Geeks Explicitly & Wargaming Recon Holiday Release Schedules

With the holidays here all of our lives become a little crazy.  We spend more time with friends and families.  We spend more time decorating the tree, lighting the menorah, and planning our local Festivus.  Like you, I will be increasingly busy and that necessitates a little vacation from podcasting.

Don’t worry though because my mini-vacation will return me more energized than ever with all sorts of great content.

Check out the below release schedule for Geeks Explicitly and Wargaming Recon.  There are a couple more episodes to come before the break.  That should sate your appetite.  If it doesn’t, you can always dig into the vault or listen to the other great shows on the Troll in the Corner Podcast Network.  Indie Talks and Monsters of the Shattered World are worthy of your time.

You may also be interested to know that December 22nd is my 31st birthday.  I’ll be spending my birthday weekend in a fantastic way.  On Friday the 21st my wife and I have great seats for a Providence Bruins hockey game.  On the day of my birth we will be seeing the new Cirque du Soleil 3D film Worlds Away and having dinner at Wasabi.


Geeks Explicitly 25 Delayed

We apologize for the delay in releasing Geeks Explicitly Episode 25. Normally episodes are released every Thursday after being recorded earlier in the week.

Here at TCPN we don’t like to leave you empty handed. I can tell you that episode 25 is a top 5 list episode sharing great sci-fi aliens.
