The Geekwave Episode 14: The Dark Web

In this episode:

  • Solar attempts to record the episode while playing Hearthstone.
  • Logan and Lee take a nostalgia trip over Samurai Jack.
  • Lee gets scammed into selling a testicle.
  • Solar and Logan go halfsies on Star Wars Ice Cream.
  • Logan finds out how much his kidney is worth.
  • Solar gives horrendously wrong information about Bitcoin. (For the record, as of right now 1 bitcoin equals $362.51, not $10 like Solar seems to think.)

 

Be More Christ-like

CAMPUS

Helpful thought-food for new freshmen at today’s Orientation. Good Luck!  We also covered the UofU vs BYU basketball game where one of our players was stuck in the face by a deranged BYU player.  Very un-Christlike stuff.

LOCAL

E-coli outbrake from chicken salad bought from Costco.

NATIONAL

San Bernadino terrorist attack and work related violence sparking a coming change in gun laws and more control.

Remember to breathe.

 

The Late News: Student Solidarity March

Two weeks ago there was a solidarity march on the UofU campus.  Hundreds of people, staff, faculty, and students participated.

They marched for people of color, and equality.

On this podcast, Nathan visits with us. He voiced concerns at the march and shared wisdom and thoughts with us for a while. Professors and faculty were there to hear a wide range of student concerns, from need for more resources to voices that need to be heard.  Students at the U wait to see what action takes place.

UofU football team is out of the playoffs with the loss last weekend.

National News has a world travel alert out due to terror threats.

Special shout out to Nathan for visiting the show today.

 

The Geekwave Episode 12: The Game Awards 2015

The Game Awards are almost here. This is one of Solar’s favorite events of the year, the big award ceremony for all members of the Video Game Industry.

Also in this episode, we talk about the new My Little Pony movie, mini-chainsaws, the new James Bond movie Spectre, and Golden KitKats.

For you audiophiles, we know quality is a little lower than usual this week. Our production room is having issues. We apologize, and hopefully it will be better next week.

We hope to see you all on #selfiewithyourturkey day!
