Facebooktwitterredditmail

It’s with my pleasure to welcome to the network, the Sci-Fi Sundae Podcast v2.0 the GonnaGeek Podcast Network.

Sci-Fi Sundae is an irreverent look into the latest in pop-culture. From Comic Con to the movies and the comics that inspire both, we will break down the latest developments in the pop-culture landscape! So join us as we get entirely too serious about topics that were once too geeky to be mainstream!

As you look through the Sci-Fi Sundae Podcasts, do some of the names seem familiar? Well it should. The Sci-Fi Sundae Podcast is an off-shoot of current GonnaGeek Network member, The IntelleXual Podcast.

It’s a pleasure to continue our expansion, and we are further grateful to have another existing member add another podcast to the network.

WELCOME TO THE NETWORK.
