This week, Anne and Bill are joined by the ghost of Alexander Hamilton, who sits in to give his opinion about the
musical based on his life, the BOOK about the musical about his life, and Anne’s dreams about political upheaval + sexy badgers. Also this week: the (great) new Ratchet & Clank PS4 game, The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Day of the Tentacle and the surprisingly-informative JAS Townsend & Sons historical re-enactors’ catalogue.
In The Geek Week News In Review: The
Doctor Strange trailer, the new Japanese Godzilla trailer, will the new Star Trek be a seasonal anthology?, who are Rey’s parents?, the potential horror of a live-action Pokemon movie, Hollywood’s attempt to whitewash (and then yellow-face) the Ghost in the Shell movie, and Andrew Jackson getting booted off the $20 bill.

Burns & Allen Special #1 - Visiting the Art Gallery [ 29:45 | 40.86 MB ] Play Now
Anne’s away this week, so instead of leaving everyone high and dry, Bill’s posting an episode from one of his favorite old-timey radio shows, The George Burns & Gracie Allen Show. (Star Trek fans may remember that Burns’ & Allens’ namesakes – George & Gracie – saved the world with some nasty hardcore whale-fucking).
This is what happens when Bill is left in command of the podcast. TUNE IN NEXT WEEK FOR SOME RIDICULOUS MID-FIFTIES RADIO SCI-FI (maybe).
We’re celebrating the start of spring with LOTS of body care talk, though we eventually get around to yakking about
Pee Wee’s Big Holiday, Lucky Penny, Stardew Valley, Delilah Dirk, Playstation Vue and the I Was There Too podcast (and Jenette Goldstein’s bra shop), too.
In The Geek Week News In Review: Indy 5 is a
go, PS4.5 incoming?, Microsoft’s GDC titty duplicity, no more Shamus at Sea World, Teen Wolf got turned into a speed bump, and how for as little as $13 million, Castle Bran in Transylvania can be yours.
