    The Two Gay Geeks have a chat with each other about a series we are very late to the party on; We just finished The Witcher Season 1 and Oh My Gosh! what a wild ride and confusing at the same time. We discuss what we liked about it and some of the interesting plot points and the apparent discarding of characters. All in all, we liked it and are on to Season 2 and can't wait, at the moment, for Season 3. Have a listen and we hope you enjoy this as much as we did.

    The Witcher







    ☀☀☀





    Geralt of Rivia, a brooding professional monster hunter for hire also known as a witcher, struggles to keep his humanity in a medieval dark fantasy world ruled by corrupt kings, queens and mages, where poverty, violence and intolerance are rampant, normal humans are sometimes worse than actual monsters and most jobs that pay well involve the darkest of human emotions and desires. Yennefer of Vengerberg is an ambitious mage who came from nothing and wants everything. Princess Cirilla or Ciri is a young girl who may or may not possess some great mysterious power within her. Their destinies, seemingly quite different, slowly intertwine in a rather cosmic fashion. Their companions include Jaskier the bard, Geralt's endearingly annoying friend and hype man vowed to spread the word of his heroics throughout the continent even if he has to embellish them a little for a few coins more, Tissaia de Vries, Yennefer's secretive mentor who believes in tough love, and Triss Merigold, a good-natured druidic mage and trustworthy friend. The Nilfgaardian Empire's sudden brutal invasion of the kingdom of Cintra ruled by Cirilla's protective grandmother, warrior queen Calanthe, puts their lives in great danger.

    The Two Gay Geeks have a chat with each other about a couple of things we are passionate about; "Star Trek" and "Star Wars" in all incarnations. We do a dive into this season of "Star Trek: Discovery", the new Star Trek show "Star Trek: Prodigy", all of which we tried to stay as spoiler-free as possible. We then chatted about our re-watch of Season 1 "Star Trek: Picard" but were a little more spoiler-y since it has been out for a year. We wanted to catch back up before Season 2 airs next month. Of course, there was our usual banter and digressions as well as derailed trains of thought. Have a listen and we hope you enjoy this as much as we did.

    The Two Gay Geeks have a chat with Richard Fairgray, who has written and illustrated multiple books, comics, among other things. We chat with Richard about how he got started and what he is working on currently. Look for his new, should I say, webcomic that will be appearing in January and be updated regularly. Have a listen and we hope you enjoy this as much as we did.

     

















    About Richard Fairgray



    Proud human garbage, living in the filth of Hollywood and making books about all sorts of things. Blind, gay and grumpy about both. I've been making comics for a really long time and I've made a lot of them, mostly in New Zealand and mostly out of print and lost on hard drives during the dark ages before cloud storage. What you'll find on this site is a deep dive into the last ten years of my work, with a mix of short and long comics and stories. All up it's about half of what I've had published. On top of that, there are some samples from books that are with other publishers, the complete run of the American edition of BLASTOSAURUS, and my new series HAUNTED HILL (beginning 01.20.22). I have a lot of new books coming, so sign up for the mailing list and keep checking back in.

    The Two Gay Geeks have a chat with our good friend and collaborator, Hamish Downie. Hamish has directed a new film, Matcha and Vanilla which is releasing this week on the Gay Streaming Service, GagaOOLala. Hamish fills us in on what he has been doing since we last spoke with him and what he has coming up. Have a listen and we hope you enjoy this as much as we did.

     

















    About Hamish Downie



    Hamish Downie is an Australian LGBT filmmaker and producer based in Osaka, Japan. After teaming up with Paul Leeming and directing some music videos for world music diva, Robyn Loau, he made his first short film, Silence, which did well on the festival circuit in Europe. Buoyed by that success, he ventured out to make his first feature film, Matcha & Vanilla which reunites the creative team behind Silence.



    Hamish hopes to continue to make films that have a multi-cultural focus, and in the future would like to make an animated series. For his next project, he hopes to make a musical

    web series.

















    About Matcha and Vanilla







    ☀☀☀





    Yuki and Ai are a long-term lesbian couple living in the closet in Japan's traditional society. When Yuki is diagnosed with terminal cancer, they must fight against their family, the hospital, and society in order to stay together until the end.



    Director's Statement



    Fear is one of my biggest muses. The Never Let You Down music video was about the time I was getting stalked by a fan. An American Piano was my cry for world peace at a time that felt like we were going to have another world war. And Silence was about an abusive relationship I was in. Now, with my debut feature film, Matcha & Vanilla I'm tackling both love and fear. I've been in a long-term relationship for a while and moved to Osaka to be closer with this person. Things are going well, although we don't have a lot of money.

    My biggest fear is that one of us gets sick, and we can't financially support each other. More importantly, as we don't have Marriage Equality in Japan if my partner were to get sick and go into hospital, I might never see him again as I'm not recognized as being his family. This is a real fear that all LGBT couples in Japan have. So, I wanted to hold up a mirror to that with this film. Making the film was very cathartic for me, and for our team.



    I've definitely been inspired by the Australian film Three Dollars and Happy Together (one of the few LGBT films about poverty), as well as Last Days by Gus Van Sant. I wrote the script for Tomoko Hayakawa and Qyoko Kudo especially. They are the two best actors I know in Japan and we've collaborated on many projects now. I also needed Paul Leeming both behind the lens and as the colorist to realize the style of the 80s and 90s arthouse films that I love.

    The Two Gay Geeks have a chat with Carl Thiel, Director and Taylor Wallace, Star of the short film, "Displaced". We find out how Carl and Taylor came together to make the film and talk briefly about Carl's involvement with film making prior to making this film. Have a listen and we hope you enjoy this as much as we did.

     





















    About Carl Thiel



    Writer/director Carl Thiel is an award-winning film & TV composer/producer who splits time between Austin, TX and Los Angeles. Early in his career, after having made significant strides in the film world, Carl’s other passion, music composition/production, took off and required his undivided attention. He has since scored countless projects with great success, including many of director Robert Rodriguez's most prominent films. This recent pandemic afforded him the opportunity to rediscover his love for story telling through film. He invested that time developing several scripts, and eventually, directing a new short feature. What started as an exercise in fun with actor Taylor C. Wallace and cinematographer Karl Toft turned out to be a full-throttled passion project. And thus we now have “Displaced.”



    About Taylor Wallace



    Taylor C. Wallace is an actor and musician who currently resides in Austin, TX. Taylor achieved success in the early 2000’s as a recording artist in Los Angeles making two notable albums with his band Trigger Point that went on to worldwide acclaim. After spending time behind the scenes as the executive producer on the Red Bull documentary “Long Way to the Top”, Taylor decided it was time to step in front of the camera to meld his love of performing with his love of making films.











    About Displaced







    ☀☀☀





    DISPLACED is an exciting new mind-bending sci-fi short starring Taylor C. Wallace, written and directed by award winning film and TV composer Carl Thiel (Spy Kids 4, Machete Kills, Sin City 2), now exploring his voice as a filmmaker.



    LOG LINE- At a low point in his life, urbanite Peter Sabik goes on a solo camping trip in hopes of finding inner guidance, only to discover a mysterious message which sets him off on an extraordinary adventure defying the laws of time and space.

Love the variety

Their motto is “we talk about all forms of geekdom and nerdery...”
Ben and Keith have genuine curiosity for subjects from TV/Film to Cons to Opera and more. Good interviews where the guests have plenty of time to talk about their projects and passions. Great synergy with the two hosts will keep you entertained.

VirgoM567 ,

Interesting viewpoints

This is one of the most balanced podcasts out there. Highly recommend.

Neil Johnson ,

Awesomeness

I love that these guys are so articulate and clear. They don't laugh at each other's in-jokes like so many other podcasts. They are professional and properly consider their audience as hosts. My biggest surprise was while I was listening... the fabulous Tracey Birdsall came on... for a film that I am very fond of- Rogue Warrior. Nice surprise. Great sci-fi guests all around and they love Dr Who.
