Geek to Geek Cast S1E25 – Gaming for Non-Gamers

Just press play below to listen to this episode: In this episode: After getting a question from a listener about how to get their spouse to play games, it got us thinking. There are a whole lot of people out there who don’t consider themselves gamers. But almost everyone plays games thanks to smartphones. So why don’t they identify as gamers? Is it because they were never introduced to them? Is is a negative cultural stereotype? One of the biggest hurdles is simply the controller.  The number of buttons and the layout are super intimidating. Our suggestion is to introduce

The Comic Box – Episode 10 – San Diego Comic-Con Super Spectacular!

This week on The Comic Box: It’s all SDCC, all the time! In this very special episode, Liam joins me as we go through all the new comic-related trailers that came out of this year’s Comic Con. We argue over whether the Suicide Squad should even happen, Liam rustles his beard right in my frakkin microphone (for the ladies), and even the man’s stomach weighs in. It’s opinion? We have no idea. We don’t speak stomach. It sure was loud, though. One other thing: due to my limited storage space (I ain’t rich, kids), this may have to do it

Geek Fitness Health Hacks 004 – Harry Potter and Heart Disease (How I lost 155 lbs)

Just press play to listen to this episode! I used to weigh 310 pounds. I was unhealthy, pre-diabetic (at least), and completely sedentary. I hated moving, being sweaty, working hard at anything, sports, and pretty much anything that didn’t involve being inside and staring at a screen. Then, 6 months after I got married, I went on a delayed honeymoon to Disney World and was able to get into a soft-opening of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. It was magical…until I could just barely fit into the Dueling Dragons harness, and the attendant sent me off to what I

S1E16 – E3 2016 And The Warcraft Movie – “E3, E3, E3…Zug Zug”

E3 2016 + The Warcraft Movie (Non-Spoilers) In this episode: E3! Void has spent every second of his spare time this week watching E3 press conferences and compiling the news for people like Beej who want to know but don’t have the time (or patience in Beej’s case) to watch the feeds. This year’s E3 is a mixed-bag, but there is a lot of good stuff being talked about. There are no “blow up the internet” announcements, but we do finally get to see progress and gameplay from titles that have only been previously announced, such as The Legend of

Health Hacks 005

If any one of us is out of shape physically, we often seek outside help for it. We go to the doctor, we hire a personal trainer, or we pop some ibuprofen or start eating more veggies. But when we are out of shape mentally, there’s such a disconnect about seeking help. What’s the difference in seeking out a counselor’s help for anxiety as opposed to a personal trainer’s help with obesity? Why not use an app to practice meditation just the same as you’d download one when you’re ready to start Couch-to-5K? It took me years to finally seek
