Great podcast!

Great execution, coupled with a wide variety of guests and topics, make this a wonderful podcast. Not every topic hits home for me, but that’s to be expected. Thank you all for a great contribution!

Going strong and still full of surprises

The most recent episode reminded me why I get excited to hear the interviews on GGTTG. I could probably have found out a lot of it after some searching and reading a lot, but I didn't know there was so much reason to go do those rabbit holes.

A thoughtful and rigorous contribution to benevolent fandom

For years I’ve turned to Geek’s Guide for open-ended discussions on my favorite content. Dave’s warm yet analytical tone is well-suited to the variety of formats this show offers. The lovable cast of returning panelists punctuate the interview roster with just the kind of quirky party that I enjoy with my own friends. I recently became a supporter after realizing that Patreon’s per-episode floating contribution offers a simple mechanism for encouraging more Geek’s Guide.
