The only reason Keir Hansen really wants the ability to time travel is to be able to get to all the content the geek community creates in a single day. A web dork and hack pixel-pusher by day, all spare hours are devoted to absorbing film and television, reading and writing sci-fi, a smattering of gaming, unlicensed attempts at mixology, culinary adventures, and novice cat wrangling.
He was once accused of being a "Jack of all trades", but that sounded too much like actual work, and the accuser has since been sacked. His particular passions include Whovianism (classic and new), the complete works of Douglas Adams, and anyone who offers a free sample of wine and/or chocolate, even when unmarked white vans are involved. (It's okay. He can run really quickly.)

Episode 32: The 2016 Geek Glad Game

Facebooktwitterredditmail

The expressions have become so commonplace, they have literally become memes: “go home, 2016, you’re drunk” or “2016, you are fired”. If you’ve listened to our podcast even once, you’ll know that we put too much effort into promoting positivity and hope to simply dismiss an entire year of our finite lives with that sort of a perspective. There have been difficulties, to be sure, setbacks and losses. But we gather with our listeners and like-minded geeks and enthusiasts to celebrate our passions and interests, and with that goal in view, there are many, many things about the year 2016 that fan culture can enjoy and revel in. Call it an ‘advent calendar for the fandoms’, if you will, as we identify 25 gifts bestowed upon to geeks through the year 2016 that we can all celebrate and feel good about. As 19th century banker, philanthropist and scientist John Lubbock famously said, “What we see depends mainly on what we look for.” Here at IDO, that’s why we look for reasons to geek out and geek happy. So join us, as we draft a holiday list of two dozen gifts the geek community has unwrapped in 2016, with guests Neil (of The Starling Tribune) and John (of Mutter’s Spiral).
