Happy Friday, my friends!

Welcome back to the Indiana Geeking Podcast! This month, we're sitting down to talk to Lisa and Mark from the local convention, Starbase Indy! We're talking about some of the cool things that are happening this year, in addition to a really awesome announcement that hadn't gone up on any of their social media feeds, yet! This is also the second time Lisa has been on the podcast talking Starbase Indy, so we'll call back to that episode (link) more than once.

So, replicate yourself a Raktajino, sit back, and let us fill your ear holes for the next thirty minutes and change.

Happy Friday, my friends!

Welcome back to the Indiana Geeking Podcast! This month, we're still looking at gaming, because I'm still feeling Gen Con, but instead of cards, we're looking at table top role playing games! Specifically, we're looking at a locally created source book for Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition! The World of Tele'Thala is a world, compatible with D&D 5E, that was created by Jared Bartels, with art and layout design by Mike Ficarra, for Courser's Folly Entertainment. These two sat down with me at the Geek Cave Studios, pet my dogs, and talked with me about their work, answered some questions from users of the Geeking in Indiana Discord, and generally just had a good conversation with me.

So settle in, grab a nice cup of tea, and listen to us all talk D&D for about fifty minutes! Added bonus: Scroll to the bottom of the blog post for information about the contest mentioned in the podcast!

Happy Friday, my friends!

We are back with another Magic: The Gathering episode of the Indiana Geeking Podcast! This one is a bit longer, but we had a lot of stuff to go over to bring you all up to date on everything Magic happening from the beginning of 2019, all the way up to the recently released MTG 2020 Core Set. Not only do we have that information, but Jarred and TJ also cracked open a prerelease box (see photos at bottom of the post) and did some talking about how to draft a deck. In addition, after the episodes were recorded, we wanted to give you all some additional resources, so look for those down in the show notes.

Now, I want to warn you all, this episode is over two hours. Jarred and TJ had a lot of information, and even after a couple of listens, I didn't have much to cut past some of my "witty" remarks. So, tuck in, and get ready to listen to all things Magic: The Gathering, thanks to these two fantastic gentlemen! If you're looking for specific expansion information, everything is broken down in the time stamps below!

Happy Friday, my friends!

The Indiana Geeking Podcast is back, with an episode that I know at least four people look forward to every year! That's right, it's the yearly Magic: The Gathering episode! Joining me at Geek Cave Studios are my friends Jarred Juett and TJ Zmina to talk about what has happened on the M:TG scene since their last visit in June of 2018. To continue with the trend started last year, this episode is the first part of a two-part series! Knowing how these two talk, I went ahead and did part one covering the releases through the remainder of 2018, and next month we'll talk about everything released up until M:TG 20.

So, sit back, sort some cards, and let these guys bring you up to date for the next hour and sixteen minutes!

Happy Friday, my friends! We’re back with the third episode of the Indiana Geeking Podcast, the podcast where we focus on Hoosier-based creators and events!

After an unintended break in May, I had the opportunity to sit down with my friends with The Shake Ups, to talk about their new album! That album, Meddling Kids, actually releases today, so you can actually go get it after you listen to this interview! You can also see them tonight at Radio Radio, and this weekend at PopCon Indy!

So, without further ado, join me as I give you some top events for the month of June, and then talk to The Shake Ups about how their albums happen, how they kill their favorite cartoons, and they take some questions from listeners! Plus, we have TWO new songs from their newest album! So kick back, and let us fill your earholes for a little under an hour!

Happy Friday, my friends! We're back with the second episode of the Indiana Geeking Podcast, the podcast where we focus on Hoosier-based creators and events!

This month, Lizz and I took a trip to one of the top 3D Printing events, the Midwest RepRap Festival. Held in Goshen, it brought in makers from across the world to show off their work, their machines, and eat tacos. As we were looking around, and preparing to start our own journey into 3D printing (more on that next week), we found some folks from here in Indiana that we wanted to talk Hoosier business with. Luckily, I had the trusty old Zoom H1 with me, so I was able to get some interviews with some folks in northern Indiana who make 3D Printers, filament, and use all of this to make their own props and costumes!

So, without further ado, join me as I give you some top events for the month of April, then jump into a series of short interviews with some of the local folks tabling at MRRF! Don't worry, this one's only about 45 minutes long! NOTE: You can find the Facebook Photo Album with the photos we took at this link.

Guess what time it is? That's right, it's time for the long-awaited return of the Indiana Geeking Podcast! Now that I've helped my friends get their podcasts off the ground, it's time to focus on this one! Moving forward, Indiana Geeking will "air" on the first Friday of every month! Gone are the days of "Is it weekly? Is it monthly? Did he remember it?", instead we're going monthly, along with the other members of the Team Geeking Family of Podcasts.

For 2019, I'm really excited to bring on local cartoonist David Reddick! I first became familiar with his work through the "Legend of Bill" webcomic and his work on StarTrek.com and Roddenberry.com, and have followed his "Intelligent Life" webcomic since day one. Being a local cartoonist, we have many mutual friends, but it wasn't until recently where we finally had the opportunity to meet! So now, we have him here on the Indiana Geeking Podcast, talking about his work in comics, growing up a Geek in Indiana, and more! So sit back, put in your earbuds, grab a cup of Raktajino, and enjoy the discussion!

Happy Monday, my friends! The Indiana Geeking Podcast is back, with an episode that I know at least four people look forward to every year! That's right, it's part two ofthe yearly Magic: The Gathering episode! Joining me at Geek Cave Studios are my friends Jarred Juett and TJ Zmina to talk about what has happened on the M:TG scene since their last visit in June of 2017. For an Indiana Geeking Podcast first, this episode is the second part of a two-part series! There was so much to talk about things happening from both a financial and a player standpoint, that I kept track of time and cut the discussion off, to make sure we didn't have another 100 minute episode! With this in mind, tuck in for the next 69 minutes to listen to the three of us shoot the bull about all of the expansions and issues with the game from early 2018, up to the release of Core 2019, including thoughts on the beta of Magic Arena!
