“What’s your geek?”
That’s the question that spawned this site. The very word geek has been transformed into something very versatile. What was once an insult designed to belittle people who were different has become something more. One can geek out about video games and comics just as much as cars and sports. Everyone has something they love with a passion, and that’s where we come in.
Geekade is designed to create a place that features consistent original content focusing on anything and everything someone can geek about. No matter what it is, if you can geek out about it, it’s welcome. Geekade may sound like a nerdy energy drink, but the idea came from combining the word geek with arcade. Arcades used to be the type of place that had something for everyone. There were racing games next to shooting games next to sports games next to pinball machines. No type of game wasn’t welcome, and the same went for the people who went there. In the heyday of the arcade, 9 year olds would stand next to businessmen and nobody would bat an eye. Women and men both spent time in the arcade, and there wasn’t any stigma associated with anyone. Whether you were a movie fanatic, a football player, or just a kid, the arcade was the cool place to be. That kind of welcoming attitude is what we’re all about. Whether your passion is cosplay, James Bond movies, guitar pedals, or anything in-between, we believe that if it’s spoken about with love and passion, people will find it interesting.
That’s our goal. We’re here to provide you with the best original podcasts about the things we care about. Hopefully it’s contagious.
Take a look around, get comfortable, and join the conversation.
Welcome to Geekade.
Who The Heck Are We?
Kris Randazzo - Co-founder, Content Supervisor
Kris spent his formative years collecting cartridges, CDs, discs, and assorted paraphernalia in an effort to amass a video game collection large enough to kill an elephant. (He wouldn't though. He loves elephants). He works with Stone Age Gamer as their social media and marketing guy, where he also writes their blog, runs their YouTube channel, and more. He's also a staff writer at Nintendo Force magazine, and can be found on several Geekade podcasts including Stone Age Gamer, WaveBack, Turning Tracks, A Theater Near You, and This Week's Episode.
Evan Goldstein - Co-founder
Evan is the lifeblood that keeps Geekade running. He edits podcasts, makes important decisions, and gets things done. He is a very busy, very powerful man, but he's also an all around wonderful human being. His actual origins are unknown, but it's said that he was torn from the thigh of Zeus. We have yet to actually confirm that ourselves though. Evan is the host of Geekade's TV Podcast, This Week's Episode, and has his hands in many other pies all over the site. He also really liked Moon Knight.
Angela Fernot - Event Coordinator
Angela is an artist who harnesses her astounding abilities for the good of all mankind. She's also one heck of a planner, so if Geekade is ever doing some sort of charity event or something to that effect, Angela is the one we all answer to. She also hosts Geekade's TV Podcast, This Week's Episode, and has contributed numerous blog posts and pieces of art to the site over the years.
Matt Mutch - Photographer
Image Acquisition Specialist and Computer Enthusiast. A mystery wrapped in an enigma wrapped in a plaid shirt. He likes Sad Anime.
Dan Ryan - Master of Ceremonies
Dan Ryan was once the most feared and respected luchador in the world until the "Great DDT Disaster of '85" where Dan unfortunately DDT'd his opponent so hard into the ground that he opened a gate to the underworld that let unholy things into this world. After that, Dan refused to wrestle anymore but he's found new life writing and talking about his favorite hobbies here at Geekade. He pens regular blog posts as theGEEKwriter, co-hosts The Stone Age Gamer Podcast, expertly pairs video games with beer, and much, much more. Dan is a personality that Geekade simply would not be the same without.
