Talking about Geek Culture - movies, books, video games, television shows, food, fun, and sometimes filking, conventions, science fiction, fantasy, and Klingon opera. We wear Browncoats and wonder why bunnies need such good eyesight.

The future is now
Many shows that fly a geek banner do not much other than cover genre TV and movies but UG stands more like a magazine that covers different parts of geek culture with and emphasis on technology and creativity. They are more likely to champion independent media the the form of comics, books, plays film. And the insightful discussions on technology always take a step back to speculate the full implications on the future of the human experience. Another thing that sets it apart from other podcasts is that instead of treading the same ground of things I already know about, UG is more often than not exposing me to something new.
Explore the Geek Culture Universe... ALL of it...
I don't always listen podcasts. But when I do? I listen to Universal Geek.
Thoughtful, thoroughly broad, far ranging, meanders in discussion because... Well, what happens when you set a few geeks down together? Topics wander into other topics in interesting and often unpredictable ways as individual geeks bring in their own experience and revelations to the table. The core hosts, Sean, Bleu, and Jeff are easy to listen to end clearly enjoy having these discussions. My only regret is that it can't be all three of them more consistently all together. Sean, the central host who will show up week after week nearly rain or shine, does a good job of ring-leading and keeping the show moving along JUST enough without shutting the conversation down. Tends to run long, but has been brisker as of late. I love it either way, running long or at a speedy clip. Always learn something new, even as a life-long avowed geek.
