Karen’s out again this week, since she’s all alone dog-sitting while her bum-ass husband (occasional Geekbox guest Patrick “Mr. Karen Chu” Joynt) is away. And, you know, she declined my invitation to turn it into the Puppybox. Enjoy!

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 (69.197.191.222:27015), 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!
