The Fellowship of the Geeks Podcast

The Fellowship regrets to announce that we do not have a new episode for you this week. This week gave us a freakin' list of stuff to deal with, so we're just rearranging the schedule a bit. 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...

The Fellowship of the Geeks Podcast

The Fellowship is pleased to present the last of our discussion of sci-fi classics with Time Bandits (1981). Say what you will about Gilliam (and we do here), but his movies look amazing. But one last time, does it hold up? Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship is pleased to present the next of our discussion of sci-fi classics with Escape From New York (1981). We had some dissension in the ranks over this one, and a few wild ideas about film along the way. But again, does it hold up? Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship is pleased to present the next of our discussion of sci-fi classics with Logan's Run (1976). This one has some interesting themes in it (including predicting online dating?), and some great special effects for the time. But again, does it hold up? Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship is pleased to present the kickoff of a month of sci-fi classics, where we're discussing The Day The Earth Stood Still (1951). It's turning 70 this year, and it's a sci-fi classic, but does it hold up? 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. Tech issues got the best of us (along with a list of other weirdness). 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.

She's got a new Kickstarter campaign live now, so go check it out. And she's got a ton of other cool stuff going on, too. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship is pleased to present a new Casting Call, this time for a theoretical Daredevil TV series starting in 1978. With the Superman movie and the Hulk and Spidey TV shows going on, this was kind of a mini-golden-age moment for comics in media. So we're running with it. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of the 1976 DC/Marvel crossover event Superman vs The Amazing Spider-Man: The Battle of the Century. This was a big one at the time, with the Superman movie and the Spidey TV show going on. DC and Marvel don't always play nice, and this was one of those nice moments. 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 planned to take a week off in March (though an argument could be made about tech issues).
