Everything Geek Podcast- A Look Ahead to 2016

Hello everyone,

Another year has drawn to a close. It has been an exciting year at the Everything Geek Podcast. I wanted to take this time to thank every one of you who has supported us, regardless of whether you’ve been following us since we began or are a recent follower. We couldn’t continue to do what we do without your support and therefore I thank you for the support you’ve shown us.

It’s hard to believe we only started our podcast in 2013 as so much has happened since. We’ve now interviewed over 100 guests and it has been a pleasure to interview everyone who has given their time to talk to us and tell their stories. 2014 ended on a strong note for us when we had the opportunity to interview big-name actors Ryan Gage (The Hobbit) and James Arnold Taylor (Star Wars: The Clone Wars), but 2015 was a much stronger year for us with more big-names joining us. Interviews that I was particularly excited to conduct this year included Gary Kurtz (Star Wars), Chloe Bennet (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D), Sarah Bolger (Once Upon a Time), Erin Cahill (Power Rangers), Murray Gold (Doctor Who), Reggie Lee (Grimm), Robert Kurtzman (Horror), Chris Chalk (Gotham) and Samuel Anderson (Doctor Who). However, everyone we have interviewed have been a joy to talk to and we look forward to welcoming more guests onto the podcast in 2016.

However, the highlight of the year for us was undoubtedly the launch of our very own website (which you are reading this article). I spent five months working on it this year (May-September) and I’m very happy with the finished website which already has over 700 views. The launch of our website was very exciting for me and I’m thankful to everyone who was patient while we worked on it and have been checking our website since. Our website has already had viewers from 35 countries and it means a lot to me that we’re reaching people in many different countries. We’ve always aimed to appeal to as many geeks around the globe as possible and it’s great to know we’re doing just that.

The launch of our website proved (beyond any doubt) that we’re really becoming a bigger podcast, but getting invited by the BBC to attend a press screening of Doctor Who also showed the progress we have made in just over two years. Unfortunately I was unable to attend but it meant a lot for us to be invited by the BBC themselves.

As you can tell, 2015 was a big year for the podcast but we’re hoping that 2016 will be even bigger. Our priority for the year is to finally set up an iTunes account (as this has been requested by numerous followers) and to get our Everything Geek Comic Cast broadcasting on a weekly basis. We have other plans but those two are the priorities for 2016. We’re also going to look into setting up our own phone app soon as we know a number of our listeners only listen in on mobile devices.

I already mentioned the guests as we had a lot of great guests join us in 2015 and we’re hoping that 2016 will bring us many more great interviewees. 2016 is going to be a big year with the vast number of geeky movies and TV shows coming out and we’re hoping to have special guests from a lot of these to provide interviews for you. We’re in talks with guests from most of these already and some we think are very likely to appear on the podcast in 2016. Our first guest of 2016 was scheduled earlier this week.

Thank you again for your support and I hope you’re excited for more content from us in 2016.

New details on the big superhero fight scene in Captain America: Civil War have been revealed.

This scene sees all of the Avengers taking part in a massive fight scene. The details read as follows:

“Black Widow beats down Ant-Man while Hawkeye and Scarlet Witch attack…something…in the sky (you can’t tell what, since the VFX aren’t done yet). Iron Man is locked onto Captain America, flying into place and slugging it out with Cap despite some practical issues (the camera was too close for Chris Evans to keep throwing punches without hitting it). The scene, they say, wraps with Iron Man knocking Cap to his knees, “but he won’t stay there.”

Captain America: Civil War is scheduled for release on May 6th, 2016.
