In this special mid-week show, I wanted to provide some much deserved exposure to the first-ever podcast from the talented ladies at Girls-Gone-Geek.com.
Listeners of Stimulated Boredom are undoubtedly familiar with the popular guest appearances of G3 co-creator, Vanessa G on the show.
As a producer of original content myself, I have a lot of love, respect and admiration for those who are passionate about something and who take that commitment to the airwaves and/or web. I have been friends with both Vanessa and Erika for a while now, enjoy their site and thought it would be fun to give their first (and great!) attempt at a podcast some exposure to the SB listeners from around the World. In my opinion, it’s about time they put one together. 🙂
I recorded a brief intro for the benefit of my listeners…however, to those who are visiting StimulatedBoredom.com for the first time from the G3 website (welcome!) and you can stream or download this podcast from all of the available SB channels, as I wanted to make it easier for Erika and Vanessa to have their first show heard.
Beyond that, here is the description of the show from the Girls-Gone-Geek.com website:
“YOU’VE READ ABOUT IT ON OUR FACEBOOK STATUS!
YOU’VE HEARD ABOUT IT ON TV!
IT’S CLINICALLY PROVEN TO INCREASE QUALITY OF LIFE!
YOU’RE DYING FOR THE FILM FRANCHISE!
Not really, but we have mentioned it many times. It is one of the things I look forward to the most in this world. I am referring to our beloved Geek Lunch.
What is a Geek Lunch?
E. and I used to talk about comics over lunch every week, and it has blossomed into Girls Gone Geek. Over time, our circle widened. Now we have the distinct pleasure, once a month, of discussing comics over a tasty meal with some of our favorite humans.
Who are the characters that make up this special occasion?
E. and I are joined by the cosplaying comic shop clerk, Lindsey, the quick-witted CT from Nerd Lunch, the irredeemable Shag from Once Upon a Geek and Firestorm Fan, the enigma known as Choco Taco (you can call him Terry if you’re feeling froggy), and David, who is doing his thesis on war messages in Superman comics during World War II. We gather to celebrate our joyous and occasionally sarcastic love of comics.
Many times after a rough week at work, I will go to Geek Lunch and find my paradigm completely shifted to the realm of geeky goodness and great company. It never ceases to be awesome.
After one of our fine lunches, I was contemplating the conversation. There are some brilliant and festive voices in this bunch, and wondered how it would play as a podcast.
THE WAIT IS OVER!
We wax on and off … and on about DC’s relaunch, the characters we love to hate, and the dollars and sense of digital comics.
Enjoy! We did.”
