Geek Shall Inherit Episode 094 – Mid-Season Break
December 12, 2013

logoOk… it’s not really a mid-season break. We’re both such jet-setters, traveling the globe that it was a little hard to connect for a few weeks there, but we’re back with an all new episode of pop culture discussion. We had to come back THIS week, after all on THIS day (Dec 12th) two years ago we launched the FIRST episode of GSi!   It’s our 2nd anniversary of launching the ‘Geek Shall Inherit’ podcast! Can you believe that? 2 years worth of episodes! That’s crazy to me.

But as we’ve said before, what makes it all worth is is you folks listening, Thanks for all the comments, feedback and suggestions. We read every single one and we love hearing from you guys! Thanks for a great 2 years! Here’s to many more!

 

In this episode we discuss:

 

All that and more in episode 094!

Daniel Pickett
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 www.ActionFigureInsider.com. 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 MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, 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.
