The Geekbox: Episode 151

Happy 2012! Alas, Justin Haywald bids an absentee farewell to the Geekbox this week, due to his new job. I’m relieved that he landed on his feet so quickly post-GamePro, but we’ll all definitely miss him. But don’t be too sad, as the 2nd 87th Annual Geekbox Awards (AKA the Geekboxies) headline this week’s extra-long episode. So tune in, let us know if you agree for our best and worst picks for 2011, and have a look at Karen Chu’s awesome podcast project, Good Job, Brain! — it’s currently 74% funded on Kickstarter, so please help her get it to 100% if it sounds interesting to you!

To close out 2011, we’ve got a special dual-Fitch episode, with Adam Fitch and returning guest host (and founding Geekbox host!) Andrew Fitch. May you find the proceedings half as crazy as I did. Don’t forget to check out the Kickstarter page for Karen Chu’s in-progress trivia/quiz show podcast project, Good Job, Brain! — she’s doing well so far, but please help to get her project funded if it sounds interesting to you!

The Geekbox: Episode 149

Two fun things this week: First, Max Scoville — of Destructoid and Comedy Button fame — joins us, filling the home-for-the-holidays Justin Haywald’s empty seat. Second, Karen Chu’s starting her own podcast, a trivia/quiz show called Good Job, Brain! She’s set up a Kickstarter project to secure funding for recording equipment, and she’s got some pretty cool incentive prizes for her backers. So check it out, read her pitch, and consider tossing her some cash if it sounds interesting to you. If anyone knows trivia, it’s certainly Karen!
