Everything Geek Podcast: A Look Ahead At Our 2021 Plans

Hello everyone,

I hope you’re all well, staying safe and that you’ve been having a great holiday. 2020 was a crazy year for everyone so hopefully 2021 is an improvement. Before 2021 begins I wanted to do my yearly looking ahead post to some of our plans for the new year- in this case 2021.

Before I talk about some of our 2021 plans I wanted to thank all of you for your support this year. 2020 was a pretty crazy year all round but your continued support, or new support if you found out about us this year, has always been much appreciated and we love doing the podcast and seeing your reactions especially to our interviews. June marks eight years of our Everything Geek Podcast and it’s incredible to us that we’ve been doing the podcast for so long. We wouldn’t still be here without your support so thanks for your support, following us and for listening to the podcast. We’re looking forward to bringing you a lot more great interviews and other content in 2021.

Also, I wanted to apologise for there being a lot of silence from the podcast in both July and December this year. Unfortunately I lost two family members this year, one in July and one in December, which is why we were very quiet during those months as I needed personal time for myself and why we weren’t doing much those two months. 2020 was a challenging year for everyone and it was no different for me. Hopefully 2021 will be better for everyone. I’m looking forward to regularly producing new content for EGP, interviews and more, in the new year.

As you know if you’ve been following EGP a while the thing we enjoy doing most is interviewing cast and crew members from films, TV shows and video-games. 2020 was an interesting and challenging year for interviewing as because of the COVID-19 pandemic a lot of TV shows had to be put on hold/have their seasons end early and releases of films postponed for a while. From an interviewer perspective a lot of big names only do publicity when they have something to promote (film, TV show etc) so with so many things being delayed or put on hold it made getting some big interviews challenging. We did do a lot of great interviews in 2020 but hopefully with a lot of films coming out and TV shows airing new episodes in 2021 hopefully next year is a lot bigger for us. We’re certainly looking forward to a lot of the film, TV and video-game releases coming in 2021 and bringing you interviews from them.

Interviewing cast and crew members from films, TV shows and video-games is one of the things we do most regularly and it’s personally what I enjoy doing most on EGP. I think it’s fascinating to talk to cast and crew members (regardless of how big or small their role was) about working on a project or projects that I’m a big fan of. Confirming and announcing new guests for the podcast is very time consuming but very much worth it when we get to interview them and when we get your feedback on the interviews. Feedback is one of the most important things for us regardless of whether it’s positive or negative as we do look to improve our show and get more exciting interviews from a variety of different media. We’ve got a lot of fantastic guests confirmed that we’re looking forward to announcing and interviewing.

That said we did have a lot of great interviews in 2020 that I loved doing. Some of the interview highlights for me this year were our interviews with Emily Swallow (The Mandalorian and Supernatural), Henry Simmons (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Rena Owen (Star Wars and Siren), Elizabeth Grullon (Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order), Kid Beyond (Star Wars: Republic Commando and The Walking Dead Telltale Game), Piotr Michael (Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4), Reggie Watkins (Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War), Megan MacPhee (Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS), Justin Badger (Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s, ZEXAL and Duel Links), Liza Kaplan (Yu-Gi-Oh! GX and Duel Links), Colby Hollman (Fear The Walking Dead) and Sherri Chung (Batwoman and Riverdale composer). Every guest that was on EGP this year though was very kind and fantastic to interview. I want to thank everyone that was a guest on the podcast this year as we really enjoyed talking to all of you and really appreciate that you joined us on the podcast. We hope to talk to you again sometime.

Now for some teases regarding 2021 plans. We’ll have a lot of guests next year from both Star Wars and Marvel both with new content and media that has been out a while from both franchises. We have a lot of plans for both franchises. There’s a lot of amazing content coming up from both franchises in 2021. Star Wars is debuting the Star Wars: The Bad Batch and Star Wars: The Book of Boba Fett shows next year and we’ll absolutely be trying to get interviews from both soon after they premier if not even before the premieres. We’ll have a lot of guests from previous Star Wars media too. We had a lot of The Mandalorian interviews this year and that will continue in 2021. We’ve already done a few Season 2 interviews recently and we’ve got a lot of interviews from both seasons already confirmed. In fact our first The Mandalorian interview of 2021 is on Saturday!

In regards to Marvel we’ll have a lot more Marvel guests in 2021 than we did this year. We’re really excited for all of the Marvel releases coming this year and are really excited to have a lot of new Marvel interviews this year both from upcoming and previously released Marvel films and TV shows. We’re really looking forward to starting new guest announcements soon.

We’ll also be doing a lot of new Yu-Gi-Oh! and Pokémon interviews in 2021 as we know you love those. We had a bunch of great interviews from both this year including several guests that had never done Yu-Gi-Oh! and/or Pokémon interviews before EGP. We’ve got more great interviews like those coming up for both franchises in 2021 including with some mystery names that will hopefully get more characters credited to the right actors. Stay tuned.

Of course we’ll also be doing interviews with guests from lots of other media as well. We already have our first two interviews of 2021 confirmed and scheduled. More details on these two interviews coming soon.

We started uploading interviews to our YouTube channel again in the last few months of this year and hope to start uploading more regularly again in 2021. I’m currently doing a creative digital media college course which includes learning video and audio editing so both myself and Máirin are editing interviews at the moment. My aim is that at some point we’ll get back to uploading 2-3 interviews per week to the channel but that might take a few more months since I’ve got a lot on my plate between other EGP work and my college course and Máirin has things going on in her life too. We will still be uploading interviews before then though and hopefully one as early as this weekend. We also intend to get back to doing toy reviews soon as well as uploading interviews.

We’re hoping that 2021 will be one of the biggest if not the biggest years for EGP so far. Thanks, as always, for your continued support and I look forward to bringing a lot more fantastic Everything Geek Podcast content next year.
