Retooling GeekNights Wednesday
Tonight on GeekNights we talk about GeekNights. Particularly, GeekNights Wednesdays. It's the odd duck of the show, focused not just entirely on the passive consumption of media, but constrained to specific types of media. A meta show! In the news, the Venture Brothers Movie is coming, the original Ken Sugimori Pokemon artwork is on the Internet, Makoto Shinkai's Suzume is in theaters, and there is some important meta information about this movie.
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider when to bail, hit da bricks, or be "out" of something. In the news, loud pipes don't save lives, the new R211 subway cars were unveiled, and what happened in Florida was preventable.
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider... unfinished business. In the news, Otakon may not survive COVID, and the NWHL has to deal with BrStl Sprts drama as their bubble starts to fall apart even as they were making a big move streaming their games on Twitch.
Why aren't there good Monday shows?
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the reason why we have such trouble coming up with good Monday show ideas. We almost do a show about printers and printing along the way.
In the news, Rym runs fast enough to stave off the inexorable advance of age another year, Carnegie Hall doesn't have modern ticketing technology, chip-enabled credit cards in the US are about as effective as the goggles, often compromised from simple POS malware, a foldable phone appears, bikes are faster than cars, and we'll be live at PAX Unplugged!
If you want to join Rym and Scott Enforcing at PAX East, applications are open!
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.
Tech News Not-Roundup
Tonight on GeekNights, we don't do a tech news roundup, but we basically do a tech news roundup based on suggested topics from the listener. We will possibly alter the format of the Monday show, so let us know your thoughts. In the news, Intel Launches 8th Generation Core CPUs, back up your files, and IOS 11 has a cop mode.
The GeekNights Forum is amazing, and you should join it! We will be back for our 42nd PAX Panel in a couple weeks! The next GeekNights book club book is The Fifth Season!

The Show About What to do the Show About
Tonight on GeekNights, Twitter plays GeekNights as we do a show about what we should do a show about, seeded with suggestions from the listener. In the news, a legend of a man, sorely needed in these times, passes away. We'll miss you, Muhammad Ali. AI is learning to play Atari games like a human child would. Old people have no idea what we're on about, but Hillary Clinton's campaign went a little Bulworthy.
The GeekNights Patreon goes on with the second remastered beta pre-release episode of GeekNights, complete with commentary. Our amazing original Tshirt is on Amazon, and a new one is on the way.
