Geek to Geek Podcast
About This Show
Being an adult is hard. So is being a geek. And an adult geek? Well, that's where we come in.
We're Beej and Void, and we've got more than a little experience in that area. We are life-long geeks and have managed to bring our geekery with us into adulthood and still be somewhat functional adults--you know, with families and jobs and that sort of thing.
We don't do toxic, and we don't do nerdrage. Our views on geekdom are positive and optimistic, and we believe that the most important part of being a geek is the people you get to geek out with.
Tightly focused discussions on specific topics drive the show. Striving to illustrate that it is entirely possible to be mega-geeks and responsible adults, we want to be your friend and create and open and positive geek community for everyone.
We started this podcast because we really want there to be a safe, welcoming, positive geek community for everyone. We want to talk about stuff we love, make friends, and most importantly, make sure that everyone feels appreciated and that there's a place for them. So whether your love is video games, comic books, movies, TV, fitness, computers and tech, or whatever else...come geek out with us. Let's be friends.

S2E27 - Final Fantasy XIV Has It’s MMO Claws In Us - “Hot Tub Tuesdays”
2 days ago
FFXIV Has It’s MMO Claws In Us In this episode: Final Fantasy is one of our favorite series. We play them and replay them, and recently, FFXIV grabbed both of us and sank it's grubby little MMO claws right into us. While neither of us tend to be big MMOers these days, FFXIV has so much going for it that we really can't resist it. FFXIV is in full swing for both of us in the middle of the summer gaming slump. We’ve been playing at pretty much the exclusion to all else for the past few weeks. Hear us geek out over an MMO for the first time in a long time! We talk about what makes this MMO special (aside from it being Final Fantasy), what it does right in terms of modernizing the genre, and the kinds of things that keep us coming back. The mechanics feel different and polished in a way that other MMOs just feel spammy. We talk about the characters that draw us in, how it's more of a Final Fantasy game first than an MMO, and how despite neither of us having played the 1.0 version, that we feel the game has a history and story that's rich and we're a part of. We discuss different classes like Red Mage and Bard and how the length of time we've played and when we started has influenced how we feel about the game. Beej plays for the social aspect, while Void plays for the story, but they can meet in the middle and see the value in how it all ties together and makes a fantastic game that everyone can enjoy. Next week, we are going to dig in on the expansions, Heavensward and Stormblood, so if you have any questions or comments, please email, tweet, or send them to us on the subreddit! We want to talk about what you want to hear about! Weekly Geekery Beej got back to running, got hooked on mobile Final Fantasy games (FFV and VI), and made some bad trampoline decisions.
