Hi again! Well what this site is about is geeks and all things geeky. You see, I’m a geek, nerd, and dork. Go ahead, look it up on the internet. I’m there under one of those descriptions. But this site and this show isn’t about me, it’s about what I love – geeks and the things that make them geeky.
We live in exciting times and for this brief shiny moment geeks are cool. I’ve always believed that and, no matter how public opinion changes, they always will be. Each week I’ll be interviewing a geek, as a geek. That means I won’t be asking the same hard hitting questions as other interviewers might. It means I’ll be interviewing somebody who I think it cool for their geekiness and I hope you will too.
The following is a partial list of some of the awesome people and chickens* that I’ll be talking to soon. These are really some great geeks- from all walks of life and geekdom. I’ll be adding more soon and hopefully will be able to do some live interviews in the future as well.
Know of some cool geeks other geeks would like to know about? Send me your suggestions!
