Hey, everyone. It's your friend Alex. I just wanted to apologize for cursing you with discussion about this awful garbage movie.

GeekSquatch is a nostalgia podcast brought to you by a pair 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.
BY THE POWER OF GREYSKULL, WE HAVE THE PODCAST!!!!! Alex and Caleb discuss the action figure/cartoon crazy of the early 80s: He-Man. How did they come up with a character essentially named "boy-boy" anyway? Why does he look so much like another famous shirtless barbarian whose name rhymes with Bonan? We delve into the nitty gritty and theorize on what those hairy loin clothes really were made of on this episode of GeekSquatch.Read More
Things spiral out as Remy joins Alex and Caleb as we talk about the Alex Proyas cult classic film: Dark City. It's an interesting movie to talk about as it's flown under the radar for many people, overshadowed by a bigger film that came out a year later - The Matrix. Tune in and enjoy as we talk about this more off-beat films successes and failures.Read More
We take a different turn this week as we talk about the man who shaped traditional animation in the early 80s: Don Bluth.

Welcome to a two-for-one episode! In the first half Caleb, Alex, and special guest Tinkkz from Bombshell Jackets talk about the phenomenon that is Porn in the Woods. Needless to say this episode is NSFW as we share our stories, stories from our fans/friends about finding random pornography in the wilderness. and why that happened in the first place. On the second half of the show we talk about the 1994-95 craze that swept the nation: POGs. Their origin, the fact that they're still used to this day as currency on some military bases, and why they succeeded.Read More
The movie that started the superhero movie phenomenon is our topic of this week - Batman 1989. It may not have held up so well, but there were a lot of things we forgot about this film! From the odd casting issues to the decade long development and twelve different scripts it's a wonder this movie ever got made, but it's legacy can be felt even today. @TopherNunes joins us as we blab about the Bat.Read More
This week love is in the air as we talk about a film that is very special to host Caleb and guest Jaime McCallister: When Harry Met Sally. Alex actually doesn't hate this one, surprisingly enough! Things get interesting as we talk about whether men and women can be platonic friends and "woods" porn. Light the candles and set the mood for a very special Valentine's day episode of GeekSquatch.Read More
The Godfather of the Ninja Pancake Network, Remy Ransom, joins us again to talk about a movie that at first glance should be good, but is instead a dumpster fire.

This week Colin joins us again (and Brandon takes a week off) while the guys talk about the pivotal and commercially successful metal album of the 90's: Metallica's Black Album.

Merry Christmas ya filthy animals! Our Yule time episode has arrived! This year we're covering a 90's classic that sent bandits, burglars, and bums scrambling away from every toe headed Caucasian male child for fear they might get a paint bucket to the dome. That's right we're slapping our cheeks and screaming about Home Alone!4Read More

069 - Wolfenstein 3D
We spend a lot of time talking about the large, in both stature and accomplishment, man who laid the foundation for the game that would put id Software on the map: Silas Warner. His life was fascinating even though he wasn't as successful as he probably should have been. We also discuss about how crazy John Carmack was/is and how Wolfenstein 3D sold extremely well for being a shareware release.
Alex also yells about Nazis for a minute, of course.Read More
068 - True Lies
The end of SchwartzGiving is upon us as we discuss the Arnie as action spy and final James Cameron team-up: True Lies. We talk about Bill Paxton, Tom Arnold, and how surprisingly into Jamie Lee Curtis at least one member of the crew is. It might get awkward.Read More
SchwartzGiving continues as we talk about one of the few sequels that far surpasses it's predecessor: Terminator 2: Judgment Day. We really tried to examine how this movie would feel watching for the first time and gush over all of the great iconic scenes as well as contemplate how time travel works. That last part doesn't work so well.Read More
