How we've changed in 20 years

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider what's changed for us between 1998, 2008, and 2018. It's a meta show about our lives and what we've been up to. In the news, we're playing some PUBG, the World Cup is happening, Koko the gorilla has died, Cannabis is legal in Canada and may soon be in New York.

Indian Food

Tonight on GeekNights, we get ever-increasingly specific in our food-related show topics with some thoughts on Indian food. In the news, we've resolved some recent production pipeline issues, the weird business at the consulates continues, New York City needs New York State's permission to correct the spelling of the Verraz(z)ano Bridge in honor of Verrazzano.

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 sn├Ącks. 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).
