Upon the 17th day of January in the Year of Our Lord 2015, Andrew availed himself of his gallant, mechanical steed of Japanese engineering and hied him to Marscon of legend. Quoth he, “I shall take upon myself to speak to comedy rock star Mikey Mason.” Tracy was sick.
In this podcast episode, Mikey reveals his RPG player voice, takes on the persona of “Pedantic Man,” and gives a fantastic feminist rant about strip clubs (it’s not what you’re thinking!). Yeah… that’s just a teensy bit of the hilarity that ensues. Trust me.
In which, Andrew and Tracy sit down with Sarah Wilde to discuss the girl who is arguably the most influential female figure in geek fandom in the past twenty years. I say “sit down” because Andrew doesn’t get many words in edgewise. From the “Spike or Angel” question, to complex plot twists and the universality of the growing up experience portrayed in the show, Sarah and Tracy cover most of it.

Our guest, Shane McNulty
In which, Andrew and Tracy have a surprisingly broad-ranging conversation with Shane McNulty, organizer of Norfolk, VA’s Can’t Stop the Serenity event, “Big Damn Shindig.” We discuss why geeks should be involved with charities, what’s so great about Equality Now and the local Samaritan House and Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia, and the effect of bullying within the geek community. That’s all on top of discussing Firefly, the greatest Joss Whedon fanboy moment that never happened, and how to put on a Browncoat event, as well as how much easier events are with entertainers like Mikey Mason.

Remember that HUGE surprise that I’ve been giddy about all weekend? Well, it turns out Mikey Mason, our favorite comedy geek and an occasional guest blogger here on Therefore I Geek, has decided to let us leak a preview of his brand new, not-yet-released album, Dodecahedron. The album officially drops on July 14, so you’re just about a week away from being able to pick up a copy of your very own, but you can preorder the album now and get three tracks immediately, as well as bonus content after the release that isn’t available anywhere else!
Needless to say, Andrew and I are incredibly pleased at the opportunity to share this exclusive preview–especially since we got to hear a few excerpts live at the Big Damn Shindig, Norfolk VA’s Can’t Stop the Serenity event a couple of weekends ago.
