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 45: Food Fandom

Facebooktwitterredditmail

At a point in nearly everyone’s life, the point arrives where we are called upon to provide our own sustenance. Adulting! For some, this is daunting, daresay terrifying, and the task of preparing nutritious or even barely edible foods become a task, a chore, something to avoid when possible. Others, however, relish the challenge of a recipe, or go even further to blaze their own culinary trails, learning the artistry and alchemy of preparation, combination, presentation. Hail to thee, kitchen nerds — for you have our hearts, and our bellies. This session, we’re setting the table for a conversation about fan-caliber fascination with food and cooking. It might emerge from the love of family cooking history that evolves with the newest generation, or a a true geek’s immersion in trying new and innovative cooking technology. It could be a fanatical following of a famed chef or culinary personality, and exploration of the dishes, recipes, and styles they center upon. Whatever the flavor of fandom, when there’s this much passion in the mixture, you have to appreciate the results. We’re joined in studio by television editor, podcaster, and master-of-his-own-kitchen, Wil Hendandez, to discuss this fanatical fascination with food. Editor’s Note: For those interested in the #WhoAgainstGuns initiative mentioned during our “good news from the fandoms” segment, please visit the fundraiser site for details on how to get involved. We implore you to do so, and help spread the word about this campaign to combat gun violence!
