All our Jobs

Tonight on GeekNights, we talk about all the different jobs we've each had over the years. Do-nothing jobs, fake jobs, shady jobs: every job. In other news, we're going to go see The Hateful Eight in the correct format, our string of train stories continues, and "hoverboards" are bad news.

The November Q&A Special is up for our Patrons, we'll be live at PAX South 2016, and the original GeekNights T-Shirt is back on the shelves!

Thanksgiving

Tonight on GeekNights, the Patrons make us dance, and we talk about, by popular demand, Thanksgiving and French Fries. Dude made a sweet castle, but has to tear it down. Rym's playing a long form GMR game of Civ V. We're still reading the Wheel of Time, and now we know what the deal is with Balefire.

Josephine Fu

Tonight on GeekNights, we have Josephine Fu, Game Producer at Date Nighto, here to talk about their latest project - Hustle Cat - and what it's like to work for a small game studio. We also return to our old "Profiles in Geek" shtick with a deep interview on her anime preferences, hobbies, and all that fun stuff. Hustle Cat is on Kickstarter, and has just ONE WEEK left to go!

GeekNights is now on Patreon!

GeekNights T-Shirts have been re-released!

Halloween

Tonight on GeekNights, we talk about Halloween (we skip talking about apples because we've talked about apples before). In the news, Kickstarter became a Public Benefit Company, and we're still reading the Wheel of Time books. We're also coming up on the 10th anniversary of GeekNights!

Cookies

Cookies are delicious, and they are the topic of tonight's GeekNights. We also talk about our NASes. The Ashley Madison hack raises many complex issues, which are being discussed in the GeekNights forum. Athletes are paid a lot, but are they overpaid? (This will be covered in depth in one of our PAX Panels - Sports are Games).

Belts

Belts are the fascinating topic of tonight's GeekNights. Lately we wear these things. But first, you would do well to share your salaries with your friends. You will never escape ads, which are largely fraudulent, and may not even be morally justifiable.

Don't forget to come see a bunch of smart people (and also us) at the Primest of PAXes.
