What is GeekNights?


GeekNights is a talk radio show for hobbyists, tinkerers, and, for lack of a better word, geeks. Hosts Rym and Scott delve into topics ranging from computer science to Eurogaming, anime to fantasy fiction, indie comics to gadgetry, two nights a week for your listening pleasure.

The show is actually four separate entities:

GeekNights Mondays
Science and Technology

Airing every other Monday, here you'll find science, technology, computing, and everything related. Rym and Scott are both computer professionals, with degrees from the Rochester Institute of Technology in Information Technology and Computer Science respectively, and love nothing more than to impart their knowledge, learning, and baseless editorializing.

GeekNights Tuesdays

Every other Tuesday night, Rym and Scott explore all that is gaming. Videogames, German board games (Eurogames), Role Playing Games, even card games: the dynamic duo cover them all. With reviews, interviews, convention coverage, and more, this is your one-stop-shop for the games you play.

GeekNights Wednedays
Anime, Manga, and Comics

Not-so-humbly beginning at the helm of the largest anime club in the United States, Rym and Scott have moved on to regular live shows at most of the major anime conventions on the East Coast. If you can't catch them live, catch them every other Wednesday night as they review, preview, discuss, and destroy the best (and worst) of anime, manga, and comic books of all stripes.

GeekNights Thursdays
The Lounge

If the main "geekeries" of the Internet today can be broken down into the Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday lines of GeekNights, then where else can the subtler interests of those who wear the mantle "Geek" reside but the final weekly segment of GeekNights? The Lounge is the catch-all, the laid-back end of the week. Anything goes, and nothing is sacred.

Other GeekNights

Along with the Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday shows, the hosts often appear on other shows, including the (in)famous Friday Night Party Line. They also from time to time have interesting asides, extra projects, and all sorts of other shenanigans. If the main four leave you wanting, check out the rest they have to offer.

How is GeekNights made?

GeekNights is recorded live in Long Island City, New York: the show you hear is almost entirely unedited. Rym is on a Shure Beta 87A microphone, and Scott is on a Shure Beta 58A. The studio mix is handled entirely by a Mackie Onyx 1220i, recorded multitrack to a template in Adobe Audition. The editing process is mostly automated, and within a few minutes of the show's recording, it's uploaded and ready to rock.

How can I be a part of GeekNights?

If listening alone isn't enough, then you can take it to the next level by joining the GeekNights Community. There are forums, a laconica server, semi-regular fan chats, and more.

Who are the hosts?

Rym and Scott are two computer professionals from upstate New York with an unhealthy interest in geekly pursuits.
