    HTP #130 - Kellan the ThiftyTrekkie

    Kellan and I are two geeks who are in-between conventions and are just worn out from the travel. In this episode, we compare notes on our favorite conventions… from STTC, SDCC, Phoenix Fan Fusion, Emerald City, Soonercon and even a local library con. We also take a deep dive into why geeks get into things like classic TV sitcoms/dramedy and how it relates to our scifi fandom. Prepare for lots of cosplay talk.

    HTP #128 - Dr. Mohamed Noor Returns!

    Dr. Mohamed Noor (last appearing on Hungry Trilobyte in Episode 79) comes back to the show after a great time on Star Trek: The Cruise. He and I recap some of the fun of the trip, but quickly get down to discussing speculation on extraterrestrial life, how looking at fictional creatures can be used to move real-world biology, and another phase of his research.

    HTP #127 - SegaMasterTim

    SegaMasterTim is a veteran of the 90s Console Wars, having sat in the trenches at Australia’s Sega Hotline. Yes, not only does Tim have some great perspective of what gaming was like in the era of the Sega Master System, he also appreciates how the US and Australia had very different experiences with early gaming culture. In this episode of Hungry Trilobyte, not only do Tim and I get to talk gaming, but we extend those ideas and look at how our online socialization reflects the changes that started in the 80s.
