Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the concept of calendars. There was a time when people had physical ones made of paper. Weird right? In the news, Scott's sort of into Rubik's Cubes, you should honestly watch the impeachment of Donald Trump, hackers used TeamViewer to attempt the poisoning of an entire Florida town, Gina Carano is rightly dropped from Star Wars, and New York is killing people by allowing sports to have live audiences.
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider hair. We did a show once on shaving back in 2005, when we first switched to safety razors, but we never talked about head hair more generally. Yes, this is a Thursday. How could you tell?
In the news, Scott's doing the Advent of Code, check out the Floppy Emu Model C, the movie industry just changed forever, and we found the rocket booster we lost in the 60s. Also, Joe Biden won the presidency by a historic and growing margin.
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the concept of ghosts. From haunted bunk beds to haunted paintings, Fate Magazine to ghost stories, ghosts are actually a fascinating subject. In the news, The Amazing Randi has passed away, Artzie Music was destroyed by copyright, the Twitch Copyright Strike Apocalypse has resumed with far more dire consequences than last time, and it is a terrible idea to require a license to stream playing a game.
Tonight on GeekNights, we revive the ancient "How to Not Suck" series with an episode on baking. How to not suck at baking. It's a rising hobby during the quarantine. In the news, PAX is not currently canceled, with further clarification in the Reddit, Dune (2020) appears to actually be happening, and Rym and Emily's Disney animation podcast continues!
Tonight on GeekNights, still recording remotely we consider the concept of insurance. Please, if you have better Thursday show ideas throw them at us! In the news, Jojo Rabbit (2019) is extremely good, apparently Henry Kissinger is indeed a member of the Harlem Globetrotters, and Netflix Castlevania is definitely worth continuing.
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the fascinating topic of cleaning. It is Thursday, after all. In the news, the Oscars included a pleasant surprise despite our general feelings on award shows, stay away from cruise ships, never trust a doctor who believes in homeopathy, watch The Good Place (and then read Surface Detail), vote for Elizabeth Warren in the Democratic presidential primary, and vote for literally every Democrat in every race in the general election no matter what.
