Before Geeks Were Cool Podcast Episode 17: Worst Episode to Date

The title says it all, this is the worst episode so far of the Before Geeks Were Cool Podcast. This week Laree arrives completely unprepared and Jim is even more tongue-tied and lethargic than usual as they attempt to chat about science fiction comics.

Listen, if you dare, as your so-called "hosts" wander from topic to topic including Guardians of the Galaxy, Mad Max Thunder Road, Rock and Roll's Greatest Failure: Otway The Movie, Planet Hulk, The Micronauts, Thor movies, Dreadstar, Zooniverse, Heavy Metal Magazine, Epic Illustrated, action figures, Henshin Cyborg, 2000AD, Doctor Who, Green Lantern, Moebius, Supermarionation, Harlan Ellison, Space Ghost, Let My Puppets Come and more censorship from Jim's mom.

A truly terrible episode. Available on iTunes. You have been warned.
