Sinopse

We're all geeky about something. In this podcast, I interview geeky people about geeky things. The goal is to focus on the culture of geek media (e.g., comics, television shows, movies, gaming, online media, science, etc.), enjoying our obsessions while still managing to look at them through a critical lens. Listen as we talk about why people do what they do and how they got where they are.And now it's time to g33k out.

  • Episode 49: Another Well Kept Secret Exposed

    Episode 49: Another Well Kept Secret Exposed

    29/03/2020 Duração: 50min

    I first was introduced to the artwork of the artist known as Another Well Kept Secret thanks to Tumblr and Sherlock. Her artwork shows a stylized humanity with very animated features - and she has a romantic flair that shows that love is indeed at the heart of everything she does. Her real name is Kelley and she's from Tennessee. She's been on my list to interview for a while, but got bumped up partially because she's been upping her commissions to help offset the current economic downturn the virus has caused so many. We talk about her art, her being open about her asexuality, and her interest in Sherlock Holmes and Good Omens. For complete show notes, go to my website.

    Episode 48: Alex De Vore is a Fibber

    23/02/2020 Duração: 36min

    Alex DeVore is a culture editor for the Santa Fe Reporter. Additionally, Alex is the guitarist for the punk band Fibber: he's played music for over 20 years, but Fibber is a relatively new creation. We talk about his writing, why he plays (and plays punk specifically), and gaming as a medium and art form. For complete show notes, go to my website.

  • Episode 47: Sav Rodgers Chases Chasing Amy

    Episode 47: Sav Rodgers Chases 'Chasing Amy'

    17/11/2019 Duração: 37min

    While living in Kansas City, I volunteered with the all-volunteer performing arts magazine KC Stage. We covered not only theatre, but any of the performing arts -- which included the surprisingly strong independent film scene (partially thanks to the, and faculty member Kevin Wilmott). Additionally, I also (unsurprisingly) participated in a lot of geeky and sci fi activities and helped out with the all-volunteer website SciFi4Me. So, when I heard Kansas City native Sav Rodgers had made a documentary in connection to a TED Talk about the movie Chasing Amy, I was understandably confused as to whether I knew him thanks to KC Stage or SciFi4Me. The thing is: I don't think we ever actually met in person prior to this interview. I interview him about his TED Talk, being a queer filmmaker, and connecting to Kevin Smith. Head's up: there is some minor cursing in this episode. For complete show notes, go to my website. 

  • Episode 46: Alisa Stern of Doctor Puppet

    Episode 46: Alisa Stern of 'Doctor Puppet'

    15/10/2019 Duração: 34min

    Back in February, I attended my second Gallifrey One convention here in Los Angeles. While there, I managed to snag 30 minutes of time with animator and artist Alisa Stern, the woman behind the YouTube web series Doctor Puppet. We talk about what got her into animation, why she chose to do a Doctor Who-based series, and what's next on her plate now that she's decided to wrap it all up.

  • Episode 45: Geek Girls Part 3 - Grace (aka Cerberusia)

    Episode 45: Geek Girls Part 3 - Grace (aka Cerberusia)

    21/06/2019 Duração: 38min

    This is the third episode in my ongoing series where I interview women in the geek community about what their experiences were like, and their history as a fangirl. Cerberusia is one of the women I had originally interviewed back in 2014, when I was visiting London. I had been working on an article on fan fiction for the company I was interning at, and had reached out to Tumblr to find people outside of my fandom areas to quote. Since she was based in the UK (Oxford, to be precise), I asked if she would be interested in a further interview. Obviously, time has passed since that interview, and so when I decided to get back to doing these, we agreed to redo the interview. We have a great discussion about what it means to be a geek, how she fangirls, and the future of geek culture. For complete show notes, go to my website. 

  • Episode 44: Writers amp Illustrators of the Future Awards 2019

    Episode 44: Writers & Illustrators of the Future Awards 2019

    01/06/2019 Duração: 45min

    I've attended the Writers & Illustrators of the Future Awards several times now. In fact, Episode 22 of this podcast was covering the 2017 ceremony. Attending this awards ceremony is always fun, and this year was no different. This was the 35th annual awards ceremony, and the them was Retro Robotics.  The keynote was a 'Science Fiction 101' by journalist Ed Hulse. Illustrator Bob Eggleton was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award, who is also the artist of this year's anthology.  Andrew Dykstal took home the Grand Prize Writer Award, and Aliya Chen took home the Grand Prize Illustrator Award. Meanwhile, Alice Wang, who won the fourth quarter illustrator award, became the youngest winner to enter and win. Finally, one of the winners, Preston Dennett, submitted 47 times prior to winning this year, earning 12 honorable mentions over the years.  While as with all red carpets my interviews here are brief, I did manage to snag contact information for a couple of the people I talked to in the

  • Episode 43: Marsia Powers amp WhedonCon

    Episode 43: Marsia Powers & WhedonCon

    16/05/2019 Duração: 40min

    I first heard about what is known as WhedonCon back in 2016, when I wrote an article for SciFi4Me about it changing its name. It, like GallifreyOne, is a Los Angeles-based con that I first heard about once I moved here.  Since that initial article, I'd kept my eye on it and started seeing posts from one of the people who run it in some of my other geeky groups. Marsia Powers is a Los Angeles real estate agent by day, Whedon fan by ... well, by all free time? She not only helps manage the con, but she also helps run the fan sites Whedonopolis and Fandomopolis, which you may have noticed I've written for occasionally in the past year.  I set down with Marsia and talked about Buffy, the Vampire Slayer, Joss Whedon, being a fan, and WhedonCon.  For complete show notes, go to my website.

  • Contents May Vary - The Cauliflower Club

    Contents May Vary - The Cauliflower Club

    01/05/2019 Duração: 21min

    This is part of a new series of episodes that will be me playing around with audio. These episodes will be produced on no particular deadline - just when I have the time and energy. They also will be published on my feed at times that don't compete with the (somewhat) regular schedule of G33K Out. And, so you can skip them if you want, they will all start with the title "Contents May Vary".  First up: friend of the podcast Angelique Jurd writes male/male romance, and last year had released a fun short story for free. Knowing I wanted to delve into playing around with audio, I asked if she would be open to me attempting to do an audio version of the story. She agreed.  Here's the story description:  Jay tells himself that he doesn't mind spending Valentine's Day alone. Again. His friends, however, have different plans and insist on setting him up on a blind date at a gay vegan cooking class. Jay agrees on the condition that if he goes, they'll leave him alone in the future. He doesn't count on t

  • Episode 42: (Two-Thirds of) The Reduced Shakespeare Company

    Episode 42: (Two-Thirds of) The Reduced Shakespeare Company

    15/04/2019 Duração: 32min

     I've been a fan of the Reduced Shakespeare Company (and their podcast) for a long time. In fact, I jokingly refer to Austin Tichenor, the one who does the weekly podcast, as the 'honorary godfather' of G33K Out, as that podcast was one of the many influences on G33K Out, and its predecessor Stage Savvy.  If you're unfamiliar with their work, the RSC has been around since 1981, and started with a variation of what's now know as The Complete Works of Shakespeare (Abridged) at various Renaissance fairs. They've been touring their latest production, William Shakespeare's Long Lost First Play (Abridged), including a stop in Los Angeles.  I sat down with Austin Tichenor and Reed Martin of the RSC. We talked about being an actor and playwright, how things have changed when they first started, and the various details of working together and doing comedy.   For complete show notes, go to my website.

    Episode 41: Petrea Burchard

    25/03/2019 Duração: 40min

    Petrea Burchard is an actor, author, audiobook narrator, and voiceover  artist. We met at a writer's group we both belong to, when Petrea did a  presentation on audiobooks. As someone who listens to audiobooks when I  have time in-between listening to podcasts, I was already intrigued. But  when she said she was the original English voice of Ryoko from Tenchi Muyo, she had me hooked.   Petrea has written two books, has narrated the Westwick Witches mystery  series, and has done both stage and screen, among other things. We talk  about all of this, and more.   For complete show notes, go to my website.

    18/11/2018 Duração: 39min

  • Episode 36: Composer Aaron Guzzo and the Tesla Musical

    Episode 36: Composer Aaron Guzzo and the Tesla Musical

    20/10/2018 Duração: 01h04min

     Nikola Tesla is considered by many geeks to be an unsung hero of the 20th century. The inventor of alternating current and many other ideas that we now use regularly, the man is hardly known outside of the geek realms outside of in a vague way. Composer Aaron Guzzo was fascinated by the man, and decided to write a musical based on his life. I sat down with Guzzo and discussed the musical, his process as a composer, and how he got from Indiana to Los Angeles and how that helped bring the musical to life.  For complete show notes, go to my website.

     There’s been a lot of talk in the last few months about the toxicity in the Star Wars fandom, specifically in the backlash against The Last Jedi. How it connects to women and people of color in fandom is not an accident. So, I got together with some women to discuss the female perspective on the issue.   For complete show notes, go to my website.

    Back in 2014, I decided I wanted to start a series of interviews with women in the community to discuss what it was like. I finally am getting around to producing some of those interviews. Supriya and I met, as mentioned in the interview, thanks to a Facebook Sherlock fan group for those in Southern California. At the time, she worked for Geek and Sundry, although now she works for DeviantArt. Originally from the Silicon Valley area, she moved to Los Angeles to look for work. We talk Harry Potter, Reddit, and other topics.  For complete show notes, go to my website.
