Geeksquatch has gone full crypto!  Play along as the cast dedicates the entire episode to Cryptogeekology, 80s and 90s trivia.  

Special guest Jocelyn teams up with Brandon to battle Heather and Alex across five categories of questions.  Things get interesting down the stretch...you won’t want to miss it!

Geeksquatch is a nostalgia podcast brought to you by a group of “enthusiasts” that grew up in the 80’s and 90’s -  and by enthusiasts, they’re actually just a bunch of friends that like to geek out about tv, movies, video games, and toys from their formative years.  Join the podcast each week to reminisce about nerd culture topics before they became retro favorites.  Come for the squatch, stay for the trivia.

The Crow - 052

The Crow is so much more than the film that took Brandon Lee from us.  It’s dark, grungy atmosphere set in a Detroit cesspool is the stage for a wild revenge tale that was inspired by the author’s personal loss.  

Alex resurrects this action classic as Geeksquatch hunts down all of the lesser known aspects of the film.  The gang runs down the film’s comic book source material, plot, special effects and cast of characters.  And, of course you’ll get the real story behind Brandon Lee’s death.


Video games are the Cryptogeekology: 20 Questions category this week.  Alex is on his way to stumping the squad, but there’s a glimmer of hope thanks to some knowledge nuggets that Caleb pulls out of thin air.

Gremlins - 049

Popping into life from a script that was never meant to be made into a film, produced by Steven Spielberg and helmed by a rising horror director, Gremlins made a giant splash in the summer of 1984. Which is odd since it’s a Christmas movie. 
 
Colin hosts this week as he feeds the regular crew, sans Jaime, after midnight. The unlikely origins of the film, it’s cast, and production challenges are all discussed as well as that crazy ‘why I don’t celebrate Christmas anymore’ monologue that creeps us all out.


As always, we close the show out with Cryptogeekology: 20 Questions. Heather joins us again and the gang struggles with a new topic: Actor. See if you can guess who it is before they do.

Dungeons and Dragons and The Satanic Panic - 048

Dungeons and Dragons is a tabletop roleplaying game that took the world by storm. The Satanic Panic was a cultural phenomenon during the 80s and 90s damning nearly everything totally rad. This week the crew gets together to talk about both.
 
Alex hosts this week as he guides the cast through the history of D&D, Gary Gygax’s early career, how D&D works, and the causes of the Satanic Panic (as well as why D&D holds some of that stigma today). There’s also an impromptu dungeon encounter somewhere in there that no one was ready for.


As always, we close the show out with Cryptogeekology: 20 Questions. Heather joins us again and the gang crushes the new topic: Board Games. See if you can grab it before they do.
