In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I don’t have a guest. I guess that makes it a “hostful” episode (yes, I totally stole that term from Nerdist, obviously). Since May ends up with an “extra” Monday (I’ve been posting on the first and third Mondays, and May has a fifth), I figured it was about time to pull back the curtains, so to speak, on this whole geek music thing that I’ve been doing for the last five years or so. I’ll explore the origins of my column about geek music and the origins of this podcast plus a little bit of my own philosophy of geek music.
In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk to Kyle Stevens from Kirby Krackle. In the interview, we talked about awkward fan moments, geeks vs. nerds, the death of geek culture (or maybe not…), the origins of Frank the Pocket, and TED talk hands. I’m not sure where the hissing in the background towards the end came from; I tried to clean it up as best as I could, but I couldn’t get rid of it entirely. I think it’s still quite listenable.
In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk to Aramis. In the interview, we talked about video game rage, samurai, intelligent music, Marvel vs. DC, comic books TV shows, and messy rooms.
You’ll notice that I decided to cut out this part of the intro on the podcast. Basically, I realized that it’s kind of redundant since I already introduce the podcast before I start the interview. It’s an experiment, but I’m pretty confident that I’ll stick with it.
