Yes. I am indeed a Dragonball fan
But yeah, they happened to refer to Geeknights as "the greatest podcast ever"
Anime World Order was the first one I found, and after listening to them for an episode I found a lot of these podcasts reference each other; the obvious thought that came to mind was that
"If these people all talk about each other, then they must all be pretty good.... or just suck. And since AWO is pretty good, I guess it's the former"
So I looked around a bit more, and I found GeekNights, and saw that you had, not one, but FOUR podcasts, and I also found out they were awesome.
At least I hope. It's not all a big trick, is it?
The way I found GeekNights is somewhat unique. I stumbled upon the show after my fiance, my roommate, and I decide we would take a swing at being webcomic artists a year or two ago. The original story of said webcomic was, oddly enough, about a group of geeks who live in a large communal house together (for the sake of brevity we'll call it a 'geek hacienda') only to find giant robots buried in their basement. After much back and forth amongst the creative team I got the okay to call the robots 'GeeKnights' because they ran off of things called 'gravi-kenetic units' (or GK-units, yay for stupid pseudoscience). Once that and other crucial bits of plot were settled I, as the head writer, set about ensuring we were not intruding upon anybody else's intellectual property (read: putting a bunch of names into google to see if they existed already) before we went about copyrighting or own.
Lo and behold when I googled 'GeeKnights' the first response is, in fact, "GeekNights; a podcast which covers a myriad of topics in a self-described 'late-night radio talk show' style." I read this and noticed the word 'podcast', which I had heard about before in radio broadcasting class around 2004 as being the harbinger of an open-source radio revolution. The school I had been going to (Columbia College Chicago) had also been the first school to have a podcast available to the student body. I had helped get the school podcast off the ground and podcasting had always interested me since, but I wasn't very aware of any private podcasts, much less able to invest any time into one of my own. So I gave it a listen.
Skip forward about four years into the future to the present where the previously mentioned webcomic had dissolved almost completely due to budget contraints. I say almost because once we had realized that in order to maintain a decent webcomic, which had over the course of time had become a comic as well as a supplementary podcast, we would not only have to marry it, but also convert to it's religion and live with the mother-in-law. It also wanted kids.
After that had dawned on us and we had gotten more into listening to podcasts (AWO, Dave & Joel, Make It So) we decide to gear things toward a recorded geek orgy podcast of our own, which is currently in the middle of pre-production. Until then, sorry to ramble and keep up the good work!
On the first episode I listened to Rym and Scott talked about RIT. I've visited the campus before to do a show at the RIT Juggle In, a juggling convention that has run there for 20 years or so. I flew in to New York from Europe so also got to spend some time in the city where they work too. I like to feel some kind of geographic connection, no matter how vague.
But yeah, they happened to refer to Geeknights as "the greatest podcast ever" (or something to that effect), so I figured it would be worth to check it out.
So here we are, a year and a half later, and now I'm a fan, and now a forum goer. Hazzah.
Oh, and by "Dragonball", I mean everything. the original series, Z, the movies, and sigh.... GT. Yes, I am aware it is a shallow fighting show with no real plot development and character advancement (especially later on in the series) but it is one of my favorites. It's what first got me into anime, and I have grown quite fond of the characters.
But yeah, Geeknights, also awesome.
It was the first Zombies episode. The rest, as they say, is history.
