299 episodes

The Geologic Podcast is a weekly podcast consisting of personal stories, comedy sketches, news commentary, music and movie reviews, science advocacy, original songs, and interviews. Its host and producer is musician, composer, drummer, comedian, storyteller, TEDx speaker, event emcee, and vigilant defender of the Theory of Gravity— George Hrab. The content often draws from Geo’s musical career; the music industry in general; his adventures as a semi-almost-famous critical thinker; his fascination with language, culture, and science; and ranges in tone from incredibly serious to unbearably silly.

The show’s name is a portmanteau of “George” and “Logic,” and—quite confusingly—the show contains no geology content whatsoever. Recurring characters on the show (all portrayed by Hrab) include Dr. Damian Handzy, Mortimer, Minoishe Interroberg, Rupert McClanahan and many others. The podcast content varies from week to week, but often features several of a number of recurring segments including Interesting Fauna, Ask George, Geo’s Mom Reads Jay-Z Lyrics, The History Chunk, Horror-Scopes, and The Weekly Standard. George looks at his show as a type of “brain sorbet” for those who may need the occasional respite from the “coarses” of life.

The podcast started in February 2007, and George has rarely missed posting one episode per week ever since. Just ask his therapist.

Customer Reviews

Zamzara ,

Feel like George is an old friend

I've been listening for many years but have only just managed to navigate the maze of how to leave a review here. George's philosphy on life has become a major part of my world. All mixed in with fantastic stories, music, and sketches. 10/10

SaracenMan ,

The best

Been listening since the mid 17th century or so. Best entertainment ever... vibraphone geo!

Michael Macey ,

Amazing listen

I have been listening since 2009. This podcast is fantastic and George is an entertaining and highly informative guy. I suggest this podcast to anyone who listens to podcasts.
