Apologies for the lateness of this podcast – Julia was practically bedridden for almost a week, which kept her from putting the file together. We’ll be back on sched next week.

In this episode, Marc Edward Heuck, best known as the Movie Geek from Comedy Central’s Beat the Geeks, talks Fast & Furious, how Ben Stein kept him from getting dates, the evolution of Comedy Central and nerddom, a better name for the perpetually offended than the overused and one-sided “SJW,” and why he thinks being a geek is becoming a bad thing again.

For Gallen and those concerned with alphabetization, we’re going to try beginning each show title now with the word “episode” and the number. Hope that helps.

As always, if you do iTunes, please subscribe and review us. iTunes subscribers get to hear the podcast first.
