A really fun geek-themed podcast

This is a great show! It focuses on the more intellectual side of geek-esque topics; everything from video game music to comic book writing to how action figures are made. I find it very enjoyable, and I also appreciate the 10-to-20 minute running time, as I don't always want a show that's an hour loong or more. It's quick, to-the-point, fun, professionally put together, and -- most importantly -- interesting to listen to.
