Welcome to Hey You Geeks, a new addition to the GeekDad Podcast Network where geeks of all kinds are invited to celebrate and criticize all that we love with a sense of unapologetic nerdiness. From film to TV, comics to gaming, we’re here to look forwards and back to the greatest and sometimes worst geek culture has to offer. This week on Hey You Geeks, we’re talking about the dark and light sides of comic book movies, the ‘Ghostbusters’ multiverse, ‘Rogue One,’ and more. Continue reading
This week on the podcast, we talk about the perennial geek favorite: the dungeon crawl. Why does the lure of loot always get us back down into those dark, dank catacombs?

We play Wrath of Ashardalon, one of the Dungeons & Dragons Adventure System games, and talk about everything from Descent: Journeys in The Dark to Diablo III. Continue reading

Having been a long time user of various iRig iPhone products I jumped at the chance to try out their new gadget, the iRig MIC Cast. This is a compact microphone on a mini-jack plugs directly into the iPhone to … Continue reading

I’m always keen on new ways to get my kids thinking about technology. They have all enjoyed Rebecca Mayes videogame review songs over the years — in fact I often catch them humming them over breakfast. So I was excited … Continue reading
Running a videogame blog usually involves chasing people to write about games. But one game that I have had no trouble getting prose for is Demon’s Souls. Without any encouragement from me the families, workers and specialist gamers on Game … Continue reading
We at GeekDad don’t like to toot our own horn. Much, anyway. Actually, come to think of it, we really don’t have a problem tooting our own horn. We enjoy it, even. So it gives us all great joy and … Continue reading

I’m a typical geek in that I don’t often get a whole lot of physical exercise, but I’ve so far had the advantage of good genes and a high metabolism. Still, that doesn’t necessarily translate into a healthy lifestyle. So … Continue reading
