The Geekbox: Episode 82

Thanks to everyone who attended the Rebel FM/Geekbox: How to Podcast Like a Pirate panel at last weekend’s Penny Arcade Expo. We’ll have audio (and hopefully video) up soon. In the meantime, please enjoy this week’s episode, which sadly does not feature Alice Liang (who’s still decompressing from a particularly crazy PAX), but instead, my awesome wife April, in her second Geekbox appearance. Oh, and if you’re up for some Team Fortress 2, we have a Geekbox group on Steam and an official TF2 server (, run by Geekbox forum superstar Mr_eX. Games are every Sunday at 4PM Pacific time! Check the forum thread for more details, and have fun!

    There should be a trap door at con Q&As for people who start their “question” with “I’m Hilbert from, blah blah blah”

    Also – ejector seats for people feel the need to yell out their “jokes” during panels, or any public performance for that matter.

    Why wouldn’t we know who Karen Chu is? Former 1UP people will always be remembered.

    re: wajah panel questions

    No panel should ever have a microphone stand setup for questions. You should always have someone in the audience with a mic that knows how to use it. That way you completely control their ability to speak, and if the person is charismatic enough coach them into speeding things up with a few laughs.

    If Jerry Springer can tame his crowd, you should be able to wrangle a few nerds.

    Music in the 90’s? Blood sex sugar magic? Opiate, undertow, Aenima? None of that was original I guess. And grunge was older than the 90s. Neil young pretty much made the prototype for grunge years before. Maybe there was nothing original in your small circle of music you like, but there happens to be things outside of that. Making generalizations like that makes you look like an ignorant tool.

    It’s not mean to say it was an completely ignorant statement, (OK Computer and a thousand other examples say hello)and it was sad no one else on the podcast had the balls to do so at the time.

    Just because you do the show from his store doesn’t mean you should feel obliged to let his “Worst Decade Ever!” Comic Book Guy ramblings go unchecked.

    This show reminded me that we’re overdue for some Joynt.

    Also, engorged vampire boners.

    Good show guys always nice to hear Ryan’s better half. Anyways here’s a huge reason for you guys to start watching Psych and that is that Nestor Carbonell aka Richard from LOST just came on for a couple of episodes I think. So Geekbox crew go and check out Psych for Richard’s sake.

    To Ryan Higgins:

    Your over generalization that the 90s brought nothing, specifically musically, was just silly. I would say ignorant, but that sounds mean and I usually enjoy your antics.

    In any case, Neutral Milk Hotel.

    That is all.

    “there was nothing original in the 90s that didn’t take from something before it”

    This is what has been happening since the dawn of music.
