Scam Conventions

Tonight on GeekNights, in light of the ridiculous disaster that was Universal Fancon, following in many ways in the footsteps of DashCon or Fyre Festival, we consider the terrible ripeness of a time of actual scam conventions. TL;DR: never preregister for a first-year con not run by a major brand targeting more than a thousand attendees.

In the news, Ford is dropping most of its car brands, highlighting a possibly seismic shift in the American car market, and the Golden State Killer was allegedly just arrested.

Socks

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider socks. We care more about them than you might expect (unless you realize how old we actually are). In the news, we have a history of NESticle, it turns out knuckle cracking is shockingly complex, and no one knows how to walk anywhere.

We will be live at PAX East, and are continuing both GeekNights Presents Utena and Judge Anime by its Cover!

Camp

Tonight on GeekNights, we discuss the very American (and even then only for certain segments of America) idea of Summer Camp. Band Camp, Day Camp, Science Camp, and the like also fit in. In the news, J-Bars are tools of the devil, the world of mapping and navigation data is complex, and you can help US Democrats win Texas in multiple ways that require your time and skills rather than your money.

Stranger Things

Tonight on GeekNights, we review Stranger Things. In case you're wondering how Rym convinced Scott to watch this amazing show, he didn't. This is a Rym and Emily special! We thoroughly enjoyed this show, and have since moved on to finish the second season. It perfectly evokes the era in which it is set, and is definitely worth watching.

Snacks

Tonight on GeekNights, brother may I have some snäcks. We talk about snacks, distinguished from meals by their lack of a schedule. You all seem to love these food shows, so here we go. Never forget doo dads. In the news, Funko pops have an IPO that goes about as well as one could have expected. (Spoiler: expectations were... unreasonable).

Desks

Tonight on GeekNights, we talk about desks. If you have a desk job, you probably spent a huge amount of time at one. If you have a desktop computer, it's probably under your desk. Desks. In the news, Twitter now has too many characters in addition to having too many nazis, and this person was almost definitely lying. Also, get your flu shot.

We released both our PAX West 2017 panel - The Rage of the Quitter - and our first new episode of Judge Anime By Its Cover on youtube! Notice it's two channels: Rym and Scott.

Souvenirs

Tonight on GeekNights, we talk a bit about souvenirs. In other news, I hope you voted in the primaries if you could. There are two power seeking coalitions in the US, so if you can vote, you have to join one of them. Uranus Opens And Closes Every Day To Let Out Planet’s Solar Wind.
