Episode 34 - May We Geek Again - Rewatch The 100: “Echoes” (4×01) “Heavy Lies the Crown” (4×02) and “The Four Horsemen” (4×03)

February 15, 2018

We're getting ready for Season 5 with our Season 4 rewatch and we have some special guests lined up for you in the coming weeks.

In this episode, Shahin and Jo are joined by Bubs and things get DEEP. Seriously. Jo was just sitting back listening like it was a fucking TED talk or something. 

Special thanks to Shahin for editing and Bubs for listening and taking these lovely summary notes. Jo, as usual, was useless.

Stay tuned afer the pod for a Very Special Shahin Cat Update.

Episode 33 - May We Geek Again - New Year’s Special

January 1, 2018

While we're all waiting for this damn hiatus to end (or at least a trailer to show up), we thought we'd come at your earballs with a mini pod to tide you over.

Featuring

  • Bonsai the amazing humping dog
  • The 100 convention news (Unity Days and ConGeda)
  • The lack of of S5 news
  • A long-ass history lesson from Shahin about technology and human advancement
  • Also a complete lack of irony re: the entire premise of The 100 being based on an amazing AI that decides to kill everyone... 
     ¯_(ツ)_/¯
  • TV shows you should be watching

Hope you kicked 2017 to the curb and we're excited to start a new year of podding with our lovely listeners.
