What I Listened To This Week – 2-7-20

You may be saying to yourself “Keith, there’s like 700,000 podcasts out there, and 695,000 of them are true crime podcasts, where can I find something worth listening to?”

To make things a little easier for you, each Friday I’ll give you three podcasts I’ve listened to and enjoyed this week

Just to be fair, I’ll steer clear of the shows I actually work on (Although just for the record, you should totally listen to the Garry Meier Show)

  • Politics Politics Politics: Justin Robert Young was killing it this week. He covered the death throes of the Trump impeachment, the State of the Union address and the never-ending Iowa caucuses. Plus, unlike just about everybody else covering all of those things, he managed to not be a political hack while doing it. My guess is he’s probably going to show up on this list a lot. I’m just sayin’.
  • Current Geek: Scott Johnson and Tom Merritt watch the pilot of Gilligan’s Island. How can you not get excited about that?
  • Alienating the Audience: Andrew Heaton chats up Duke University Geneticist Dr. Eric Spana about how genetics works in all your favorite sci-fi worlds. Remember when George Lucas tried to explain how the Force worked? Yeah, it’s like that, but for everything.

Geek/CounterGeek – #151: Reviewing Star Trek: Picard

There is lots of news out of Team Disney. Misty Callahan and Keith Conrad talk about the new live-action remakes on the horizon, and trouble in the Obi-Wan Kenobi series.

Plus, Star Trek: Picard has finally dropped on CBS All Access. Misty and Keith share their reaction to the return of Jean Luc-Picard.
