Episode 14: Geeks in Quarantine

 Michelle and Stef have emerged from quarantine. Just kidding, they couldn't stop talking about all the pop culture news happening lately, and had to dust off the podcast! In this episode, recorded virtually, the Pop Culture Junkees discuss DC FanDome, Gamescom 2020 and all the things we're binging (and look forward to binging) on Netflix and the other streaming apps.



Guess what!?!?!

 

WE’RE BAAAAAAAAAAAACK!!!!!

 

We share what we have been up to during this pandemic  break and discuss how we would handle the apocalypse.  Do you think you could survive it? Want our opinions on DC Fandome and GamesCon2020? You are about to get them!  Plus, Stefanie shares updates on her book that is almost done and Michelle shares tales of her wild kitten, Barnes.  We share a moment of silence for Chadwick Boseman, who will be sorely missed.  And have our typical “squirrel” moments.

 

Now that we are back in full force and ready to get the show back on the road, we are looking for input from you about what you want to see from us and what you are interested in hearing us talk about.  We are going to have guests on the show and if there is anyone that you want to hear on the show, let us know

Flashback Friday with Stefanie

Today it is Stefanie's turn to share her favorite episode that we have done so far - EPISODE SIX: SISTER BONDING TIME.

This was a wild one with our sisters joining us, as well as our littlest nephew and niece in the mix.  The funniest part of it all was in the middle of a pretty serious moment, Stefanie's nephew busted out of the room and took off. Don't they say never work with children and animals?  LMAO!!


So, it is now your turn, what is your favorite episode that we have done so far?  Maybe we will feature it and let you talk about why you enjoyed it. 

The geek out of the week is season 2 of The Umbrella Academy! Completely binge-worthy and was watched in a weekend.  Did you watch it yet?  What did you think?  Who is your favorite character? 



As always, we love to hear from you and hope that you will chat with us on any of our social media handles.

Flashback Friday with MIchelle

Next up in our favorite episodes recap is Michelle’s favorite episode that we have done so far – Episode 8: GIRLS IN GEEKDOM from November 2019.

Michelle on why this episode was so important to her:

Geekdom is such a huge part of my life and being a female geek it is often a tiresome fight to be taken seriously. Geek girls are here to stay and it is about time that we be shown the same respect as male geeks.  Some of the smartest women that I know are geeks and often times have shown that they are even more knowledgeable of the geek scene than men. I really loved this episode and the frank conversation about growing up as geek girls, what it means to us, and what we hope the future brings for us.  

Huge shout outs to Geek Girl Brunch, Blue Ribbon Army, & Very Awesome Girls Phoenix for being such a strong geek presence in Arizona and empowering female geeks.

Michelle is geeking out over the rumor that there is going to be a Lando Calrissian series on Disney+, starring Donald Glover.  She is very vocal about the fact that she really didn’t enjoy “Solo: A Star Wars Story”, but she absolutely LOVED Donald Glover’s portrayal of Lando and was hoping we’d see more of his adventures.  (And hopefully they will get inspired to give us some Emfys Nest and Qi’Ra as well.)



Stefanie is geeking out over Comic-Con@home and being able to watch all the panels without the insanity of the lines at SDCC  Not only are the panels all on line, but the vendors are having online sales.  Sitting on your couch and watching panels and shopping in the summer?  Perfect. 



What are you geeking out over? Are you enjoying Comic-con@home this weekend and shopping?  Let us know in the comments or on one of our social media spots.

See you in two weeks with Stef’s favorite episode.  And cross your fingers, we think we are going to do a video podcast to get our show back on the road!  We will let you know shortly.

Flashback Friday

Here we are, still going with stay at home orders. But we miss you all so we decided for the next few weeks that we would Flashback to our first episode and our favorite episodes.

Today we are starting with our very first episode!  We had no idea anything about podcasting when we started and we had so much fun!!!

Episode One - The Intimacy Acceleration!


Stefanie is totally geeking out (as is Michelle) over Hamilton this week while she spends time in Portland with family.  It is just amazing, isn't it?


Michelle has been geeking out for a couple of weeks now over the new addition to her household, Mr. James Buchanan Barnes.  He's 12 weeks of bad attitude and crazy kitten antics.

"Time for the charm bomb to explode."




Things are starting to slowly open…the end is in sight!  Are you ready to get back out there in the world?  Michelle has no immune system so she is waiting for the red shirts to get out there first and see what happens. (10 points if you get the reference. I mean…you should…)

We are sharing our geek out for the week as we both are all about the two geeks out that are chosen.

BOBS’S BURGERS IS FINALLY GOING TO BE A MOVIE!!! This is not a test, folks, this is a for real deal! On April 9th 2021, our beloved Belcher family will be hitting the big screen and we couldn’t be more excited!  Fun fact…a couple of years ago we were planning out a whole Bob’s Burgers cosplay…we had the whole family.  Then our Linda backed out…our Gene didn’t want to be Gene as he felt it was a goofy character and he should be Bob.  And it all fell apart. But rest assured, Michelle and Stefanie are pulling out our best Louise and Tina for this movie!!



Netflix announced the premiere date for season two of The Umbrella Academy!!! The teaser is just as fun with the cast, self quarantined, dancing in their homes.  We are so excited for s2.  Are you a fan?  You know that this is going to end up as an episode of our podcast so we can geek out over the Hargreeves family!



What has made you geek out over the last week?  We’d love to hear about it.

More Geeking Out: The Corona-cle Era

We hope you are all doing good still, not going too crazy with Shelter In Place/Stay At Home orders still in effect. It feels like it is coming to an end soon, which means that we will carefully make plans to get together and start podcasting again!! 😃😃

But have no fear, we are here to share with you another week of geeking out!

Stefanie is geeking out over the big news that Boba Fett is going to be in s2 of The Mandalorian! Last time we saw the bounty hunter he was tumbling down the sandy dunes into the waiting mouth of the Sarlaac.


Michelle is geeking out over the latest social media time kill craze, TikTok. Hot Cops, cute pets, crazy dances, and new ways to irritate the people in your life?  She's all over this!!

Michelle's favorite video of how to annoy your family!

See you next week with more geeking out goodness.

Happy Star Wars Day!!



A Rebel and a Sith walk into a bar...

Are we the new dyad, we have to wonder?

Happy Star Wars Day!!

This day is all about celebrating that galaxy far, far away and not paying any attention to the ugly drama that seems to consume this fandom so often.

How are you celebrating the day? We'd love to hear about what you did today.

May the Force be with you!

xoxo,

Stef and Mich
