Upcoming Topics in October, November and December 2015

Season three of the Educating [Geeks] and the E[G] Drinking Game podcasts is coming to a close. We are closing out the year with a trip to everyone’s favorite Doctor, an iconic 1990s anime and the second half of Ocarina of Time. We’ll also be battling for our survival, celebrating a 40th anniversary and hanging out with some Wookies around the yule log. We hope you will do your “homework” and join in the conversation.

[Andrea] Geeks Out – Drinking Supplies

As you know (or may not know, SURPRISE!), part of our “education” here on Educating Geeks is to create drinking game rules based on the topic we are discussing. Besides learning new things, one of my all-time favorite hobbies, I love making the drinking game rules. One of the main reasons is that I enjoy the occasional drink (or two, or three, or… .). This year, much to my chagrin, the drunkest of holidays, St. Patrick’s Day, falls on a Tuesday – March 17, 2015.

To be clear, I am not Irish – I am Welsh (just like our fearless leader, Alice!). St. Patrick’s Day has no special meaning to me, only presents an opportunity to bust out some awesome geek glassware and tasty concoction. I love any occasion to bust out a delicious ale or yummy gin and tonic. So to honor the most sacred of drinking festivities, I searched all through the interweb for the best of the best in geek drinking supplies.

Without further ado….

Fan Fest Spotlight on David Ramsey and Ben Browder

Phoenix Comicon Fan Fest 2014 kicked off their first annual event December 12-14 at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, AZ. The event focused on comic books, costuming, kids, and actors. Some notable guests at the event were David Ramsey, Ben Browder, Linda Blair, Colin Baker, and Paul McGann.

At the time of Fan Fest, I had never seen Arrow, but had heard great things about the show as well as David Ramsey. And as a super Stargate SG1 fan, Ben Browder’s panel was a must. So, I buckled in for some good panel Q&A time on Saturday.
