The Geekwave Episode 8: Star Wars Hype Train

Episode 8 of The Geekwave has a lot of Star Wars in it. So if you don’t like Star Wars…

Wait, why are you listening to this podcast?

All jest aside, though, we talk about things other than Star Wars. Like our big Halo 5 Pre-Launch Party on Monday. And the big League of Legends World Championship Viewing Party at the Megaplex Theater next Saturday. Both of which we’re doing with the UofU chapter of TeSPA, who’s website you can find here. That’s also where you can buy tickets to the viewing party (and the deal for TeSPA members is good enough that if you’re not a member, you should be.)

Other events happening this week:

Tonight at 5pm in the Library is the Heroes of the Storm Opening Social.

Tomorrow at 12:30pm is a Hearthstone Student Association Round-Robin Tournament.

Next Friday is Wear a Costume To School Day (Also known as the closest school day to Halloween.) We’ll be doing a Photo Contest for sweet prizes on our Facebook page!

The Geekwave interviews Nolan Bushnell

Thanks to the awesome folks at the Alumni Association and in honor of Utah Homecoming 2015, we had the amazing chance to interview Nolan Bushnell, founder of Atari and UofU Alumni. We talk to him about his time at the U, some memories of Utah and Atari, and what he’s working on now. But you don’t want to hear from us: Listen to the man himself on Episode 6 of The Geekwave.
