Tom and Scott discuss something from a geeky perspective. Some weeks it's a TV show, some weeks it's one of the greatest films of all time. Some weeks it's just what's in the news.
Scott Inteviews Paul Sun Hyung Lee
Scott Inteviews Paul Sun Hyung Lee, Appa from Kim's Convenience and Captain Carson Teva in The Mandalorian. Wonderful chat!
CGC 109: The Appendix!
We take the season that was, and turn it into a roundup with Scott, Tom, Rich and Hammond!
CGC 108: Why CGI Cant Do Everything...Yet
CGC 108: Why CGI Cant Do Everything...Yet. Mo-cap, CG, big stuff, subtle stuff…it’s all amazing, but will we ever get to a place where CGI just simply does it all? Maybe. Tune in and see if we get closer to that answer!
CGC 107: One Connection To Rule Them All
From serial and parallel to SCSI and IDE to firewire and USB-C, today's episode dives deep into the history of connectivity, and why it took so long to get where we are, as fast as we are.
CGC 106: Before E Was For Everyone
Before E Was For Everyone. Remember the early 90's and a little game called Mortal Kombat? Well, it sorta changed the video game world forever, and created a whole new stir among parents, gamers, and the government! We tackle that time and see what we can suss out of it, and look at what has actually changed!
CGC 105: The Reality of Reality TV
The stories about how reality TV gets made, and how the people who make it and edit get to what we call the final product. Is any of it real? We go deep and take a peek.
I love it!
Boring scripts read
Tom and Scott are so obviously reading scripts. If not it sure sounds like it. I thought this would be more like StuffYouShouldKnow but with less budget. It's nothing even remotly as good. SYSK might have a script too but it sounds like just two friends explaining stuff. SYSK's producer Jeri is also probably much better than CGC's.
Background music is the worst. Too loud and for too long. Always having some music running which is mostly when the interviewed person is talking is terrible.
Used to be a favorite…
I used to love this show back when it was weekly with guests. Then they got rid of the guests and added in the TV pilot and movie episodes. I maybe listened to one in four of each of those. Now the “Chronicles” iteration is worse. I’m a big fan of Tom and Scott. I’ve listened to both of them almost daily for years. They hosted some of my earliest podcasts (Buzz Out Loud, ELR, The Instance), but this show is basically just them reading a scripted Wikipedia article now. It takes all the fun banter out of it. I’ve moved on to Geek Show to scratch my weekly geek news and discussion. I only listen to Current Geek Chronicles if I’ve completely caught up on all my other podcasts, and even then, I usually switch to music or an audiobook.
