The Fellowship of the Geeks Podcast

The Fellowship regrets to announce that we do not have a new episode for you this week. It was a perfect storm of technical problems and illness (nothing catastrophic, just annoying enough to get in the way). We'll be back next week with more of our usual silly behavior. If you have a moment, though, check out our website and our weekly picks, and maybe grab a rerun episode to listen to. And if we don't say it enough, thank you for listening and hanging out with us 🙂   Announcements: Come hang out with us! We have monthly meetups on 2nd Saturdays in Garland, TX; details on Facebook...

The Fellowship regrets to announce that we do not have a new episode for you this week. This one was planned, though, so it's just us taking a week off around the holidays.

And if we don't say it enough, thank you for listening and hanging out with us 🙂   Announcements: Come hang out with us!

The Fellowship is pleased to present a new Casting Call episode - this time for a new streaming series for the Secret Society of Supervillains. This group has an interesting array of bad guys, to say the least, and some good guys who you might not normally think about. So we give ourselves some rope and see what happens 🙂. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship is pleased to present something a little different for the holidays - we're playing a game called Weird Things Humans Search For. It's published by Big Potato Studios, who bills it as a party game (not really aimed at kids). The rules are pretty simple, and our society is just weird enough to make it interesting. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of the Disney movie The Black Hole for the 40th anniversary of its release. Thanks to some coincidental (?) timing, there were a lot of films coming out in this time frame with at least some Star Wars influence. We talk about this film and some others like it, the cast, the story, and a ton of other fun stuff. Plus tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship is pleased to present a Q&A episode. We got some great questions from listeners (and fellow podcasters) and we're answering a couple of them in this episode. We get into how geeky we really are, fangirling, Dobby vs Gollum, a Stan Lee biopic, and a whole lot of other stuff. Plus our usual strange behavior and our picks of the week.

Also, we seem to have gotten some overzealous microphone stuff going on in here, too. Apologies for the questionable sound quality (it's beyond my meager sound editing skills to clean that up).
