Creative Commons licensed. Visit their soundcloud page at https://soundcloud.com/spaceslab-goBy Geekiana
 
We're still talkin about British TV, but this time it's not a genre show, or a highfalutin soap opera, or a genre soap opera. We also geek out about Ghostbusters news, and take a look back at theworst of Mario Kart. There's also some title-mashery that reaffirms the value of our theater degrees. Get your geek on with the latest Geekiana Podcast!…
 
Jon FINALLY got thru Ready Player One, so we go deep into it. Then we hit a bunch of other science fiction stories. The Matrix, Johnny Mnemonic, old and new games, all make appearances. We also pull from the hat and talk Harry Potter. It's a big time potluck on The Geekiana Podcast!By Geekiana
 
Leann is geeking out about Upstairs Downton or whatever those two shows are called. Jon drones on about Breaking Bad and The Wire (again). There's talk about costuming and hairstyles, the Bad News segment is chockablock with Extinction, Russia, Woody Allen, and Harold Ramis. But we also talk good news with our neighborhood's new bookstore! then ...…

Music this week includes "Face the Sun" by Cloudju ...…

Season Two rolls on with geeking out about John Scalzi, Downton and apparently the whole catalog of BBC television, and laughing with the most dangerously unpredictable and foul-mouthed Scotsman to travel in the TARDIS since Jamie McCrimmon. We also talk about funny things we like, and get into each of our worst times with David Weber's Honorve ...…
 
We post this episode after a long break—we recorded it over two months before posting! Leann and Jon geek out over Top Gear, civic matters, Doctor Who, The Onion, and bemoan the loss of a punter.

Travis Richey—whom you may recognize from NBC’s Community—geeks out with us ...…
 
Leann and Jon saddle up to talk a little Sherlock, the fate of Futurama and the duality of Man (One of those topics is not covered. Guess which one. Unless you count modern professional sports management as a commentary on the duality of man, which Jon does so that topic IS covered, if obliquely.) We discover that even geeks are not immune to l ...…
 
It’s the return of the Geekiana Podcast! With a slightly revamped format, Leann returns to talk the Geekly Weekly, Bad News Updates, our regular check in on Doctor Who, and more with trusty manservant Jon.

This episode was recorded right before the season premier of Doctor Who, so you know the TV talk is light as we turn our attention to the turning of pages. The Geekiana Podcast hits the local library with volcanic fury this week. We talk about books: Kage Baker, Ernest Cline, Neal Stephenson, and William Gibson all make appearances this week. P ...…
 
Join Leann and Jon as they celebrate another year of wedded bliss together and parent the living hell out of their kids: both feats accomplished with the power of lasers. First we drop some serious coin into beloved Minneapolis institution Rusty Quarters arcade, honoring our love by fending off aliens and hordes of ghosts. Then we guide our chi ...…
 
It’s another episode of makin’ (a)do with what we got (which is proudly next to nothing, natch). Leann walks us through the capers and surprises of her dreamscape (and Jon pulls us through the gutter of his). We have a little family reunion, talk Richard Ayoade, poke fun of giant chicken huts, answer listener mail, and talk a little theater. Ac ...…
 
Torchwood! The Wire! snake handling! and the history of the rise and fall of serum-powered supervillains. It’s a feast at the Queen Avenue Studios as Leann and Jon geek out over The Dark Knight Rises. We stab it with our steely knives but we just can’t kill the (KG)Beast. Won’t you join us? Music this week from: Danger Hotrod, and The Sensor Re ...…
 
It’s summer time at the Queen Avenue Studios and we are hot hot hot.

We discuss the deleterious effects of meth ...…
 
aaaaand we’re BACK. Leann and Jon return for some fun with intros, a CONvergence roundup, and snuggling. Jon shows he’s a weenie about keychains. We geek out about Pixar for a bit and Leann has good stories about how much money she’s seen in one place (hint: it is All The Money). Since we lost episode 11, it’s a special super-sized edition of T ...…
 
Gooooooaaaalll!: This week Geekiana gets a little sporty as we discuss (literal) dreams of football glory, geeky lucha libre mask ideas, Vern Gagne, and promote some of our favorite crafters. Fireworks fly, bronies are celebrated, we tread on the road to CONvergence, and sprinkle some magic pixie dust (or methadone) on the whole thing. Score yo ...…
 
t’s all Avengers all the time (not really) as the Geekiana Podcast celebrates date night. We geek at length about the bounty of comic book movies available this summer. There’s also a friendly discourse on the subject of filmic violence. And the transitory nature of beauty, again with the transitory nature of beauty—this time through the lens o ...…
 
This week we go pyrocasting! Geekiana heads outdoors to sit around a nice fire and talk about nice things like book clubs and art fairs. Jon also insults both the work of David Eddings AND your intelligence. Get in on this. Plus listener mail! Music this week from: Caly McMorrow, and Sensor Re:Engine…
 
Geekiana podcast returns for another weekly review. We give out heaps of love to star of stage and screen Victor Garber, lament the struggles of the Minneapolis Public Schools, survive the fury of late spring in Minnesota, and review some urban fantasy. No left, no right, no anything, the Geekiana podcast is only American, and we are unworthy o ...…
 
Weekend warrior Leann survives a brush with gravity, fights through the pain to make it happen at Art-A-Whirl, strides across the free marketplace of ideas with arms akimbo, and survives at least one more hour of Jon’s bullshit. Jon gets his picture taken with the mayor. Together they make podcasting magic. Fresh from the Queen Avenue Studios, ...…

It’s a nice day for a wild wedding. This episode is brought to you by Hackenmueller’s Meats. Hacke ...…
 
Join us for another playful romp through Leann’s head. (No really: we launch a new segment on lucid dreaming.)

Sacred cows make the best late night snacks with the Geekiana Podcast. Music by Danger Hotr ...…
 
This week on the Geekiana podcast we talk some serious teevee stuff. We get into Joss Whedon, memorialize the miniseries, toast Babylon Five, and toss in a few shakes of Downton Abbey. Do you know quality when you see it? Or are you willing to put up with a certain amount of B.S. if the setting or premise are nerdy enough? Music by: Caly McMorr ...…
 
Leann and Jon venture into the lion’s den of suburban community centers/white power encampments. Then we get geeky about parenting, face our fears, talk about Barbara Ehrenreich, and answer controversial listener mail. (Hint: the answer is NOPE!) This episode is brought to you by the power of positive thinking. Includes music by: Sensor Re:Engi ...…
