Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the concept of ghosts. From haunted bunk beds to haunted paintings, Fate Magazine to ghost stories, ghosts are actually a fascinating subject. In the news, The Amazing Randi has passed away, Artzie Music was destroyed by copyright, the Twitch Copyright Strike Apocalypse has resumed with far more dire consequences than last time, and it is a terrible idea to require a license to stream playing a game.
Tonight on GeekNights, we revive the ancient "How to Not Suck" series with an episode on baking. How to not suck at baking. It's a rising hobby during the quarantine. In the news, PAX is not currently canceled, with further clarification in the Reddit, Dune (2020) appears to actually be happening, and Rym and Emily's Disney animation podcast continues!
Tonight on GeekNights, still recording remotely we consider the concept of insurance. Please, if you have better Thursday show ideas throw them at us! In the news, Jojo Rabbit (2019) is extremely good, apparently Henry Kissinger is indeed a member of the Harlem Globetrotters, and Netflix Castlevania is definitely worth continuing.
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the fascinating topic of cleaning. It is Thursday, after all. In the news, the Oscars included a pleasant surprise despite our general feelings on award shows, stay away from cruise ships, never trust a doctor who believes in homeopathy, watch The Good Place (and then read Surface Detail), vote for Elizabeth Warren in the Democratic presidential primary, and vote for literally every Democrat in every race in the general election no matter what.
Tonight on GeekNights, we talk about mailing things to places. Packages, letters, even the GeekNights Tshirts before we put them on Amazon! In the news, Rym bought a new mattress from the Internet (following on from our show on beds), a bunch of SMS messages from a long time ago just got sent to everybody, the American off-year election went very well (potentially bringing the Equal Rights Amendment back to the table), and we will be live at PAX Unplugged teaching three games and teaching you to take your damn turn!
Tonight on GeekNights, Scott having just moved, we consider the logistics of moving. We did talk about this on a GeekNights episode from 2006, but we are older and wiser in this terrifying new age. In the news, the Blizzard situation continues to evolve, the impeachment of Donald Trump becomes more urgent by the hour, we learn about the Sergeant at Arms, all utilities should be nationalized, and we hope you enjoyed the meteor showers.
