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 consider how to get rid of stuff (as opposed to buying stuff). In the news, the news is dire and it feels like a lot of things are on a precipice of disaster. But at least we're getting rid of our stuff.
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, we consider sleep, having previously covered beds. In the news, Disney needs to be broken up, another strain of polio has been eradicated, and several US House Republicans are dangerous criminals endangering the very fabric of American democracy. Also, PAX East badges are live!
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.
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider fruit (except apples). In the news, someone figured out how to dispose of old TVs for free, China's bot game is mad weak, Youtube's takedown policies have changed for short musical clips, and Scott has some chair woes. Also, Grapefruit.
