Episode 28: Humor and the Geek!

This week we crack into another concept (thus killing it entirely): HUMOR! What is funny? And why is it funny? What is funny about various and different fantasy and sci-fi IPs.


Please don’t forget we are always open to suggestions to what you want us to kick around as a topic. Please see the “Suggestion Box” post for that (or feel free to leave a comment below with some ideas.) https://elevatingthegenre.wordpress.com/2016/09/16/first-blog-post

As always our music is provided by: Nathan Bruynoghe
