Welcome to Getting Geeky with Gamer Leaf! I'm so glad you ventured onto our Kickstarter campaign.

$1000: Better Mobile Equipment (Un-Locked!)   - Getting Geeky with Gamer Leaf gets his laptop upgraded so he can bring you even more episodes on days Lady Leaf is down and out and he can't use the office. (And they won't sound like they did when he began podcasting). And when he's able to make it to Cons he'll be able to do on-site recording.

$1500: Yoga Instruction (Un-Locked!) Fan Created Stretch Goal (Note: Fan may have taken the term 'stretch goal' literally)

$10,000- I will put out 1 podcast episode every day for the remainder of the year except on Sundays

$What else? I really want some fan choices!!!!


 Are you new to gaming? I used to think this was one of the only games out there: 

 I was wrong! My wife showed me a few games here and there. But, Bloodrage was the game that showed me what hobby games are and really hooked me! 

2 years ago I set out to make other families aware of the infinite possibilities out there as well. That's when Getting Geeky with Gamer Leaf was born. It is a gaming podcast from our family's perspective. The Podcast includes:  

  • Story (we will tell you the story of our gameplay of the featured game) and then our reviews of the game. 
  • We also highlight Kickstarters that we find interesting or wish we could back. 
  • AAA (Adventures in Application Acquisition) in which we tell you about both ios and android applications (Some compared to their tabletop games and some that aren't games outside of the app) 
  • The story of our Role Playing as a family (We started off playing Too Many Bones). We also interview game designers, publishers, game store owners, other media content creators & everyday gamers. This is a family show!

We've come a long way from our 1st episodes! Catch some of our latest episodes HERE:

And, here's a directory of podcasts!



I could tell you about the podcast till I'm blue in the face. But, Let's see what others are saying: 

Founder of one of my favorite podcast and also runs a board game publishing company both under the same umbrella of Tuesday Knight Games, Alan Gerding had this to say “It is obvious that Gamer Leaf has a sincere passion for gaming and provides an abundant amount of content with incredible consistency.” 

Chris the Founder & Editor-in-Chief  of Casual Game Insider as well as the Creator and CEO of Boardy.TV said "I love the kids' perspectives. They are probably the most blunt reviewers I know of, and their comments can be very humorous at times."

Richard Simpson of We're Not Wizards Tabletop and Board Games Podcast said: "Getting Geeky with Gamer Leaf podcast is the second hardest working podcast in the world"

Josh from who brought us Frontier the Card Game and will be re-launching Monster Maina had this to say: "Getting Geeky With Gamer Leaf is one of my favorite podcasts. We love being featured on it as well as listening to it!"

JC with Wooden Shoe Games says "Getting Geeky With Gamer Leaf is my go-to podcast for getting through the day."


John Christopher said "It's more fun than poking myself with a cattle prod"


 But, we'd like to make it even better! That's where you come in!

That's a great question. I'm glad you asked.

We’d like to continue providing you with great content so the lights must stay on!

 Plus, we'd love to be able to expand on what we already do by upgrading our equipment and adding some new segments to bring you even better shows.

By upgrading our current equipment, we will be able to bring you a more crisper cut podcast that will allow for you to Get Geeky, Stay Geeky and Bring others into the Geek fold as we boast. Plus we'd love to be able to review even more games for you and your family. So, you can know what we thought before you go out and spend your hard earned green.

 So to boost those funds, we're running this modest campaign. Like stated in the AWESOME video (Top of the page) created by Glendon who brought us the game Zombs (Catch our interview with him down there.

 and our review of his game: 

  This all boils down to: We want to make THE BEST podcast we can for YOU!

Wait, I thought you said in your video you wouldn't charge for reviews? We don't this is to get us to be able to play a game sooner than we would other wise, because there is a cost

Risks and challenges

A season of podcast content requires a substantial and sustained effort. Having completed two years of content already, I'm fully aware of the effort and time commitment required to interview and/or play games, edit, upload, and share content.

Over the course of a calendar year, an assortment of personal/life matters can come up. I endeavor to always stay ahead of schedule to mitigate this risk, but in the event something unexpected occurs, I'll endeavor to get back on track as quickly as possible.
