THIS WEEK IN GEEK.
This is a podcast for all you geeks out there, Yes even you grandpa.
The hosts of this show are absolutly great their chemistry is just fantastic, and they give you a very entertaining podcast on a regular basis.
My personal favorite shows are their weekly Nerd news Program. In this show they talk about what you would assume, Nerd news. They take stories from the 4 corners of the internet from the past week and give them to you in a nice 1 hour show. This show is full of improved comedy from Mike "the Birdman" Dodd, and David "Double D" Denis. Oh and we can't forget they guest hosts Mike "the Fist of justice" laidman and Mike " TFG1" Blanchard. This is a must listen for any geek who wants to hear amazing opinions on that news.
Then My second favorite show would have to be their Topic shows. These shows are the ones where the TWIG crew takes up a specific topic and discuss all aspects of it. These are their best shows because of how much work goes in to it. The research that goes in to it makes it really entertaining to listen to since they know what they are talking about, you could write a reasearch assignment on the topic and probably get an "A+" all from just listening to this very well put together show. when one of these appears in my download list i instantly get stoked and it sky rockets to the top of my must listen to list.
So if i had to rate TWIG I would give it a 9/10 its a must listen to anyone who loves geekiness and wants to listen to an amazing podcast
A grand Array of Geek Personalities that anyone can Relate to.
From Gamer to Transformer. Everyone is welcome here to listen.
Totally recommend it for any Geek!
Thanks for this podcast
I started listening to this for the UMLP. Now I have jumped the shark. If there was a strictly comic book podcast I wouldn't need to look for other geek podcasts. I mean there are no other podcasts.
