At Geek Therapy we believe that the best way to understand each other, and ourselves, is through the content we love. Join Josué Cardona, Lara Taylor, and Lauren Keller every week as they discuss the different ways we can use the things we geek out about to relate to one another, learn, and save the world. We explore the potential benefits of comics, games, TV shows, and movies through the practice of Geek Therapy. Geek out and do good!

I jumped into GT Radio cold, not realizing that the show was, in part, about the application of geek culture to psychology. So you'll understand my surprise when I discovered, to my delight, that the episodes covered everything from the meaning of heroism in the DC universe to the struggles of healthcare workers during COVID-19 to hobbies and money and the power of LEGOs!
All this is to say that GT Radio is a unique show in the geek podverse. And that makes it such a fun podcast to listen to. So if you need something about geekery that is also more grounded in the world, this is the show for you.
It's good and doing good
Even as someone who is more geek than therapist, I get a lot out of the content of this podcast. They do a really great job of speaking in lay person's terms and relating deep topics to so many of the things I'm interested in. Keep up the meaningful work!
What a lovely little podcast!
This podcast is a breath of fresh air. Great geeky content, great sound quality, really nice attention to structure and pacing, and it’s just so darn wholesome. Keep up the good work, can’t wait for the Disney pod.
