Geek Shall Inherit Episode 018 – Spring Comes to the International House of Podcasts!
April 9, 2012

While Daniel and Jason are desperately crunching the numbers for their taxes, they had time to sit down for another hour to hash out what’s new this week in the world of pop culture.  We put the call out to you, the listener, to help us name our segments.  Jason shows off his legs, and let me just say thank God this show is only audio!  We delve deep on Captain Action, we are troubled by David Lynch’s new project and Jason still can’t confront his true feelings for Zoey Deshanel.  And, as always we run off on some tangents about The Ruttles, shorts, documentaries and much more!

In this episode the guys cover:

  • Whats new they are watching on TV:  Game of Thrones, Justified, The Killing, Bent and the New Girl
  • What We’re Excited About:  Daniel – Captain Action (in stores) making his triumphant return to store shelves.  Jason- Monty Python and Holy Grail BluRay DVD/the the biopic airing Sat nite, ‘Holy Flying Circus’.
  •  Trailer Park- New Trailers for:  Total Recall remake and a new Avengers  trailer.

And MUCH, MUCH more!

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on,, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post,,,, Boing-Boing,, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
