We ended the Seattle Geekly podcast back in mid 2011, We've been thinking of bringing it back but we need help monetarily.

Our Seattle Geekly podcast was originally from Feb 2009 to June 2011 and we had 98 episodes.  We interviewed such geeky people as Felicia Day, Len Wein (Wolverine creator), actor Doug Jones (Abe Sapien from Hellboy 1&2), authors Brenda Cooper, Seanan McGuire and we interviewed many geek bands like Kirby Krackle, Death Star & MC Frontalot. We also covered cons like PAX, Emerald City Comic Con, Norwescon & Crypticon.

Our podcast ended in mid 2011, and we've been thinking of starting it up again.  It'll be mostly the same but the episodes will be shorter (45 mins to 1.5 hours) and we won't be able to cover as many local conventions as much as before. 

If you'd like us back and we make the Kickstarter goal we'll commit to 1 year of podcasting or 48 episodes (not 52 due to holidays and such).  We'll have the same format, sharing our Geek Week, reviews of books, films, music, etc., interviews with authors, actors, directors, con people, etc., and other geeky issues or news. Shannon will watch horrible geeky genre BAD movies and find at least three things good about them like she did before.  Sometimes Shannon might do the interviews by herself, but don't PANIC, Matt will co-host the podcast. We'll also keep our Twitter account @seattlegeekly updated with links to news and other geeky things & revive our Facebook page to keep in touch with our fans.  The podcasts will be available through iTunes as well as our website.  Looks like our website name was bought from under us so we've started again on either www.TheSeattleGeekly.com or www.SeattleGeekly.net.

We had to end the old podcast due to $$ restraints, but that's where YOU nice people come in!  We need help to pay for our Post Office Box, our marketing material & we'll be designing a new logo, any extra money will be going to get you content.  All that and the cost of the Kickstarter rewards will go to making you have a geek year of fun!

If this does go through, we'll be able to re-start the podcast by late November 2013.  We'll have to get in touch with some of the publishers that we had send us books in the past, like DC Comics, TOR Books, Quirk Books & more. With that restarted we'll have time to read a book or two for our first few episodes. Some of the rewards say the estimated shipping will be in February 2014, and that's just so we can schedule all our Guest Hosts & play dates that we have as rewards.

Unfortunately we took down our website in 2011, so not many of the episodes are on the web. I've found some by torrents, so if you haven't heard our show, you can Google us. Just beware of Torrent sites. Feel free to email us and we'll select an old episode to send you.

Thanks for reading through all that!  If you'd like to support us, please pledge.  Our name is Seattle Geekly but we've interviewed people from all over the world, so even if you aren't local you'll still be entertained.

Thanks so much!

--Shannon & Matt

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Our risks and challenges are that it might take over a year to produce 48 episodes due to family & such, but we WILL get the promised 48 episodes up! As for the rewards, there might be a slight production delay (due to our logo getting done), but I factored that in on the shipping estimate.

If you can think of anything you'd like to know more about, please email us at seattlegeekly@gmail.com
