G33K Out with Angie Fiedler Sutton
About This Show
We're all geeky about something.
In this podcast, I interview geeky people about geeky things. The goal is to focus on the culture of geek media (e.g., comics, television shows, movies, gaming, online media, science, etc.), enjoying our obsessions while still managing to look at them through a critical lens. Listen as we talk about why people do what they do and how they got where they are.
The podcast started as an offshoot of my master's thesis (also called G33K Out), and goes into why people do what they do and how they got there.
And now it's time to g33k out.Read more »
