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 34: Keeping It Casual

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditlinkedinmail

We’ve made it abundantly clear how thrilled we are to witness the progression of fandom topics from the sidelines, to an era of “geek chic”, to widespread mainstream adoption. Watercooler conversations now involve such subjects as the Marvel cinematic universe and ‘Game of Thrones’ as often as politics or sports (well, almost as often), and you can drop references to Star Wars, or even quote a line from a Harry Potter book at a party without getting side-eyed. If this is the new age of geek assimilation, that should mean that the “old guard” of people in those fandoms should relish the new blood, increased interest, and new energy that the expanding fan-bases see, right? Well, not exactly. Why is it that the casual fan can still be made to feel marginalized, or even discouraged from the fandom because they’re not as deeply invested as the hardcore or “superfans”? Joined by our friend Chip from Two Minute Time Lord and The Audio Guide to Babylon 5, we discuss the rigors of being a casual fan of anything in a world of ‘superfans’.
