt from Entertainment Talk to chat through our week in tv, film & gaming, along with all the weekly tv news, renewals and cancellations.

    We begin by reviewing the last 7 days (and a bit longer, as we've been off) in tv, film and gaming. Matt hands out rave reviews to Season 2 of Netflix zombie drama 'Black Summer', along with heaping praise on to Apple TV+ series 'SEE'. He's also been retro(ish) gaming as he plays through the remastered version of 'Mafia'. Meanwhile, I have finished Amazon series 'Clarkson’s Farm', and we both give our thoughts on the Disney+ series 'Monsters At Work', and the return of the MCU movies with 'Black Widow'.

    In the TV news, we run through the various renewals, cancellations and pickups, which includes the final NBC cancellation in 'Good Girls' and the surprising return of 'Good Omens' on Amazon. In the news, we discuss all the highlights from Netflix's WitcherCon, along with AMC adding more human-shaped people eaters to their lineup with 'Interview With The Vampire'. We also discuss the potential of a new 'Supernatural' spin-off on The CW (and its slightly awkward announcement!)'
