We are kicking this thing off with a blast. We’ve been talking with the administration and owner of the Life of Dad network about rebooting the Geek Dads podcast.
There was a short run Geek Dads Podcast back in 2016 with Art. He got busy with other things and his interview-based podcast fell by the wayside. Chris, Andy, and Allan Began talks in late 2019 to reboot this podcast with a conversation based podcast. After lots of email tag with LOD’s founder Tom and clearing with the admins of GeekDads, we were finally given the approval to launch at the beginning of summer 2020.
The world was a mess. COVID affected every aspect of life for so many of us that the idea of the podcast faded into the background for a time. In October 2020 we circled back and made a plan to launch.
This inaugural episode is to get to know your hosts a little. We are from all over the world. Chris is currently living in Oklahoma, Andy is in Canada, and Allan is our resident Scotsman. We’ve all got kids and we are all geeky about something!
We also talk the PS5 and Xbox Series X launch. Playstation is reporting that they are selling more ps5’s at a faster rate than they did the ps4! Despite having issues with production due to Covid. As predicted scalpers are buying out stock and selling for 2-3 times as much.
The Mandalorian Season 2 is firing on all cylinders! This is what the Star Wars reboots of ep 7-9 should have been. The characters are great, the production is great, the writing, direction, acting … If Jon Fauvre makes anything else, I’m buying that stock because most everything he has touched in the past 15 years seems to turn to gold (Cowboys and Aliens excluded).
