This week on the Educating [Geeks] podcast hosts Bri, Andrea, Sara, and Krissy talk about Season 1 of Supernatural. Monsters of the week, The Hardy Boys meets X Files, the spirit of the Bechdel Test, and more are discussed on this week’s episode.
We recorded this podcast live at NCT Phoenix. Megan focuses on all the clever little details, Krissy gets her soap operas mixed up, Alice presents some logic that makes sense only to her, and Paul gets very angry at Siskel and Ebert’s reaction to the film.
What can one say about Game of Thrones? Everyone knows it as “G.o.T” for short, or they say the phrase “Winter is Coming,” and people know exactly what you’re referring to.
Game of Thrones has become a kind of huge “experience” in some people’s lives. I think it appeals to all different audiences. The older crowds, younger crowds (think early 20s) and the in-betweeners. I’m one generation and my parents are another, but we all enjoy the show fairly equally. The action and storyline are pretty fantastic. Check out some of the things that make me geek out about the show!
While growing up my father taught me many lessons on tolerance, respect, and friendship…using the sporadic episodes of Star Trek we caught on daytime television. I was left with some great stories to pin my moral compass to, but my overall Trek knowledge ended up spotty and incomplete. Then Netflix starting adding Star Trek to its roster of streaming TV shows, and I knew what I had to do. I have to watch every episode of Star Trek. Ever.
Last year All The Trek tackled Star Trek: The Original Series in its entirety (check out the reviews at our youtube channel). This year we’re ready to jump into The Next Generation. We’ll be covering one (sometimes two) episodes a week with recaps, reviews, and ratings. At the end of each season we’ll give you a video wrap-up of the series so far.
The Settlers of Catan. A board game where you trade sheep for wood and every friendship is in danger of ending. But before your friendship ends, try playing with these Educating [Geeks] Drinking Game rules — they might work. If you think we got silly on the Educating [Geeks] podcast for Catan, you ain’t heard nothin’ yet. We were definitely baaaaaad as Huan and Diana say. And we need your help with a few things, so make sure you read the entire post and help us solve a few conundrums.
