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

MrCmonster ,

Smart, funny, thoughtful, and entertaining

This is one of my favorite podcasts. I look forward to the new episode every week. I feel that George is a friend that I’ve never met in person. I enjoy listening to his stories and all the segments on the show. Keep up the great work Geo, it’s appreciated very much.

PaulCosmic ,

An important part of my lifestyle.

Geo is great and a big dose of sanity during insane times. By now almost everyone has a podcast but this is the only one that I make sure to keep up-to-date.

Career FF ,

It’s so good it should be illegal!

This is a brilliant podcast that is funny, educational, clever and always entertaining. Every episode I learn something and laugh, what else could you ask for. Stay creative and Thanks Geo! Jeff Z
