Geek Speak 14: Alan Smithee

BRB Geek Speak returns for another episode full of geekiness, unicorns, pixels and, well, butts. Unfortunately, we are still down a Monica, but we searched long and hard (not really, just down the corridor from Alex, really) and found a wonderful guest in Julia! She works in the gaming industry and has also helped out on many BRB events, and we have a very special place reserved in our hearts for her Orlesian readings. So join Lauren, Julia and Alex as they prattle on about:

  • Dragon Age: Inquisition’s latest DLC The Descent and other Dragon Age related news
  • Exploding Kittens card game and Julia’s unfortunate and fast demise
  • Realise Minas Tirith Indiegogo campaign
  • Inside Out
  • Lauren has suffered through Pixels and you can read her review of the movie here. Beware of minor spoilers!
  • Lauren also speaks to Mike Bithell about Volume, a special interview for our listeners!
  • Nemesis Games (book 5 of Expanse series) by James S.A. Corey, also soon a show on SyFy!
  • Armada by Ernest Cline and you can read Alex’s review of the book here
  • You’re Never Weird On the Internet (Almost) by Felicia Day
  • The Palace Job by Patrick Weekes
  • We talk about cosplay (thanks to King William of Butt-topia for the suggestion!)
  • For your cosplaying needs check out:
  • Alex’s living room has become a home to a TV switching ghost that likes naked Owen Wilson… yeah, we are scared too!
