Hello, my beautiful nerds and geeks, and happy May the 4th! We hope you all have been well, and are doing your best to stay sane during these crazy times! We wanted to take a quick second to fill y’all in on some new stuff going on with the podcast. If you have questions about any of the following items, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us on social media!
Our “Evil Villains” month is officially underway! For those of you just joining us, I’ll give you a quick rundown: Each week in April, Ted and I will discuss some of our favorite bad guys from popular mediums. Here’s the breakdown of episodes you can look forward to…
I explained in my previous article that I was starting a tutorial series on getting up and running with your very own podcast. So here I am to deliver! In Part 1 of this series, I’ll be giving you some advice and guidance on the very early stages of your podcast development: The “Planning” phase. As I illustrated previously, I am definitely not the most authoritative figure on podcasting. However, I do feel like I’ve learned a lot of valuable lessons during our 3 year tenure, and would love to impart some potentially beneficial wisdom onto those of you considering starting your own show. So let’s get started!
The world of podcasting is an interesting place, as you can imagine, for both producers and listeners alike. Since this audio medium is still relatively new, it’s constantly evolving, especially with it being a part of internet content. A big contribution to the evolution of podcasts has been its insane growth in popularity over the last several years. People love listening to podcasts because they’re available at any time, it’s better than radio, and it opens up the possibility for people to have long-form conversations without obnoxious interruptions. And if you’ve been thinking about starting your own podcast, it’s a great time for that as well. Between the costs of getting it off the ground and running, the ease of production, and the bounty of hosting providers, it’s never been easier and more streamlined to host a podcast.
What is up, my fellow nerds? It’s your host here, David Dassau. In lieu of taking this week off from releasing episodes of the podcast, I thought it would be fun to reflect on everything that has transpired in 2019, in an attempt to ready ourselves for the roaring Twenties!
As I have mentioned several times by now during episodes of the podcast, in more ways than one, this year has by far been the craziest for the show.
It is October: the month of Halloween, horror movies, and bad decisions about eating just one more piece of possibly poisoned candy. We at the Geek Garage like to celebrate all of those annual horror traditions, and we know many of you do, too. However… Something has been bothering us.1 While we definitely love horror movies2 we also noticed some, well, let’s say logical inconsistencies.3 Hence, I4 decided to write this post reconsidering some of everyone’s favorite horror icons.Read More
In today’s world of music, in regards to its consumption, there’s not much need for purchasing physical copies of albums anymore. Between digital downloads, streaming services such as Spotify and Apple Music, and CD players being ripped out of every known device they once inhabited, you’re hard-pressed for a reason to purchase a CD or vinyl record. All that being said, I still pre-ordered Blink 182’s new album off Amazon, despite shelling out $10+ a month for Spotify.Read More
Oftentimes hard work, dedication, and persistence goes unnoticed and/or unappreciated. But we don’t work hard and bust our butts for recognition. We do so, because working hard at work worth doing is one of the more noble parts of life.
However, every once in a while, the sky opens up and drops something precious in your lap. And it’s because of all the hard work you’ve put forth, you’re able to recognize this precious thing. This is what has happened to the podcast.
