Week in Geek, episode 1, recorded 8/22/17. News since last recording (in this case, the trial run episode on Comparative Opinions!), including: the events in Charlottesville; movie and TV news including Galaxy Quest, the Joker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, James Bond, and Jessica Jones; and the end of Mass Effect.
This week for a Throwback Thursday, looking back at some of our posts from the original blog, there was one that came to mind this week thinking about Ghostbuster… but then I remembered that really, there’s two posts there, so why not both?

Or follow those links back to the originals where there was a lot of conversation.
