A Moment of Silence for Andrew Fitch

The Geekbox is going dark for the week, in remembrance of our friend and founding co-host Andrew Fitch, who passed away on April 17 after his battle with cancer. In lieu of a new episode, I encourage you to go back and revisit some of our older episodes featuring Andrew. Some highlights for you:

  • Episode 1: Where it all began!
  • Episode 13: The birth of the Gabrielle Anwar scale.
  • Episode 79: Andrew’s final episode as a regular host, before he left us to join the EGM team.
  • Episode 150: Our 1st episode featuring Andrew and Adam Fitch together.
  • Episode 200: Andrew guest stars with his wife-to-be, Mary.
  • Episode 274: Our 2nd episode featuring Andrew and Adam Fitch together, recorded from E3 2014
  • Episode 327: Our 3rd episode featuring Andrew and Adam Fitch together, recorded from E3 2015.
  • Episode 376: Our 4th episode featuring Andrew and Adam Fitch together, recorded from E3 2016. Andrew’s final appearance on The Geekbox.

We’ll be back with a new episode next week as usual. Please spare a thought for Andrew, Adam, and their family. We’ve lost a good one.

The Geekbox: Episode 464

We have some unfortunate news to share this week: Our friend and former co-host Andrew Fitch was diagnosed with cancer a few months ago. He is currently staying at Stanford Medical in Palo Alto, CA due to related complications. Andrew’s preference up until now has been to keep his condition private, but given his current shape, he has asked us to share, in case friends/fans would like to send flowers, well wishes, etc.

If you’d like, you can order flowers through the Stanford Gift Shop; all you need to give them is the patient’s name. And, if there’s anything else you’d like to send for Andrew, you can use our general Geekbox/Comics Conspiracy mailing address, and we’ll make sure it gets to him:

Andrew Fitch
c/o Comics Conspiracy
913 West El Camino Real
Sunnyvale, CA 94087

We don’t have much more to share at this point, in terms of specifics. Just know that anything and everything, in terms of hope and love and positive sentiment, would be very appreciated by Andrew and his family.
