This episode of the Geekiana Podcast is guaranteed to be state of the art. Assuming you believe “the art” is any of the following: a) comedy nerdery, b) serious speculation about fictional people, or c) staying awake after putting kids to bed. Leann and Jon talk Doctor Who, Batman, and everything necessary to then connect those topics to Louie Anderson. We can do what we want, it’s the Geekiana podcast!!

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 loving a sportsball player, nor to teen pop earworms; and share the story of the worst time we saw Casino Royale (when a movie is that good, the worst is simply not that bad). And of course we round up current Doctor Who—which, exactly like Bond to Moneypenny, is suddenly rife with potential HR incidents!
It’s the Geekiana Podcast, so get up on it geeks!

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. We also play “First Time, Last Time, Best Time, Worst Time” featuring Neil Gaiman, and have a quick roundup on what’s new in the etsy shop. They’re BAAAACK

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. Plus visit a local butcher shop!
Nah, we just talk some more books. Get in the middle of it!
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 children in the ways of fair play and prepare them for their dystopian future. The 2029 battle of Tannhauser Gate will be won on the Lazer Tag fields of Coon Rapids. Come invest in a better tomorrow with another episode of The Geekiana Podcast!

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. Actually it’s a pretty good sized chunk about theater. It’s an above average week with the Geekiana Podcast. Get into it!
Music this week from Burn Unit
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?

It’s summer time at the Queen Avenue Studios and we are hot hot hot. After a successful—if brutal—outdoor show, Leann and Jon sweat it out by Breaking a little Bad, geeking out on the exploits of Jesse, Walter, and the Proceedings of the Greater Albuquerque Association of Methamphetamine Manufacturers. We discuss the deleterious effects of meth on fictional characters, and the deleterious effects of heat on the manners of craft show attendees. There’s an illuminating segment on the age-appropriateness of contemporary movies for children. And we dip into the library for another Book Talk, including a preview of the exploits of Leann’s book club, wherein we find a connection between the non-fiction of Ruth Reichl and the urban fantasy of Jim Butcher. It’s a tasty geek smorgasbord (or geekasbord if you must. and you must.) so get your ears filled up on the Geekiana Podcast!

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 The Geekiana Podcast. Let’s GO!
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 your latest episode of the Geekiana podcast now!
