It's Monday, and Graphic Policy Radio is back at its normal time. This week we're going a little bit serious, and mixing it with some entertainment.
On this episode:
The nasty side of online geek culture again reared its ugly head as threats were made towards a respected female member of the community. You can read the original article posted here, as well as two follow up articles here and here.
We're discussing our favorite costumes in comic books! That's right, we go over what we feel are the best designs, both in look and actual use.
We discuss the latest hit BOOM! Studios/BOOM! Box series Lumberjanes!
Tomb Raider is up to issue three. We both thought the first issue was good, but how have the latest two issues been? Find out here!
So join us this Monday we want to hear from you! Call in with your thoughts or Tweet them to us, @graphicpolicy.
It has been the rise of the geeks! But who are they? Are they all just Science Fiction and Fantasy Geeks? Or do other genres like horror, mystery/thrillers, and romance have their geekdom as well and can we all just get along? Join The Write Pack as the explore geekdom, Comic Con, Bouchercon, gaming, role playing games, comic books, and the past and modern age of geekdom—including crowdsourcing films like Veronica Mars, Star Trek Axanar, and Star Trek Renegades.
Also, here is an article from the BBC about D&D as it was looked at 30 years ago, when there was a mania against parts of Geek culture: The great 1980s Dungeons & Dragons panic: http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-26328105
Jennifer and Luis discuss the ongoing trend of geek culture becoming chic and becoming more prevalent in popular culture. From music, to movies, to comics, and clothing, geek icons, references, and more are invading. If you know how to program, if you're a tech entrepreneur, or the founder of a start-up, these people are the new cool. There seems to be an entire shift in mindset over what used to be a blemish on your social status. Is this good or bad and how long can it last?
