The All-New Geek Actually Podcast Ep017 – Podcastaz Wit Attitude

Welcome to the All-New Geek Actually Podcast Episode 17

This week we are a man down as Dave Longo couldn’t join us. Even a man down we still manage to fill an hour and a half with discussions on women in the gaming world, DC Comics latest plans, Marvel Studios separating from Marvel, the Star Wars expanded universe begins again, and why didn’t Evangeline Lily put on the Wasp suit. We also have trailers for Arrow season 4 and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 3. All this plus what we’ve been watching and reading and a review of Straight Outta Compton.

This is the All-New Geek Actually Podcast, the podcast about nothing and everything filtered through the geek perspective.

Hosted by: David McVay and Jaime Lawrence

As always this episode carries an explicit tag due to possible bad language.
