Great guide through science fiction

I'm really grateful for David Barr Kirtley for running this show. For me it is one of the key guides what to watch and read or not, where it comes to science fiction.

"Interesting Question"

This show is geekery in the best sense of the world: it's about curiosity, passion, and thinking things through.

"That's an interesting question" is a recurring refrain among the interviewees on Geek's Guide. And it's true: host David Barr Kirtley is consistently well-prepared and genuinely interested in the answers to his well-thought out questions. Which in turn is easy when the guests are so consistently interesting people.

The roundtable episodes deserve a lot of love too: they are hilarious, insightful, and brimming with enthusiasm.

* whispers it * there's women on this show! Like, on the roundtables and among the interviewees. The producers recognise it's something the genre traditionally has some work to do, and they are quietly doing their share to change that. Without fanfare, just... doing the work. I appreciate that immensely. So yeah. Five stars. I'd give you six, but that's how many there are.
