2010 Jeph Loeb on The Geek Speak Show Season 1.
That was a day that will be long remembered. The Geek Speak Show premiered on that August morning, live from studios in San Francisco. Starting off with an interview with San Diego Comic-Con's David Glanzer and followed up with an interview with Rod Roddenberry and a discussion about the very serious topic of video game addiction, it was clear that The Geek Speak Show was not just "kids in their mom's basement talking about comic books." Featuring interviews with Nicholas Meyer, Chloe Grace Moretz, JJ Abrams, Paul Dini, Ben Burtt, Bob Gale, Claudia Wells, James Tolkan, as well as interviews with independent filmmakers and writers/artists, the show established itself as one of THE destinations to celebrate Geek Culture. The show always had the feeling you get when you're spending time at your local comic book shop.
From Season 2 until its end in 2022, The Geek Speak Show went from a daily live radio show to a weekly podcast. As the show grew, so did the coverage of everything Geek Culture from not just what was heard on the podcast, but also to include in-person coverage of movie premieres, Free Comic Book Day, and of course, San Diego Comic-Con and WonderCon. The Book Club was introduced and became one of the show's most popular features. But not as popular as the annual Halloween Episode. For 12 years/seasons, the Halloween Episode was always THE most-downloaded episode.
The Geek Speak Show was definitely a part of the Geek Culture lexicon.
The Geek Speak Show came to an end for two reasons: Henry grew tired of what was starting to be accepted as "Geek Culture News": Leaks, rumors, script leaks, people thinking they can do better than directors/writers, etc. The other reason was a need to grow his new show, Paranormal Perception.
But his love of Geek Culture didn't and never will end... with a push from his new co-hosts, he decided that it's time to bring back The Geek Speak Show. The time is right when audiences have grown tired of leaks and knowing what's going to happen in their comics, films and shows. They're tired of social/poilitical agendas being shoved down their throats on Every. Single. Goshdurned. thing they watch or read. No escape from reality, no forgetting the real world for a few hours. The Geek Speak Show needed to come back and make Geek Culture fun again.
So what's new for Vol. 2? New voices, for sure. Other than that, not much. Henry will still talk to the movers & shakers in Geek Culture. He'll still introduce you to new things that may become new favorites of yours. There is one really new thing this time: You'll be able to watch The Geek Speak Show. Not every week, only for special shows. If it's a hit with all of you, it will become a regular thing.
So, as a certain vampire slayer once did: Once more, with feeling...
enjoy the ride and let your friends and family know that The Geek Speak Show is BACK!
