Author David Barr Kirtley discusses geek culture with guests such as Neil Gaiman (#253), George R. R. Martin (#22), Richard Dawkins (#46), Paul Krugman (#61), Simon Pegg (#39), Margaret Atwood (#94), Neil deGrasse Tyson (#32), and Ursula K. Le Guin (#65). The A.V. Club calls the show, "An informative and impressively in-depth podcast well worth checking out," and io9 lists it as one of "13 Smart Podcasts That Will Feed Your Hunger for Knowledge and Ideas." NPR's earbuds.fm lists the show as a recommended podcast, and CBC Radio writes, "You may not think a podcast about science fiction and fantasy would be the place to go for political insight, but -- it is. Geek's Guide to the Galaxy manages to be more insightful about politics than many pundits." Help crowdfund us at patreon.com/geeks.

Enjoyable Show, Interesting InterviewsThis show casts very wide and very deep to pull in authors and other notable figures in the world of science fiction, fantasy, and from all of geekdom. There are some amazing hits, and the odd, occasional miss. I strongly recommend this podcast.
