Broken Projector: The Era of Geek Dominance

Scott C Goonies

On today’s show we explore the most obvious cultural trend of our time — the infusion of geeky stuff into the mainstream. We’ll talk with Zero Charisma directors Katie Graham and Andrew Matthews about getting geek culture right in their fan favorite film portraying a D&D-like gaming group and their fragile leader.

Plus, Great Showdowns artist Scott Campbell (see above) explains why he puts smiley faces on everything and shares his towering movie passion.

And since I’m feeling overwhelmed by the amount of capes on the big screen, Agents of Geek founder Jim Napier drops by to lift my spirits by offering an optimistic outlook on the future of geek film properties.
