Sunday, March 14th, 2021

The Covid Pandemic is now over a year along now, and in that year, people have discovered new methods to help alleviate the stress and boredom. The Geek Salad crew gives a brief overview of some of their new entertainment discoveries in the uncomfortably titled episode 207: Quarantine Quickies.

Join Andy, Mike, Joe, Katherine, and original co-host Mike as they bring up some quick topics that wouldn't really be big enough for full episodes on their own. From new podcasts to new TV shows, they bring up a bunch of options to occupy your free time.

Episode 196: What We Do In the Quarantine

Monday, June 29th, 2020

To say that 2020 has been a difficult year would be an obscene understatement .The world is burning, society is in upheaval, and there is still a global pandemic that is keeping most of the population isolated at home…so why not have the Geek Salad team try to have some laughs about it?

On this episode, the gang discusses what they’ve been doing to keep themselves entertained during this difficult time.  Between movies, TV, board games, video games, music, and other personal improvement projects, Katherine, Mike, Joe, Andy (and joined by Todd and Jim) lay bare how they’ve been passing the time!

Sunday, June 14th, 2020

Twenty years ago, one of the greatest gaming consoles ever made, the PlayStation 2, was released. To honor the birth of this gaming legend, the Geek Salad crew is back with the second part of their giant-sized tribute episode, episode 195: PlayStation 2 - Electric Boogaloo (part 2).

So re-join Andy, Mike, Joe, Katherine, Todd, and Katherine's husband Joe, as they go over some picks from their personal lists of favorites that had not been covered already in part 1. From popular fare like Silent Hill 2 and Burnout 3, to lesser known titles like War of the Monsters and Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Chaos Bleeds, there are plenty of fun titles to be enjoyed.

Episode 195: PlayStation 2 - Electric Boogaloo (part 1)

Sunday, June 7th, 2020

Twenty years ago one of the most popular gaming consoles of all time was released. Over it's 13 years of production (Seriously!), thousands of games were released which kept us going back to that dual-shock controller again and again. To discuss some of their favorites, Geek Salad has returned with episode 195: PlayStation 2 - Electric Boogaloo. However, as the discussion ended up being quite extensive, this episode ended up being split into two parts.

Join Andy, Mike, Joe, Katherine, Todd, and Katherine's husband Joe, as they go over the Facebook and Twitter feedback on this topic. Turns out lots of people had favorite games from this system. From classic titles like Jak & Daxter to more obscure titles like Psychonauts, see what some of our friends and family said were their favorites. Then come back for part 2 where they discuss some of their own lists of favorite games.

Episode 172: The Wishbook of Shattered Dreams

Saturday, December 22nd, 2018

It’s the Holiday Season! And the Geek Salad gang is sippin’ on eggnog and reminiscing about Christmases past….most specifically what they circled in their favorite department store Christmas wish books….and what they did (or didn’t) get under the tree in their respective years! 

 

So gather around the fireplace and ask yourself one question:  “How much would any of this stuff that I demanded from Santa actually end up costing my parents?”  The answer will make you weep….

 

Also, stick around for a quick wrap up of this interminable year of 2018, including a discussion about The Avengers: Endgame trailer!

Join the team as they discuss their first introduction to the Geek Salad audience as well as discussing the biggest geek moments and movements of the past 10 years!  Included in the conversation are topics ranging from Disney buying up every property we care about, the mainstream popularity of cosplay, and the sexist, racist, shout factory hellscape that the internet has become!

Episode 152: MU-TH-UR is a Bitch!

Thursday, October 26th, 2017

In space, no one can hear you scream….that goes double if you’re watching any of the “Alien” movies past 1986’s “Aliens.” 

 

So to celebrate Geek Salad’s 10th Annual Halloween show, Mike, Katherine, Joe, and Andy sit down to discuss the horror that is the “Alien” movie series.

 

From Ridley Scott’s tense 1979 entry into the series, to the clunky schlock-fests in the “Alien vs. Predator” series, and back to Scott’s navel-gazing into the prequels, we’ve got you covered!

Episode 151: Nintendon’t!

Saturday, October 14th, 2017

Video game technology has certainly come a long way since its beginnings, and along that path, there have also been a large number of missteps. So break out your Atari Jaguars and Nintendo Virtual Boys as Geek Salad breaks down some video game fails in Episode 151: Nintendon't!

Join Andy, Mike, Joe, and Katherine along with special guest Other Joe, Katherine's husband, and a triumphant return by original co-host, Mike C. They are pulling out all the stops to remember all the games and systems that brought us pain and misery through the years. Whether it was hours upon hours of dying in the original NES game of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles simply because my favorite turtle is Raphael, or trying to work out what kinds of drugs the designer of the Nokia N-Gage was on, they tackle the most memorable failures.

In 1962, the world was first introduced to a comic book superhero that was quite unique for the time, and who has since gone on to become one of the most popular superheroes ever: Spider-Man!

In honor of this, Geek Salad is proud to bring you episode 128: Uncle Ben Dies Again... and Again... and Again...

Listen along as Andy, Mike, Joe, and Katherine go through Spider-Man's story, throughout all forms of media.

Episode 123: Old Men Sitting In Caves Distributing Swords

Friday, January 29th, 2016

It’s dangerous to go alone….take this!!!

 

…and with those words, the children of the 80’s blew into their golden cartridges, prayed that the included battery saved their game data, and went on their quest to save the Princess Zelda.

 

Now, Mike, Andy, and Joe discuss the enduring legacy that is the quest of Link in the Legend of Zelda games.  They discuss the triumphs, like the original game, Ocarina of Time, and Twilight Princess, to the failures of Majoro’s Mask, Link’s Adventure, and the CD-i games that were so awful, they were scrubbed from the Zelda continuity.

 

Then, hang out as the boys discuss the latest “Suicide Squad” trailer.

 

Then, buckle in for the depressing third of the show, where the gang discusses the recent deaths of Glen Frey, Alan Rickman, and David Bowie…
