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.Read more »

Online Communities 2018 In this episode: We check in on online communities in 2018 from how we’re feeling about them to how we interact with them day to day. We started blogging and this podcast for the community. To make friends. To bring people together over things we love. And while the communities and their platforms may have changed, we may be getting back to a more personal era of online talk. How we use online communities has changed a lot over the past ten years. We go through what it means to be a Redditor or a lurker, making friends on different platforms, and even how we balance the need for calm in places with still wanting to know about people's lives and how things affect them as people. Beej discusses how things that are forums-based bring out the worst in him because of his old Bad Internet Habits. Void talks, again, about how you need to unsubscribe from all of the default Subreddits. Then you can find ones you like. We discuss Slack and Discord, and how they are iterative takes on IRC from back in the day. Void still thinks Discord is all about voice. Beej tries to convince him it's not. Void uses Slack for play, but not for work. He's backwards! Beej got wild hair and set up a Geek to Geek Patreon at https://www.patreon.com/geektogeekcast Weekly Geekery We’ve both been sucked into MMOs so hear us catch up on FFXIV, World of Warcraft, and Elder Scrolls Online.
