The Geek to Geek Podcast with Beej and Void

Geek to Geek Podacst Art

I’ve wanted to be a podcaster for a while now. After doing a handful of guest-spots on other people’s shows, the bug bit me, but I never got it off the ground solo. Not long ago, however, my buddy Void over at A Green Mushroom asked me if I was interested in co-hosting a podcast with him.

I jumped at the chance. And the Geek to Geek Podcast was born.

Our first episode went live today, and it’s about the subjective value of games and media. We talk about the awesome Stardew Valley and Firewatch, Steam sales, and a whole lot more. It’s good stuff. You should definitely check it out.

We plan on talking about a broad range of topics on the show, but all wonderfully geeky. In fact, I believe next week’s episode is set up to be about writing and creative projects. So that’s gonna be neato.

Anyway, if you’re interested, it’s up on iTunes, as well as Overcast, Stitcher, and Pocketcasts. It can always be found at libsyn, too.

And hey, if none of that works for you, just click play right here and listen in your browser.

Let us know what you think, and I promise to love you forever if you drop us a review on iTunes or your platform of choice. They really will help us hit the ground running. Hope you enjoy!


I got so fat from eating fruits and veggies

There’s a lot of people out there who consider overeating the worst thing you can do. Especially if you’re trying to lose weight.

I mean, there’s a good reason for it, and it’s not like gluttony hasn’t been vilified for centuries as one of the deadliest of sins.

But when you’re trying to lose weight, one of the main misconceptions is about overeating. Overeating isn’t the problem–overeating the wrong kinds of foods is.

Think about it this way: You have probably never heard anyone say “I got so fat from eating too many fruits and vegetables.”

Because that’s ridiculous.  [click to continue…]


Lock Laces Review

I have a confession to make. I’m terrible at tying my shoes. Terrible. I’m a grown man, but my shoes come untied two or three times a day. I don’t know what it is–maybe it’s being left-handed, I don’t know–but I’m just straight-up bad at it.

As a runner, that’s a pretty terrible quirk since so much of our sport is tied to how we lace up. (Heh. Puns.) I mean, I was stopping once or twice a run to tighten up my laces and make sure my shoes weren’t slipping around.

So when I started seeing blogs and forums mentioning Lock Laces, I decided to give them a try. I wasn’t sure how I’d like having elastic bands in my shoes that I had to cinch up instead of knotting, but after running in them for a couple months, I can honestly say that I am never going to tie my running shoes again.

Ever.  [click to continue…]
