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!

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!
