Shin Sekai Yori - Final Thoughts

Tonight on GeekNights, Rym and Emily give a full review, as well as some final thoughts, on Shin Sekai Yori - From the New World. It's a solid show with a complex story, good characters, and a surprising ending.

Wolf Children

Tonight on GeekNights, Emily replaces Scott to review Mamoru Hosoda's Wolf Children, which we just saw at the International Children's Film Festival. We also are performing FIVE lectures at Anime Boston 2013!

Conrad Kreyling

Tonight on GeekNights we are happy to have our good friend and Internet celebrity Conrad Kreyling (@konistehrad) as our guest! You may know him from our PAX Dev panel, or perhaps from Johnny Wander. He's an all around awesome dude who also happens to work at Muse Games (who you may know from the recent hit Guns of Icarus: Online).

We talk about how he became an awesome geek and exceptional coder (he's RIT alum: we've known him since he cosplayed as safety barrels cosplaying as Naruto). We hit on Guns of Icarus, MOBAs, video cards, fighting games, Wreck-It Ralph, Looper, James Bond, Tycho's Prostate Rap from PAX East 2011, and Chamisou Original.

Adam Becker - The Freelance Astrophysicist

Tonight on GeekNights, thanks to @konistehrad, we have Adam Becker, the Freelance Astrophysicist, as our guest. We talk a lot about science! Along the way, we hit on the differences between a Computational Cosmologist (which Adam is) and other disciplines, consider the true implications of general relativity at the macro scale, ask "where all the lumpy" came from, consider the perfect pencil, question the Standard Model, wonder about "astro" versus "quantum," and finally get into how one gets into a field like this.

Emily and Rym in Japan

Tonight on GeekNights, Emily and Rym talk about their recent trip to Japan. But first, we consider Torchlight 2 (delayed), Occupy Wall Street doing what they do, and some gaming.

Jared Sorensen

Tonight on GeekNights, straight out of Burning Apocalypse Con, we have Jared Sorensen in the studio to talk about, among other things, Z-Ward, Danish roleplaying, Lacuna 2, conventions, Action Castle, and movies.

Burning Apocalypse Con with Luke Crane

Tonight on GeekNights, in preparation for the upcoming Burning Apocalypse Con, we bring the right honorable Luke Crane on the show to talk about, in case you couldn't guess, Burning Apocalypse Con. We also chat about Greg Stafford's Pendragon, RISK Legacy, and Burning Wheel Gold.

Luke Crane also has a special announcement. In benefit to the medical bills of an important member of the Burning Wheel crew hospitalized with stroke, Luke will be creating a custom Mouse Guard hack, the details of which will be forthcoming.
