Episode 200: A Million Deaths Are Not Enough for Yueh

Monday, October 19th, 2020

Since 2008, Geek Salad has attempted to bring you the finest (and sometimes drunkest) of nerdly conversations!  Now, we are proud to present our mega-sized 200th episode, this time with the our very special guests; Nik from the Black Girls Do Stuff Too podcast and Thomas from Movies After Work!  Also joining us in a pre-recorded interview is Em from Verbal Diorama!

So while we’ve aged like fine wine, we discuss the things that we used to love that have aged like vinegar.  If it’s a change in attitudes in regards to how we view different ethnic groups or different gender identities, to the poor aging of how our viewpoints in storytelling against things that were popular way back when, we’ve got some really great conversations!

Episode 169: A Graveyard Smash

Monday, October 29th, 2018

Most people will agree that Bela Lugosi, Boris Karloff, and Lon Chaney Jr were not Academy Award quality actors. However, no one can doubt that they cemented their place in Hollywood history by bringing to life some of the most iconic movie monsters of all time. So, to honor their accomplishments, the Geek Salad crew are devoting their 11th annual Halloween episode to discussing the highs and lows of the Universal Monster movies in episode 169: A Graveyard Smash.

Join Andy, Mike, Joe, and Katherine as they chat about Dracula, Frankenstein, The Wolf Man, The Mummy, The Invisible Man, and many more of the Universal monster films of the 1930s and on, including the times when they all met Abbot & Costello. So turn on all the lights, grab a silver cross and lighted torch, and join along with the Geek Salad crew in wondering when they'll get around to making The Detached Duplex of Dracula.

Episode 155: Playbill and Rent’s Excellent Adventure

Sunday, January 21st, 2018

Please refrain from flash photography and make yourself comfortable…Geek Salad is going Broadway with our gala musical episode (disclaimer: outside of a couple of random parts here and there, nobody actually breaks out into song).

 

With the help of guests Matt Jones (i.e.; professional actor type) and Autumn (aka: “Mrs Andy”), as well as a MASSIVE swell of social media feedback, Andy, Mike, Katherine, and Joe cover many different eras and genres of musicals.  While the discussion focuses on the typical Broadway show, the gang does talk about movie musicals, as well as sending Mike and Joe out to Thunderdome to discuss the TV (Stunt) Musical…

 

Due to the length of the discussion, we’ve put together playlists of much of the music discussed on the show.  You can download the Spotify Playlist here

Or check out the YouTube Playlist here

Episode 153: Huked on Fonicks Wrked 4 We

Friday, December 1st, 2017

Honestly, who reads books these days? I thought books ceased to exist once you leave school. Well, apparently not, because the Geek Salad crew is getting all edumacated and literatical as they discuss some of their favorite books, book series, and authors in Geek Salad episode 153: Huked on Fonicks Wrked 4 We.

And if you don't understand the joke for that title, look up the commercials for Hooked on Phonics... or at least listen to Brian Regan's first comedy album.

And before you go thinking that we're just a bunch of weirdos (which we are anyway) for reading books, we got a TON of listener feedback for this episode, so we're obviously not the only one. So whether you've got a letter of admission to Hogwarts, are hiding from the dozen more monsters Stephen King wrote about this year, or just chilling the the Fremen of Dune, pull up a comfy chair and enjoy this latest episode before tackling the latest adventure in Tortall.

Episode 149: Duck Boobs and Bat Nipples

Saturday, September 2nd, 2017

We truly live in a golden age of Comic Book movies.  Much like the second golden age of comics in the early 1980’s, the Nerd Generation has never had such an embarrassment of riches….

 

….however, these are not the movies we’re discussing this week. We’ve again taken the votes of the Geek Salad listening audience and compiled the Top 15 Worst Comic Book Based movies of all time!  Join Joe, Andy, and Mike as they count down the head-scratchingly awful, the “How could they possibly continue to get Fantastic Four wrong???”, and Joe’s all but giving up on the DCEU…at least it’s getting harder for him to defend it!

 

Also, special thanks to David McLain, who lends his voice to discuss his choices for the mediocre movies of the genre!   Do him a solid and check out his book, The Time Traveler’s Resort and Museum, which is available to purchase at Amazon!

Episode 137: Kristmas Karol by Edmund Welles (the Well-Known Dutch Author)

Wednesday, December 21st, 2016

It's Holiday time once again, which also means that it is once again time for Geek Salad to present their annual Holiday episode. This time, they cover Ebenezer Scrooge, Bob Cratchit, and the revenge of Tiny Tim in Geek Salad episode 137: Kristmas Karol by Edmund Welles (the Well-Known Dutch Author).

Ever since it was first published in 1843, hardly any story in history has had as many adaptations as Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. While there have been a number of well-done faithful adaptations, and quite a few fun and different takes on it as well, there have also been more than a few versions that bring out the Scrooge in us. So join Andy, Mike, Joe, and Autumn as they experience both the highs and the lows.

They are also accompanied by three spirits: Jack Daniels, Jim Beam, and Mulled Wine.

Episode 134: Sir Not Appearing in This Podcast

Saturday, October 22nd, 2016

It is known as one of the greatest legends of all time.  It has been called a great epic story!  It’s also been called “Only a Model……”  And on this night, Geek Salad calls it Episode 134:  “Sir Not Appearing in this Podcast.”

 

Join Andy, Mike, Joe, Katherine, and special guest “Also Joe” as they discuss the legend of King Arthur in the realms of popular culture.  From literature, to music, to television, to movies, the Geek Salad team has you covered, including a not so lengthy discussion on “Monty Python and the Holy Grail.”

 

Special thanks to David McLain for his contribution to the historical film renditions of the Arthurian legend.  Help him out by buying his book “The Time Traveler’s Resort and Museum” and contributing to his Indie Go Go page, www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-time-traveller-s-resort-and-museum#/
