The All-New Geek Actually Podcast Ep023 – The Spoilers Awaken


Welcome to the All-New Geek Actually Podcast Episode 23, The podcast about everything and nothing as filtered through our geek perspective.

We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and very happy New Year. This week, after a long delay we finally get to discuss Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Just how many times did Mr. Longo see it?. We also discuss tech for the first time in four years because Mr. McVay no longer works for Apple and Ash Vs Evil Dead comes to it’s season one conclusion, what did we think? And if that wasn’t enough, we also give a summary of the Netflix/Marvel production of Jessica Jones.

Just a warning, this is a spoilerific episode of Geek Actually, if you have not seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens, you might want to delay listening to this show. You have been warned.

Hosted by: David McVay, Dave Longo and Jaime Lawrence

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

On a bitter sweet note, this will be the last podcast produced by the Geek Actually Network for a few months. We are taking extended leave and we are planning the next direction for our shows. We have appreciated all the support you, the fans, have given us over the last 7 years but for the moment we have to just stop and think about our future. I hope you all understand and that this is not goodbye. I love podcasting too much to just stop, this is just a breather and preparation for the shows to come. All shows being produced by the network at the moment (Behind The Panels, The Geek Actually Podcast and Podcast Pillowfort) are now ended. Nerd Corner will continue to be put out by Geek Actually as long as John Dee continues to make them. All the best, and we will be back before you know it.

Regards, David McVay (Owner of Geek Actually)

  • We watched this movie last night with friends after I saw this post; what a great time! It’s a romance, a buddy movie, a frat movie, and each one is hysterical and … well. I don’t want to give anything away, but omg, how nice to see comedy that affirms one’s faith in people for a change instead of implying we all suck. http://latestmoviesweb.com/
