Geek Shall Inherit Episode 111 – Going Deep
September 1, 2014

logoI hope all of you US listeners are enjoying the long holiday weekend.  I know I am.  Here we are at our alliteration episode, number 111… is it still alliteration if it’s with numbers and not letters?

As we discuss in this episode we now live in a world with a 12th Doctor, and just yesterday we got word that Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is now the highest grossing film of 2014. So there’s lots of great things happening in the world of geek right now and we are just the two men to talk about it.

Jason was a little under the weather in this episode in case you don’t think he’s his usual peppy self.  But there was pop culture to be discussed so he sucked it up and sat down for another brand new hour geek talk.

 

In this episode we discuss:

All that and much more in episode 111.

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.
