The Fellowship of the Geeks Podcast

The Fellowship regrets to announce that we do not have a new episode for you this week. We had some health-related issues this week (nothing exciting, I assure you). 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: We found a way to do our monthly meetups - on Discord! Come hang out with us in the voice channel on the 4th Saturday of the month; details on...

The Fellowship of the Geeks Podcast

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of the long-running Canadian TV show The Red Green Show. Fifteen years and 300 episodes of the weird and hilarious antics of the guys of Possum Lodge, and another gem that we got through public television here in the States. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship of the Geeks Podcast

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of the Sherlock Holmes film series from the 1930s and 1940s, starring Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce. Fourteen films, two different studios, and a world war make these movies their own thing, to say the least. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship regrets to announce that we do not have a new episode for you this week. We took a little break for the holidays (which was mostly planned). 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.

The Fellowship of the Geeks Podcast

The Fellowship is pleased to present our last episode of the year. This time we're playing a game called Weird Things Humans Search For, which is based on actual search engine data, and shows an interesting picture of what people want to know, to say the least 🙂 (so this one might sound a little more "edited" than normal). Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship regrets to announce that we do not have a new episode for you this week. 2020 is not quite finished with us yet, and circumstances didn't allow us to do our thing this week. 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: We found a way to do our monthly meetups - on Discord!

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of the recent news that Warner Bros is planning to release several of their 2021 movies straight to HBOMax alongside their theater releases. The world is changing, and it's anyone's guess as to whether it's for the better or not. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of the 1965 animated short A Charlie Brown Christmas. It's that time of year, gang, and we've got plenty of lockdown time to watch some holiday classics. And this one is a particular favorite of ours, though we have some opinions about some of the others. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship regrets to announce that we do not have a new episode for you this week. We took this week off for the Thanksgiving holiday here in the States.

The Fellowship of the Geeks Podcast

The Fellowship is pleased to present our latest Casting Call episode, this time for an Avengers film in 1967. This is a very different team than the one in the recent film franchise, and that might just send us off in some wildly varied directions. And since this is set decades ago, you may need our old friend Google to figure out who the heck we're picking in some cases 🙂. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

More Episodes
The Fellowship is pleased to present our conversation with Mark Weiss, founder of ComicBooks For Kids. Mark has some wonderful stories for us about the creation of the charity, the amazing reception he's gotten from publishers (and Diamond), and the kids who are the reason for the whole thing. Among other things, Mark is a good storyteller and kept us spellbound nearly the whole time. Plus a little bit of silliness and our comics picks of the week.
