  • Episode 224 – Geologically Imminent

    06This week’s episode was recorded live at The Phoenix theater in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  Our guest was Jennifer Menken from the Bell Museum and she joined us to talk about the 100th Anniversary of the National Park Service.  Unfortunately, she didn’t do much talking because Tim wouldn’t shut up.  Hopefully we can get Jennifer back to talk about something Tim doesn’t know a thing about.  All that said, this episode is a good (if rapid) review of the history of the National Park service as well as a fine exploration of the different ways Jennifer and Tim pronounce the word “Saguaro.”


  • Episode 50 – National Park Boners

    DSC00656We have a week filled with geeky boners of all kinds.  Not your usual geeky topics, mind you.  Rather, we talk about things like marathons and nuclear missle launch facilities.  Because when you talk about what makes you geek out, it isn’t always comics or movies or TV.  Sometimes it’s the stuff that just makes our geeky little hearts beat faster.  We also talk about video games so we manage to bring it back to a core geek topic.  We also read five answers by Stacy from California!

    Also, we have a brief blurb for Camp Quest Minnesota at the end of the episode.  Over the holidays last year, we raised enough money to support one scholarship for a child who otherwise couldn’t afford to go.  If you have kids in the right age range, now is the time to sign them up!
