A podcast for the lazy geek! Every episode I pick a topic and with the help of Wikipedia, discuss the subject with comedians and special guests. No subject is off limits but I skew geeky. Simple and sometimes entertaining!
The Wizard of Oz! With Jenny Brezinski, Ela Darling and Wes Weitzenhoffer
When I decided to do an episode solely on one film there really was no discussion with the other munchkins in my brain as to what that film would be. The Wizard of Oz stands the test of time in both its story and its music but what happened behind the scenes could be a movie on its own. Joining me in the land of Oz are Jenny Brezinski, Ela Darling, and Wes Weitzenhoffer. We go into our own theories on the meaning of the film as well as reveal some fun facts that may make you appreciate the movie a little more. Plus it wouldn't be bad sloth if we didn't get off topic here and there: Ela Darling fills us in on what a "Comic-con orgy" is; we dissect the wreck that is Oz the Great and Powerful; and we get into a heated debate on whether kids films from the 80's are more creative and darker than the films of today. Oh, and Wes talks about Dorothy's menstruation, so you have that to look forward to.
Geeketeria #1 With Ela Darling, Steve Moulton and Wes Weitzenhoffer
Welcome to the first ever Geeketeria episode of the "Geekie Award" winning bad sloth podcast! Geeketeria episodes are all geek talk, no Wikipedia, and now with 100% more porn stars then ever before! The "Bones" of porn, Ela Darling, bares her inner geek and fingerblasts the porn star stereotype by showing off her big brain. Steve Moulton, fresh off his inspiring role as "Pepperjack" in Sharknado, fingerblasts the actor stereotype by having valid opinions. And a Geeketeria episode wouldn't feel complete without Wes Weitzenhoffer, who fingerblasts. Inside you'll find less offensive material about Comic-Con, film, TV, new game consoles, and I reveal how you can buy actual props from films like E.T., Star Wars and even Pee Wee Herman's bicycle! Nerdgasms galore!
Nerd/Geek! With Justin Donaldson and Hal Rudnick
Socrates pondered it, Julius Caesar died over it, it's the question the atomic bomb was spawned from: What the hell is the difference between a nerd and a geek? Who better to help answer it then the creators of the monthly Upright Citizens Brigade show Tournament of Nerds, Justin Donaldson and Hal Rudnick. Though as all great questions go, we discuss for a good 20 minutes before the conversation diverges into all sorts of macabre topics like: wrestling, action figures, Happy Days, the seedy world of Small Wonder fan fiction and my obsession with TV. By the end of this episode you WILL know if you're a nerd or a geek. (Spoiler: you're both.)
TableTopDay! With Renae Geerlings, Sina Grace, and Wes Weitzenhoffer
4 strangers meet on a train to play Trivial Pursuit in order to promote Wes Weitzenhoffer's official Table Top Day home game for the Lustgarten Foundation to cure pancreatic cancer. All that minus us being on a train and strangers. Make sense? No? It's for charity people. Play along with us and yell when we get the easy questions wrong! And you can't play 90's edition trivial pursuit without geeking out over some of the questions.
Plus, Renae and Sina recount the story about how the annoying letters of a teenage boy paved the way for him becoming the editor of Skybound Comics, which includes The Walking Dead. Find out how you can win a screen-worn Michael Myers costume from Halloween. Hint: It involves seeing the awesomely horrifying film Compound Fracture that our dear Renae produced and co-wrote with her hubby Sabretooth... I mean Tyler Mane. www.CompoundFractureTheMovie.com
In addition Sina has very graciously donated original cover art of his Not My Bag graphic novel to auction off for our cause. The auction has ended and the cover art went for $510! You can also donate straight to the charity at www.lustgarten.org/tabletopday2013.

Scientology! Part 2 With Mark Bunker and Jake Weisman
This is the second part in the two-part Scientology episode with Mark Bunker and Jake Weisman. You were promised anti-Scientology cats and in part 2 you get them! If you haven't listened to part one yet then you really should because you'll have no idea what's happening and which characters have died off and what the hell's a thetan? All that in part one but this is part two... enjoy.
Scientology! Part 1 With Mark Bunker and Jake Weisman
I have always had a morbid fascination with cults. Perhaps because I was born on the day of the Jonestown Massacre. So when I first heard about Scientology I read everything about it and was shocked at the nefarious activities they get away with. I was as giddy as a schoolgirl when "Wise Beard Man" himself, Mark Bunker, of XENUTV.com, agreed to be a guest. He's one of the main forces trying to take the corruption out of Scientology. Comedian Jake Weisman, whose fascination with the group is even greater than mine, lends us his thoughts and outrage on the matter. Jake also reveals he may be harboring anti-Scientologist cats. We get into it all, including the life of L. Ron Hubbard and his rise after writing Dianetics. You'll get a lesson on what Scientology is and learn about the tragedy of Lisa McPherson. We also discuss the mad genius behind the tactics Scientologists use to get into people's heads. You may wonder, "What's geeky about Scientology?" It's full of sci-fi and bad tech so what's not geeky about it! There's so much information it had to be split into two parts. Are we worried that the Scientologists will come get us? YES!
