Geek to Geek Podcast

The Geek to Geek Podcast is the podcast that started it all for me!  I decided to try it out, and it continues to be on my weekly must-listen list.  The content is about games, movies, and books.  The hosts, Beej and Void, are really good together.  They are very knowledgeable about the subject matter and often make me laugh. They usually start with their week's topic followed by their weekly geekery.  This is how I first learned about BlaugustReborn.  They always have something new to share.  I love the format of getting to the topic right away and then geeking out about what they've been up to for the week.

I have discovered books to read by listening to them.  The most recent was Dark Matter by Blake Crouch.  It's a science fiction thriller that kept me on the edge of my seat.  Once I got into it, I couldn't put it down.

I also learn about gaming systems, upcoming games, and current games by listening to the podcast.  While I'm not someone who plays games, I am always interested in hearing about new games and game play.  That should come as no surprise since I've spent the last 25 years watching my sons play video games.  In fact, I really enjoy watching game play, but I'm not quick enough to actually enjoy playing myself.  This podcast keeps me up to date with gaming news.

Once in a while, one of the hosts isn't available so they have their wives or kids join them to talk about their interests.  Void's kids did a review of video games and gave their recommendations.  His wife has been on a couple of times: once talking about her passion of knitting (really interesting!) and the other time reviewing Jurassic World which Void hadn't seen yet.  Beej's wife is a skilled woodworker and shared her passion for her craft during a podcast.  She also organizes fan events and shared strategies for successfully planning these events.  While the dynamic changes when the hosts change, the podcasts with the substitute hosts are lots of fun!

The Geek to Geek Podcast is part of the Geek to Geek Podcast Network.  You may want to try some other podcasts on the network. 

  • Geektitude has lots of reviews about movies.  Joe Hogan is the host and most recently talks about Comic-Con International 2018.
  • Tea Time with Katie & Chelsea gives a female point of view.  This week they're talking about the book Crazy Rich Asians which has been made into a movie.  Last week was especially interesting when they had a guest and discussed LGBTQIA+ Media.
  • is Beej's reworking of his blog and The GeekFitness Podcast.  His passion for fitness, health, and wellness is always a great motivator.
I hope you try out this podcast as well as the others on the Geek to Geek Network.  I'm sure you'll find something that interests you and that will make you laugh!
