The Force Awakens – Universal Geek Podcast Episode 244


Happy New Year, geeks. We hope the new year finds you in good spirits. We return from our hiatus and we are eager to talk about one thing: Star Wars. As we’ve pointed out before on this podcast, Star Wars is one of the pillars of geek culture so it stands to reason it is something we desire to discuss.

Do not listen to this episode if you fear spoilers. We hold no punches as we’ve been dying to have a frank and open conversation about The Force Awakens.

We also have a reminder about the Universal Geek Book Club. This month we are reading KoKo Takes a Holiday.  Go ahead and read it and join us in discussing it in February!
